With the cooperation of an outstanding group of. We believe it was timely to study the entire physiopa­ thological entity of arterial pollution and we included all aspects of the disease in one single sweep.

There is accumulating evidence that air pollution could induce elevated blood pressure and potentiate hypertension. Acute elevations in the outdoor air pollution levels can trigger immediate or shortly delayed increases in arterial blood pressure.

Moreover, few studies suggest that short-term increases in the levels of particulate Cited by: 1. The best books on Pollution recommended by Rebecca Altman 'One of the themes that I hope shines through is the significance of the act of witnessing.

The major sources of air pollution are transportation engines, power and heat generation, industrial processes, and the burning of solid waste. The combustion of gasoline and other.

This two week course on Arterial Pollution covered the field of atherosclerosis as a disease entity, and includes its anatomical, physiopathological, epidemiologic, preventi- ve. “The obvious pollution occurring in many places - worst of all, in the planned societies- has encouraged the growth of the environmental movement, which, however, as shown in previous chapters, has an agenda that goes far beyond clean-up and beautification, far beyond the stewardship of nature that is commanded by ancient religious tradition.

Topics from the book Heart & Arterial Disease The author is Stephen Gislason MD Edition: Pages Major diseases originate from eating too much of the wrong food and damage is done to many organs simultaneously. The evidence does suggest that some interventions are beneficial in terms of preventing heart attacks and strokes and that disease progression can be halted by.

increase in air pollution was associated with a transient increase in arterial BP within the following hours or days. Moreover, short-term elevations in air pollution were associated with. An increased prevalence of arterial hypertension in the vicinity of Stockholm airport was reported in 29 With respect to the early stages of hypertension, a time-series study in the area surrounding Frankfurt Airport showed that, even in the physiological blood pressure range, a relationship existed between aircraft noise and early Author: Thomas Münzel, Mette Sørensen.

Pollution: Causes, Effects and Control is the fourth edition of a best-selling introductory level book dealing with chemical and radioactive pollution in its broadest sense. The scope of the book ranges from the sources of pollutants and their environmental behaviour, to their effects on human and non-human receptors, to the technologies and strategies available for fourth 5/5(2).

In this issue of European Cardiology Review, Münzel and Sørensen review the role of noise pollution in enhancing the risk of arterial hypertension in a scholarly and timely fashion. 10 The authors showcase a multitude of individual studies and meta-analyses that suggest a positive association between noise pollution and hypertension.

Ambient air pollution and cigarette smoke accelerate many of the same degenerative diseases as those of aging arteries and brains. Mechanisms include shared inflammatory changes in the fatty plaques of arteries and amyloid plaques of Alzheimer disease, as well as increased production of the amyloid β-peptide.
