What developed countries experience, developing countries like India experiences with manifold intensity. if young children in USA suffer due to air pollution, imagine the situation in India where pollution control is joke enforced on citizens.

I have hypothesis or say interpretation about Sita’s Agni Pariksha followed by transfer to Vashishtha Rishi’s ashram. To me, this was well-planned decision. Sita living in hermitage, in forest, giving birth to Luv and Kush, is perfect plan to me.
Child development in forest, with all sort of mother nature’s immune and intellect boosters.
Similarly, birth of Shri Krishna was in highly urbanized Mathura and grooming of Avtar is not possible in urban place. So? Arrangements were made so that Krishna can be groomed in natural environment, in vicinity of cows. Nanda’s home was perfect for it.
Release: Kids living near major roads at higher risk of developmental delays, NIH study suggests
Young children who live close to a major roadway are twice as likely to score lower on tests of communications skills, compared to those who live farther away from a major roadway, according to an analysis by researchers at the National Institutes of Health and the University of California, Merced. Moreover, children born to women exposed during pregnancy to higher-than-normal levels of traffic-related pollutants—ultra-fine airborne particles and ozone—had a small but significantly higher likelihood of developmental delays during infancy and early childhood. The study appears in Environmental Research.
“Our results suggest that it may be prudent to minimize exposure to air pollution during pregnancy, infancy, and early childhood—all key periods for brain development,” said Pauline Mendola, Ph.D., an investigator in the Division of Intramural Population Health Research at NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the study’s senior author.
