A paper by Farrow et al., Farrow A, Taylor H, Northstone K, Golding J, Symptoms in mothers and infants and use of aerosols and air fresheners, has just been published in the journal Archives of Environmental Health. It is part of the ALSPAC 'Children of the 90s' study in Bristol. The work is featured on the BBC News and IC Wales web sites. Air fresheners and aerosols used in the home can cause diarrhea and earache in youngsters and depression in their mothers, according to the researchers.
