Quiz: Test Your Knowledge About Black Carbon!

Let’s start the quiz

Research published in Nature Communications highlights the harmful effects on fetal infants' health due to the placement of air pollutants in the placenta. According to research, the placenta of women exposed to high concentrations of 'black carbon' was found to have a high level of black carbon of an average size of 2.42 micrograms per centimeter cube. Air pollutants such as black carbon are found in the placenta from the mother's lungs. Has the potential to have severe health consequences on the infant. This is the main problem with low birth weight, which increases the child's vulnerability to other cardiovascular diseases including diabetes, asthma and heart stroke. Take this interesting trivia quiz about Black Carbon.
