STUDY: Police Shootings of Unarmed Black Americans May Affect Health of Black Infants – SCIENTISTS SAY

A new study has found that police killings of unarmed black Americans may be linked to health problems for black infants who live in the area.

The research, published on Wednesday by sociologist Joscha Legewie in the peer-reviewed journal Science Advances , found that black infants born near the site of a police shooting of an unarmed black individual have a higher rate of being born prematurely and have a significantly lower birth weight than infants not born near similar incidents.
