137Cesium Exposure and Spirometry Measures in Ukrainian Children Affected by the Chernobyl Nuclear Incident
Erik R. Svendsen, Igor E. Kolpakov, [...], and Wilfried J.J.
We found that all spirometry measures decreased with increasing soil 137Cs, suggesting both obstructive and restrictive effects. The effects were most often strongest in the children living in villages with the second highest quintile of soil 137Cs, which is similar to what was previously found in this population with blood cell counts (Stepanova et al. 2008). These findings support the hypothesis that long-term exposure to 137Cs, likely through consumption of contaminated foods and local drinking water, is associated with decrements in lung function during child development.
