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.
The toxins from indoor and outdoor air pollution can trigger eye infections, dry eye disease, eye irritation, burning and itching and vision problems, including blurry vision. This is nothing to take lightly. Scientific studies have confirmed that if exposure to toxic air is prolonged it has the potential to cause chronic and even serious eye diseases like glaucoma.
The results from a long-term study revealed a significant link between air pollution and an increased risk of hospital admissions for several neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other dementia-related conditions.
A new scientific study has demonstrated that RoundUp weedkiller triggers loss to biodiversity, thereby making ecosystems more vulnerable to pollution and climate change.
Chemicals in air pollution linked with serious eye disease: Living in a more polluted area is associated with a greater likelihood of having glaucoma, a debilitating eye condition that can cause blindness.
