Traffic fumes can increase miscarriage riskToxic traffic fumes can increase the risk that women will miscarry, researchers have warned.

They said that women should avoid getting pregnant when there were high levels of pollution in the air.

Testing diesel fumes on fertilised eggs in the laboratory, the scientists found that the pollution could cause a reduction in the number of cells in one part of the embryo.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
