Heart Disease Due to Exposure to Air Pollution, Those Most At Risk

Some researchers agree particles contained in air pollution potentially dangerous because it can lead to heart disease and stroke, especially if long-term exposure. But later was revealed who was the most harmed by this air pollution. After observing the effects of exposure to air pollution on the health conditions of 114 537 women in the 1989-2006 period, the researchers also found the answer. Starting from the findings of 6,767 cases of cardiovascular disease, 3,878 coronary heart disease, and 3295 strokes at the end of the study, researchers looked at women who suffer from diabetes, heart disease risk is much higher

than women who really healthy. Unsparing, for every 10 micrograms extra pollution particles are inhaled, then the question will be at increased risk of cardiovascular disease by 19 percent. They also could not escape from stroke, given the risk reaches 23 percent when exposed to pollution at the same volume. And the risk of these diseases automatically increased in women who are often exposed to exhaust fumes from vehicles, power generation industry, and the dust floating in the street. This does not include subtle and most dangerous particles contained in air pollution, or commonly referred to as PM 2.5. When

inhaled, the particles that come from vehicle exhaust fumes could increase the risk of heart disease by 44 percent and 66 percent for the risk of stroke. Horror, the third risk of these conditions are already visible on the person concerned only after exposure for 12 months or one year. \”Some say women with diabetes was exposed to more pollution and oxidative stress so that they are more susceptible to diabetes,\” explained researcher, Jaime E. Hart of Brigham and Women\’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, as quoted by FoxNews, Tuesday (1 / 12/2015). However, other experts believe this only

because diabetes is a disease that is triggered by inflammation in the body. \”The presence of airborne particles can be triggered inflammation deeper, and increasingly pressing our cardiovascular system,\” explained Dr. Bart Ostro of Air Pollution Epidemiology Section of the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment responding to the study. To that end he suggested that in addition to improving the lifestyle, keep eating, diligently taking medication and exercise, those with diabetes are not recommended to often be out in the open, especially in places with high levels of air pollution.
