A new study has found that nearly 2 million new cases of pediatric asthma every year may be caused by a traffic-related air pollutant, a problem particularly important in big cities. Equally disturbing, a second study by the same research team finds that 1.8 million excess deaths around the world are linked to urban air pollution.
Results from a new scientific study: Improved air quality over several years is associated with a reduced risk of dementia in elderly women.
A new scientific study has identified links between long-term exposure to ambient air pollution and metabolic-associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD).
According to new scientific study results, changes in the human sex ratio at birth—defined as the percentage of newborns that are boys—are associated with the presence of toxic levels of air and water pollutants.
New research findings reveal that the air quality within an office can have a significant impact on employees’ cognitive functioning, including response times and ability to focus, and it may also affect their productivity.
Some of the military bases the U.S. is leaving behind in Afghanistan are filled with toxic chemicals that can pose serious health and environmental problems, including substances that increase the risk of cancer and other diseases.. What is worse: these toxic sites may never get a full cleanup.
New study results have revealed that we are breathing in concerning levels of toxic outgassed PFAS chemicals inside our homes, schools and workplaces everyday.
The results of new research indicate that people with prediabetes or diabetes who live in ozone-polluted areas may have an increased risk for irreversible interstitial lung disease with a high mortality rate.
Another peer-reviewed scientific study has just been published linking air pollution and Alzheimer’s disease.
Two separate scientific studies have revealed some sobering news about the link between air pollution chemicals and serious brain harm. In the first study, higher exposures to air pollution chemicals were associated with increased depressive symptoms and subsequent memory decline. In the second study, people who had higher levels of air pollution exposure had more brain shrinkage–the kind of shrinkage commonly seen in people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
