can have long-lasting effects on IQ.

Despite Currie and Aizer's overall conclusion that infant health has improved, unanswered questions remain providing fodder for future work. The researchers write that it would be helpful to know, for example, how exposure to diseases like the flu compares with exposure to pollution, but the science isn't there yet.

"Looking backward, we can ask, how much of the recent gain in infant health is due to the various aspects we have discussed? Which public policies and programs have had the most impacts on infant health while also counteracting the negative effects of growing income inequality? Which are the most cost-effective?

"Looking forward, we can ask, what are the most promising strategies for continuing to improve infant health, and how much will this improvement reduce inequality in years to come?"
