Multi-centre prospective cohort study of environmental exposures during pregnancy and childhood in Korea
The Mothers and Children's Environmental Health (MOCEH) study is a prospective hospital and community based cohort study designed to collect information related to environmental exposures (chemical, biological, nutritional, physical, and psychosocial) during pregnancy and childhood. It will examine how exposure to some environmental pollutants affects growth, development, and disease in infants and children. Cell phones and electromagnetic fields will be assessed in this study. The authors expect to enroll about 1500 pregnant women between 2006 and 2010 and then conduct more studies with their children up to 5 years of age.
