5, 2018 Even low levels of air pollution can pose a threat to the lungs of cigarette smokers, researchers say. They tested 29 nonsmokers, 71 smokers without lung disease, and 58 smokers with the lung condition chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The study found that the lungs of both groups of smokers could be harmed by levels of air pollution considered good by the U.S.

Some medical writers have tried to compare the level of air pollution in a given city with smoking a certain number of cigarettes per day, but this is an inaccurate analogy; the pollutants and carcinogens are different.

  • Denver learned this 5 years ago when there were fires above the city on the foothills. This is a bigger issue than people want to admit, it’s like smoking multiple packs of cigarettes a day…

  • I have asthma. I have a difficult time in the hayfever season. This year so so different yes, I suffer from the pollen in terms of a ruby nose and scratchy eyes. However, my breathing is perfect. I feel like I’m breathing pure oxygen. It’s great.

  • People will not tell you it is b. Spraying it from air plains us air force is in on it to their is over 70 d t of toxic chemicals t are spraying from the air plains all day long all over the world look it up

  • amazing video sir.
    continue this science related explanation in your channel.
    along with phones and gadgets stuffs, it’s amazing to see these science related videos. ☺��

  • Unless it’s a fake green contract that govt of CA burned landfill garbage over us in Loyalton that now burns 60,000 plus acres? No water to put it out? I don’t think it can be stopped, I think it’s a contract of karma and justice. AQMD did fine them, they just didn’t take responsibility in protecting human life so part of a crimes against humanity contract. Profits must be in the pockets, what do you think KCRA? Do you do unsolved crimes?

  • one more thing, led or incandescent bulb the power company generator will burn the same amount of coal which has no effect on pollution.

  • @geekyranjit since you have all the details and good knowledge on technologies, currently happening in the world. why can’t you think of manufacturing devices with your idea to our india.

  • 235,come to delhi ranjit, 235 is like pure air from hills for us. I agree situation is very bad and we need to seriously do something about it… Great video!

  • Smoking helps though. Smokers dont get Covid 19 as often. Nicotine prevents it entering the lungs. There are several researches already but WTO blocking them.

  • finally someone make a video on this. plz ranjit try to convince them. becz i’ m live in Delhi and these morons don’t understand at all. I’m tired by all this.

  • Well we must consider wildfires(Australia Siberia Brasil and North America),many volcanoes erupting ashes and of course human activity.
    Normal flu Kills 300000/700000 Every year and the virus usually dies when it’s spring time, but since we are in a solar minimum the reduced amount of UV rays let the virus last longer.now i’m not a doctor and i don’t know of this virus Is normal or a strong one, but i guess in these condition even a normal virus could have caused millions deaths.
    My bet? the lockdown was to prevent a worst scenario.

  • Hey #Ranjit..Liked your video. I just wanted to know if Ipods have better audio output VIA HEADPHONE than this phone since I my main purpose is to get awesome level of audio..also pls suggest me headphone in 2-3k for the same as i have to buy soon

  • This is what pope francis created he is evil the false prophet because he wants to control the world i will never go to on sunday i rather die yep he is gonna hunt people down im not afraid of him either my Sabbath is Saturday not sunday if anyone comments on this ill block you i dont neec nasty comments. Cheryl cacchione

  • sir can you make an video for Samsung galaxy s7 edge that when we will be getting an software update of Android N Nougat because some other countries they got an official update from Samsung when Indian users will be getting an update??? contact me on instagram: mkmm_101 or mesg me on whatsapp +917799087865

  • Excellent! I asked this question 3 weeks ago and now, bring out your dead. How is it that in this “capitalist” society, the price of oil and coal doesn’t include the cost of these pollution-induced infections and death?

  • No science to this as all. More air polution = more people. Whereas smoking is showing to have a protective effect which kind of blows the air pollution theory out the water.

  • well air pollution and covid-19 death rates are not completely linked. Death rates in nz, sweden, norway, finland, iceland, with very clean air are higher than those in heavily polluted hong kong and taiwan. Miami, with clean air has also has a higher death rate than la, the most polluted city in america. Vietnam, a very polluted country hasn’t recorded a single death

  • Simple answer is yes… air pollution interferes with the effiency of the respiratory system and coronavirus tries to kill you by blocking air from gettin in through your lungs. So if its like asking if its easier to close a door which is half way closed?.. yes, except not cool if this door is my lungs������

  • delhi pm are also bad:( also not everyone can afford purifiers, this video is really good and ur methods of reducing levels are good, hope everybody will understand this.

