Air Pollution And Heart Diseases

Air Pollution And Heart Diseases

Mr. Arora was reading a medical article, ‘Air pollution is directly related to an increased risk of heart disease. Air pollution can cause inflammation and damage to the heart and blood vessels. Studies have shown that air pollution can increase the risk of heart attack, stroke or stroke, and other forms of heart disease.”

He read further on and learned that some ways air pollution can contribute to heart disease are particulate matter entering the lungs and causing inflammation. This can lead to increased blood pressure and damage to the lining of the arteries.

Mr. Arora decided to share this in his WhatsApp community along with the following information to spread awareness:

Air pollutants can cause heart rate and rhythm changes, leading to arrhythmias or cardiac arrest. Also, prolonged exposure to air pollution increases the risk of atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries.”

He concluded by adding, “You can reduce your risk of developing heart disease in many ways, such as lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels, eating a healthy, balanced diet, and quitting smoking and drinking. Heart patients should go out in the open less when the air pollution index is high; wear a mask if you have to go out. Do not do such work that requires much hard work, and consult your doctor occasionally.
