The neurotoxicity of NO2 exposure is well-known and potentially causes impaired of neural functions. This review aimed to estimate associations between prenatal NO2 exposure and neurodevelopment for children. Articles published until May 2019 reported prenatal NO2 exposure and children’s cognition, psychomotor, language, attention, IQ, and behavior function were searched according to all related terms. The main databases we retrieved included PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, and Cochrane Library… 
Anesthetic Exposure During Childhood and Neurodevelopmental Outcomes: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
Findings support the hypothesis that associations between anesthetic exposure during childhood and subsequent neuro developmental deficits differ based on neurodevelopmental domain.
Neurobehavioural and cognitive effects of prenatal exposure to organochlorine compounds in three year old children
The data confirm the observations that neurobehavioral development of young children is adversely influenced by environmental concentrations of PCBs, especially in boys, and hypothesize that an underarrousal pattern may play a role in the spectrum of effects measured in toddlers prenatally exposed to PCBs and dioxin-like compounds.

It is critical to reduce personal and community‐level exposures through tight collaboration of interdisciplinary and multi‐level bodies including community partners, physicians, industry partners, policy makers, public health practitioners, and researchers.
Traffic costs of air pollution: the effect of PM2.5 on traffic violation
Although emerging studies have investigated the effect of air pollution on traffic crashes, it is unclear to scholars whether air pollution affects another road safety problem—traffic violations. To
Understanding temporary reduction in atmospheric pollution and its impacts on coastal aquatic system during COVID-19 lockdown: a case study of South Asia
Abstract The strict lockdown measures not only contributed to curbing the spread of COVID-19 infection, but also improved the environmental conditions worldwide. The main goal of the current study

The Association between Lead and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A Systematic Review
It is established that there is an association between lead and ADHD and that even low levels of lead raise the risk, however, there is still a lack of longitudinal studies about the relationship between lead exposure and the development of ADHD.
Particulate Matter Exposure and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Children: A Systematic Review of Epidemiological Studies
It is opine that further high quality studies are still needed in order to clarify the association between PM exposure and ADHD diagnosis, and found a significant degree of heterogeneity among the study designs.
A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Multiple Airborne Pollutants and Autism Spectrum Disorder
There is limited evidence of toxicity for the association between early life exposure to air pollution as a whole and diagnosis of ASD, and the strongest evidence was between prenatal exposure to particulate matter and ASD.
