Born in Bradford (BiB) is one of the world´s largest longitudinal studies with 13,500 babies and their mothers, and one of the cohorts participating in the HELIX project. On friday 16th June, a BiB BBC Radio4 broadcast aired, where Winifred Robinson speaks with BiB researchers and volunteers about factors influencing health, including air pollution, exercise levels and diet.

Children were followed, who as part of the study, were given air pollution monitoring back packs as they go about their daily lives. These are equipped with ultra violet analysis and I-phones that track their route to and from school and link exposure levels through local pollution monitoring units. The backpacks sit next to the youngsters during class and even give an indication of exposure during play times, for example. Those taking part give samples which are being monitored and assessed when variables, like the school route, are changed.
