BBC features CLAHRC research into pollution and young lungs

Professor Chris Griffiths featured on BBC’s the One Show last night talking about the impact of pollution on young lungs. The topical affairs programme ran a feature on the impact of poor air quality on children and young peoples (CYP) development.

Professor Griffiths is leading research into the impact of the Capitals’ upcoming Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) – introduced on April 1st – on both CYP respiratory health and physical activity levels. The ULEZ is predicted to deliver major improvements in London’s air quality, reducing nitrogen dioxide and particulate exposures in central London.

The ULEZ comes into force on April 1st

 

 

The feature runs from 6 minutes 30 seconds into last nights show