  • We have more than 100 years of scientific evidence that air pollution causes
    all manner of respiratory chronic debilitating conditions asthma among them.
    It also attacks the immune system. Now Trump has decided to liquidate our
    Clean Air and Water Protections Acts.We must stop Trump and the GOP
    must be stopped.

  • If you can smell smoke inside your house you need to go buy a 20×20 box fan and a Hepa filter for Pm2.5 particles and You can breath free again

  • Question to scientist: Air pollution, surely there will be other signs and evidence of people reacting differently to it than only lung issues?
    Possibly it manifests in other areas of the body, for example even mental ailments. Take oxygen away, and replace most of it with poison, there is no way only some people can show illnesses. It could very well be disguised in other areas of human body and wellbeing.

    Opinion on environmental impact of our lifestyle and human “progression”: We have to change the way we live, it is the only way we can make a change to air pollution, and other environmental damaging conditions to human life. If we pay the proper sacrifices, the pain would be much less than watching people suffer and die across the world, and experience the pain of death in our families, from a pandemic. When will we learn?

  • California has the world leading environmental protection agency and the best air quality control regulations. Does wood smoke affect air quality?

  • Proud to know the researchers are working on track to fight against covind-19..rather than wasting on silly question whether to wear mask or not?I believe in this era’s of education/technology and advancement..v are way too far and sensible enough to decide the benefits of wearing an underwear

  • The reason it’s hitting Detroit so hard here is because more people die of asthma attacks then gun deaths every year; it ain’t people smoking, it’s the amount of uncleaned hazardous waste sites in poor neighborhoods.

  • Air pollution is what caused covid 19. People are being expected to wear a mask outdoors, because it’s the pollution making people sick. Acting like people babies covid and spread it, that’s a lie, towns without covid suddenly have covid because of the pollution in the air

  • Please take in the number of Chinese residents who returned these places after the visit to China. The Coronavirus was found in China, and was imported to the rest of the world. The Chinese population in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, the USA, Japan, and South America is huge. In Africa, they are found in South Africa, Namibia, Tanzania, Congo, Kenya, Nigeria, Zambia, and Ethiopia. The rest of African countries introduced border closure early. Do far the number of infected is kept low.

  • It would seem like common sense that polluted air would make any respiratory disease worse. Where I live, people sometimes die from asthma attacks, and allergies are rampant. It’s the third worse polluted air basin in the United States (Central Valley, CA). We get air alerts all summer and most of fall for hazardous levels of PM 2.5 and ozone. So far, not too many deaths from the coronovirus, but the peak is not here yet, just like the other “red” states. Not nearly as densely populated as a big cosmopolitan metropolis.

  • Great video Ranjit, I learned so much in a short time. Now I’m able to explain it to my colleagues and family members. Much appreciated!!

  • Roof of the world Himalayan Mountain that area no coronavirus infection and interior Mountain land in India too no infection what he’s talking about.
    Because of the wrong religious belief Bad Karma

  • Replace fuel cars by battery cars if possible. but this would take long time.
    and Coal electricity plants should be replaced by Water based power plants

  • Feeling a bit lucky sitting here in Himachal Pradesh.

    Climate change is REAL, Pollution is REAL, Rising Sea Levels are REAL. What’s disheartening is that not only India but other foreign countries do not care about this issues either.

    Donald Trump doesn’t even believe in Global Warming and says it’s a hoax. We will regret not taking action against this sooner, I can guarantee that.

  • If some one is possitive in cronavirus and after 14 days he recover from the disease is there any chance it will attack the same person again? Even he not get virus again by some one the same virus which was finish his body after 14 days?

  • This study is wishful thinking… First, they ignore Mumbai and Dehli that are the most polluted places on the planet and are still ok, or NY with less polution but same impact. The reason North Italy was affected is because it started from there and because it’s the most sense area of Italy… the reason Wuhan was affected is because it was the first place infected.

  • Bshit, stop spreading rumors. Furthermore everyone knows how reliable chinas statements are true. if there was a link there wouldn’t have been such a spike in Iran, USA no link with air pollution with covid19 virus.

    The only possible link is how strong is your immune system, due to already suffering health conditions.

    But this is still less likely than factors like age, air temperature, socialist lifestyle, diet, and health condition like weak lungs, diabetes, weak heart.

    Again this clears out there’s no direct link btw two

  • Yes of course air pollution caused corona virus to spread all over the world got everybody to wear mask which closed cats and planes used lots of fuel that cause pollution but Coronavirus still slowing down there’s vaccines but gonna have to make sure it’s gonna take more weeks unless warm weather comes schools closed till fall Disney parks closed till January all businesses closed until the Coronavirus spread shutdown

  • I use AC in winter. My father gets angry about it but my nose hurts outside…. Thank God I live in the outskirts. Kolkata is too damn polluted.

