A Study Finds The Risk Of Cardiovascular Diseases With The Combination To Noise And City (Urban) Traffic And Air Pollution
An earlier study has linked the following.
A current study at the Imperial College London shows the increased risk of cardiovascular diseases in an individual with the combination of noise and air pollution in cities (or urban areas).
The risk of contracting heart disease will be assessed with the blood biological markers. The inflammation caused due to the stress will be indicated in the C-reactive protein (CRP). Body inflammation may lead to heart diseases.
The researchers have analyzed the blood biological marker levels of 144,000 adults who were exposed to traffic-related air and noise pollution.
The study shows an association between traffic-related air and noise pollution to the increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. This study found the noise pollution is an independent risk factor for the increased risk of heart disease. They found an increase in blood sugar levels by 0.3 percent with every five decibels of noise increase. They also found that for every 10g/m2 increase in air pollution was linked to the following.
This study shows the scientific evidence of worsening of health from traffic-related air and noise pollution.
The author of the study was Dr. Yutong Cai, the Imperial College London and co-author of the study was Dr. Susan Hodgson, also from the Imperial College London. The study was published in the European Heart Journal. Title of the article is "Road traffic noise, air pollution and incident cardiovascular disease: A joint analysis of the HUNT, EPIC-Oxford and UK Biobank cohorts."
The Ginger Can Fight Against Body Metabolic Syndrome, Fat, Obesity And Diabetes
A study at the China Agricultural University, Beijing, China, shows the protection and beneficial effects against diabetes (high blood sugar levels), obesity and cardiovascular diseases with the consumption of ginger along with the food and drink or as ginger supplements.
A study was done on the health effects with ginger capsules in powder form, dissolved in beverages and in the form of a tablet. The researchers have analyzed about 60 previous studies on animals and humans and came to the above conclusion.
The authors say that ginger contains phytochemicals and antioxidants. These spice ingredients have been used as a herbal medicine for the treatment of a number of ailments. Ginger is a non-pharmaceutical option for the treatment of metabolic syndrome. The following are the positive benefits of ginger.
The authors say that the benefits are stronger in a test tube study and in the animals when compared with humans. Only a few human clinical studies were done due to lack of funds and due to the complex chemical composition of ginger.
But the study is unable to recommend the right ginger formulation and ginger dosage to get the clinical benefits to humans. They say that the consumption of ginger may not hurt the health of an individual but it can improve the health of an individual.
The study was published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences. Title of the article is "Beneficial effects of ginger Zingiber officinale Roscoe on obesity and metabolic syndrome: a review."
