    Scientists say hot temperatures could be linked to early births

    Scientists say hot temperatures could be linked to early births


    Birth records of 56 million Americans born between 1969 and 1988 found a spike in birth rates when temperatures reach 32.2C.

    An average of 25,000 babies were born up to two weeks early as a result of heatwaves..

    Shorter gestational periods have been linked to negative health and cognitive outcomes later in life.
