      "There's a causal connection between particulate matter and premature mortality from cardiovascular disease, and respiratory causes so we already know that air pollution .   Long term exposure to air pollution causes many of these diseases and makes respiratory illnesses more dangerous. Globally, air pollution is estimated to be responsible for nearly 40% of lower respiratory tract infections and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease burden and about 20% of coronary heart disease and diabetes burden.

    Daniel Vallero, in Fundamentals of Air Pollution (Fifth Edition), Respiratory Health Effects. Air pollutants cause many respiratory diseases, both acute and chronic. Acute diseases include a range from mild irritations to inflammation to allergic reactions to impaired lung function to complete respiratory failure depending on the level of exposure. Air pollution is a major environmental issue affecting respiratory health globally. The most notorious events to occur were in Los Angeles, CA, USA, in and London, UK, in , and were mainly attributable to coal combustion and traffic emission, which were characterised by different types and levels of pollutants, particularly sulphur dioxide and nitrogen by:

    Air pollution can come from factories, cars, and other sources. High levels of air pollution directly affect individuals with asthma, COPD, and other lung and heart conditions. Both particulate matter and ozone can cause damage to lung tissue and aggravate the symptoms of existing respiratory diseases like asthma (UDOH, b). Air pollution is closely associated with the development of respiratory illness. Behavioral adaptations of people to air pollution may influence its impact, yet this has not been investigated in the literature. Our hypothesis is that people experience and learn the underlying air quality to decide their adaptation, and they have a stronger incentive to behaviorally adapt to the air quality as Author: Tackseung Jun, Tackseung Jun, In-sik Min.

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

Air Pollution and Health is the first fully comprehensive and current account of air pollution science and it impact on human health. It ranges in scope from meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, and particle physics to the causes and scope of allergic reactions and respiratory.

The range of respiratory diseases that can be caused by air pollution exposure is large. Studies on the health impacts of air pollution differentiate between acute and chronic effects. The acute effects of pollution may be apparent within hours or days of exposure, but other health effects of air pollution result from long-term exposure, leading to chronic disease.

Emphysema is considered a smoker's disease. But it turns out, exposure to air pollution may lead to the same changes in the lung that give rise to emphysema.

Environ Health Perspect ; (1): A (Open access). Background. Air pollution is a major public health threat, particularly in urban areas with high traffic [].Current scientific evidence has demonstrated a potential association between urban air pollutants and adverse health effects, particularly those that affect the respiratory and cardio-vascular systems [4,5].Children, the elderly and subjects suffering from chronic disease are Cited by:   Heart Disease, Stroke, and Outdoor Air Pollution external icon; Protect Your Heart: Steps You Can Take to Reduce Health Effects from Air Pollution (EPA) external icon; Children’s Respiratory Health.

Children and teens may be more sensitive than adults to the health effects caused by air pollution — especially children with asthma. Studies have linked particle pollution exposure to a variety of respiratory health effects, including: Respiratory symptoms including cough, phlegm, and wheeze.

Acute, reversible decrement in pulmonary function. Inflammation of the airways and lung. Introduction. Air pollution is undoubtedly associated with a variety of diseases, and thus serves as an indirect cause of mortality.1,2 According to the World Health Organization (WHO) report forthree million deaths throughout the world were attributable to ambient air pollution.

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and respiratory disease (ResD) were responsible for respectively 72% and 14% Cited by: 2. The contributions of some 18 leading authorities ensure that each area is comprehensively covered and new to this edition are chapters on the genetics of lung disease, smoking, air pollution, sleep apnoea, diving, lung transplantation and medico-legal by:   The objective of this study was to assess the effects of air pollutants such as PMSO 2, NO 2, and O 3 on the mortality rates of respiratory disease (RD), including one subcategory of RD Cited by: admissions, emergency room visits, and doctor visits for respiratory diseases, especially in children with lung diseases such as asthma.

Particulate air pollution has also been associated with respiratory-related infant mortality, even at relatively low PM levels that. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

Air pollution is a major environment-related health threat to children and a risk factor for both acute and chronic respiratory disease. While second-hand tobacco smoke and certain outdoor pollutants are known risk factors for respiratory infections, indoor air pollution from solid fuels is one of the major contributors to the global burden of disease.

In poorly ventilated dwellings, indoor. Even everyday levels of air pollution may insidiously affect health and behavior. Indoor air pollution is a problem in developed countries, where efficient insulation keeps pollutants inside the structure.

In less developed nations, the lack of running water and indoor sanitation can encourage respiratory infections.

This post shall be focusing on 10 of such diseases caused by the air pollution and what pollutants cause them. #1 — Asthma: This is one of the most common diseases. Air Pollution and Your Heart - Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.1 Many factors are known to raise the risk of heart disease, including diet, smoking, inactivity, and genetic factors.

According to a growing body of research, air pollution also plays an important role in the development of heart disease and in.

"While there is growing evidence of the impact on lung health of numerous air pollutants, there have been few studies that have looked at acute respiratory diseases and air pollution. Air pollution and climate change have a significant impact on human health and well‐being and contribute to the onset and aggravation of allergic rhinitis and asthma among other chronic respiratory : Ibon Eguiluz‐Gracia, Alexander G.

Mathioudakis, Alexander G. Mathioudakis, Sabine Bartel, Susanne J. Air pollution is a major public health threat, particularly in urban areas with high traffic [1–3].Current scientific evidence has demonstrated a potential association between urban air pollutants and adverse health effects, particularly those that affect the respiratory and cardio-vascular systems [4, 5].Children, the elderly and subjects suffering from chronic disease are particularly Cited by: Chronic Respiratory Disease.

Air pollution is also related to asthma, a condition in which the airways swell, narrow and produce extra mucus, making it difficult to breathe. Exposure to polluted air not only worsens asthma and increases asthma-related hospitalization rates, but also plays a role in the development of this respiratory condition.
