Beware of air pollution! – Last minute Turkey and world news

SAFAKNA TURKEY- In CNN news, it was stated that British scientists have found that exposure to liquid or solid particles less than 2.5 micrometers in air pollutants, as well as high levels of nitrogen dioxide, causes low blood pressure in young people.

This relationship between environmental pollution and blood pressure was reportedly identified by scientists using data from a long-term study in London called “Determinants of social well-being and adolescent health”, which tracks the health status of large and ethnically diverse groups of children.

More than 3,200 young people were reported to have been included in the study, and annual reports of air pollution in youth areas were evaluated.

The study found that the particulate matter that causes pollution is 120 times thinner than a human hair, that it bypasses the body’s defense system when inhaled and enters the lungs, and then is not expelled with exhalation and mixed with the blood.

It has been stated that these particles cause irritation and inflammation and can eventually lead to many health problems.

It has been noted that exposure to particulate matter pollution can affect blood pressure by disrupting human circadian rhythms.

In addition, it has been stated that particulate pollution can reduce the ability of the kidneys to filter sodium during the day, which can lead to elevated blood pressure levels at night.

It is known that pollution levels in London far exceed the safe levels recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) for humans, and that in 2019, 99 percent of the world’s population lives in places that do not meet WHO recommended air quality. levels.

The study was published in the journal PLOS One.
