EOG WH – Prenatal and postnatal exposure to tobacco smoke, PAHs and heavy metals and the risk of respiratory diseases, allergy and poor mental and physical development (2009–2011)

The EOG WH project is a 3-year project (2009–2011) coordinated by NIOM with an objective to estimate the relationship between exposure to environmental factors in prenatal and postnatal life and health state and psychomotor development of children. Its goal is also to estimate children’s exposure (12, 18 or 24th month of life) to environmental tobacco smoke, PAHs and heavy metals and to estimate their health state  (respiratory system diseases, allergies, otitis media) and psychomotor development  - 300 children. Within the project concentration of cadmium and plumbum in 80 samples of blood taken from the 2nd  trimester of  pregnancy and  in 50 umbilical blood samples (materials collected within REPRO_PL) were marked.

Examination of health state and psychomotor development of 170 12-month old and 50 24-month old children  was carried out. As a result information flyers about the project were prepared. Information about the project  was placed in a form of an article in “ Nasze Zdrowie”. English-language website informing about the aims and methodology of Polish Birth Cohort was developed and created. In addition, assumptions, methodology and preliminary results of the project were also presented during several international conferences (5th International Conference on Children’s Health and the Environment, 2nd ENRIECO Meeting, XVIth International Scientific Conference "Children health and environmental factors”, ISES-ISEE Joint Conference, Global Congress of Maternal and Infant Health).
