    Air pollution may be damaging every organ in the body

    Air pollution may be damaging every organ in the body

    Good thing we are fast developing cleaner energy sources.

    Air pollution may be damaging every organ and virtually every cell in the human body, according to a comprehensive new global review.


    The research shows head-to-toe harm, from heart and lung disease to diabetes and dementia, and from liver problems and bladder cancer to brittle bones and damaged skin. Fertility, foetuses and children are also affected by toxic air, the review found.


    The systemic damage is the result of pollutants causing inflammation that then floods through the body and ultrafine particles being carried around the body by the bloodstream.


    Air pollution is a “
    public health emergency”, according to the World Health Organization, with more than 90% of the global population enduring toxic outdoor air. New analysis indicates 8.8m early deaths each year – double earlier estimates – making air pollution a bigger killer than tobacco smoking.
    But the impact of different pollutants on many ailments remains to be established, suggesting well-known heart and lung damage is only “
    the tip of the iceberg”.


    “Air pollution can harm acutely, as well as chronically, potentially affecting every organ in the body,” conclude the scientists from the
    Forum of International Respiratory Societies in the two review papers, published in the journal Chest. “Ultrafine particles pass through the [lungs], are readily picked up by cells, and carried via the bloodstream to expose virtually all cells in the body.”

    The takeaway is to live in the US where the air and water are clean.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    The EPA is tyrannical. It would be a good thing if we stripped it of all powers save for advisory studies.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    As compared to the Kenyan EPA which deliberately dumped a billion gallons of arsenic poisoned mine water into the Animas river.

    Can you show us which EPA regulations have been "gutted" that will endanger clean air and water? No? Didn't think so. Your talking point overlords don't give you that kind of detail.

    Every life matters