  • these thermal plants are mostly owned by politicians and there is very slow growth for solar panels in India where in US there is Tesla which is running fine. they recently even launched solar roofs!!

  • 1:46 Yaron Ogen focused on nitrogen dioxide, but could the virus being hitching a ride on ammonia? It’s a ‘sticky’ poorly understood smog component (sources manure, fertilizers). Gaseous ammonia reaches very high levels in bat caves where the virus likely originated. The guano collects on floor of cave, often a foot deep. Maybe the virus developed an affinity with the ammonia molecule?

  • Thanks ranjit, finally you started the war against pollution. hope other tech channels to follow it and make it a trending topic. Then only gov & people take it seriously.

  • other thing is why in easten germany and why in other central europenian countries outbrake is so insignificant -i heard that it has to do with turbeculosis vaccinnes which has been used in those areas after the WW2

  • Thinking Mind:

  • Chinese government has been a perpetual liar since 1949. Now China lies, the world dies. Now it’s time to social distancing from China.

  • we have launched the world’s best airpurifier in India. Where you do not have to change filters as it works on the water filteration system.

  • CHEMTRAILS!!!! are people still this blind? chemtrails are polluting the entire world, the globalists are spraying aluminum, barium, strontium, lithium in nano size for DECADES! Haven’t you noticed the lines in the sky?

  • I live in Milan…new cycling routes are being built… will it help? Who knows, but at least we are sure that using a bike as a means of transportation cannot harm anybody.

  • Scientist has always said this!!! Bats and other animals that Asians eat only eat mosquitoes and insects so ya! Hence the circle of life!!!

  • thanks for the video, I now understand more, and will take more concern of air quality I breath for the sake of my health.. Like like like..

  • If you have a question about the coronavirus crisis or COVID-19, ask our science correspondent Derrick Williams here. Every day he answers three of your queries on our COVID-19 Special! #askDerrick

  • There is no doubt that pollution adversely affects health. As for relationship of corona virus infections with pollution, New York today has the highest number of corona virus infections in the world. Do you mean to say that New Delhi has a cleaner environment than New York. I doubt it very much.

  • I can tell ya while Canada was having the wildfires, the wind was blowing it down here to Seattle and the sky was barely visible. Made it harder to run stairs I’ll tell ya that— limiting exposure and avoiding outdoor exercise made me too antsy though! I suppose I could have run with then N95! Why didn’t I think of that?! ��

  • We got air purifier today and while making roti. It went to 500. Mind u that also the burning of dead bodies which u didn’t mention has a big big effect in India especially.

  • Good Review Rajit Sir, i request you to share in other social media and u r friends accounts and other youtube reviewers. The Govt. does not think on this point. Recently, from vijayawada to machilipatnam national highway road expansion work is going write now and lots of Huge tree were cut down. How shame us on. Where we are going.

  • Please don’t ask us to do anything. We are too lazy to do anything for this country. Our only responsibility towards this nation is to vote. The government should do everything for us.

  • Thanks for the video.

    I found the Descriptions here: https://grist.org/video/portable-air-sensors-are-changing-the-way-we-see-air-pollution/
    and “How to build a DIY air pollution sensor” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2Y9n6fhoxI

  • Maybe public spaces need to be “set up” with the same kind of “Biohazard Air Conditioning” that Elon Musk’s minions are shoehorning into his Tesla automobiles. (On a much larger scale, of course. {Same Story as what gets done today, when a heat dome builds over a part of this “Land of the Fee” where air conditioning is an Optional Extra; when one is considering the purchase of a home.)

  • I was half expecting an animation of a corona virus getting onto suspended particulate matter and riding it into a human nose. The takeaway is Correlation is not Causation.

  • My students wanted to go out and play in one of our Amador county schools this week but illegal aliens from Mexico kill them too much.

  • sir it would be great if u do a hands-on review for the new 500 and 2000notes and explain them for the people’s general awareness…

  • PM 2.5 is totally fine suck it all in its good for your health. C02 reduction is what we need to focus on we need to spend billions reducing it because of a theory, dont worry about pm 2.5.

  • Another important thing we should do is installing solar panels on the roof of our house,that saves more energy,in the long term shows impact.Nice video

  • Air Purifiers is just a temporary solution only for those who can afford..I hope everyone who watches this Video do their bit atleast at their home by planting trees,not burning plastic & behave as responsible citizen who value their health & their future generation
