Data matched with information on the environmental situation.
it is Known that the poor environment adversely affects human health. And German scientists have found the dangers of air pollution.
turns out, there was a link between the sharp increase in the concentration of nitrogen oxides in the atmosphere and the risk of heart attacks and other cardiac abnormalities.
a Similar increase can be caused by emissions from thermal power plants and internal combustion engines. Experts examined the medical records of people who have had acute myocardial infarction that were treated at the University hospital of Jena since 2003 to 2010.
Experts took into account the increase in the concentration of not only NOx, but even of ozone and soot in the air. Revealed: the most pronounced was the negative effect of nitrogen oxides produced by combustion of hydrocarbon fuel.
In the case of increasing concentration of 20 micrograms per cubic meter of air the risk of acute heart attack for the day was doubled.
