High levels of particulate air pollution – commonly known as smog – raise the risk of heart attack and other serious heart problems, according to a new study. The researchers analyzed the results of more than 600,000 blood samples taken between 2003 and 2012 from more than 73,000 adults in southern Israel. All of the participants were smokers or had been diagnosed with diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure or too low/too high levels. Even low air pollution may cause you serious heart problems New research suggests that even low levels of air pollution may cause alterations in the heart that are akin to.

“This study confirms something that has long been suspected — air pollution’s tiny particles can play a role in serious heart disease. This is particularly true within the first few hours of. No.

The American Heart Association explains that although stress has not been proven to cause heart disease it may affect behaviors and factors that are proven to increase heart disease risk like high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, smoking, physical inactivity and overeating. Many recent studies have already suggested that air pollution poses a serious threat to health, finding associations between exposure to pollutants and an increased risk of conditions such as heart disease, asthma and male infertility.

Smog kills by aggravating asthma, bronchitis and a host of other lung conditions and by directly increasing the risk of heart attacks through carbon monoxide exposure.

  • How about being awakened five mornings each week by a fellow at the end of the block who drives a Harley-Davidson? First, he warms it up in the driveway for ten minutes, then he zooms down the street to the corner and stops at the stop sign. Finally, he zooms up the next street until he stops at the highway and, finally, zooms up the highway. This is not a kid this is a man in his fifties who just loves motorcycles. He’s driving all of us crazy!!!…and we live in Idaho for crying out loud.
