Letter to the Editor: Comment on "Maternal exposure to air pollution and risk of autism in children: A systematic review and meta-analysis".

Environmental Pollution. 2020. Vol. 264. No. 114724. P. 1-3.

Dear Editor,

We read with interest the review and meta-analysis published recently in Environmental pollution written by Chun et al. (2020), which demonstrated that maternal exposure to air pollution increases the risk of developing an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children. Their conclusions are of major interest for readers considering that air pollution is already a main public health (The Lancet null.air p, 2017) and economic (Dockery and Evans, 2017) issue. However, some points and/or limitations of their review and meta-analysis should be discussed.
