Poor Air Quality Affects the Health of Your Whole Body
Air pollutants can cause up to stroke and heart attack. Read what latest research and interviews with esteemed doctors conclude about consequences of inhaling poor air quality.
The pulmonologist, Mark Abdo Arbex, the Brazilian Society of Thoracic Society, explains that these pollutants go through lungs, reach the alveoli and, finally, into the bloodstream. As a result, these fine particles produce inflammation throughout the body. Among the polluting gases, the common ones are ozone, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide. On days of intense sunlight, density of ozone is increased, which makes these days more harmful than others in terms of personal health. When the relative humidity is considered low, the danger increases. With low humidity, gases hang longer in the atmosphere, which results to a high concentration of pollutants.
Complications ranging from abortion to diseases
Those that suffer most from respiratory problems are the carriers of respiratory diseases such as asthma and bronchitis, most of who end up suffering from it. In addition, pollution has also been related with the increased occurrence of other cardiopulmonary diseases, such as cardiac arrhythmia, increase in seizures of hypertension, myocardial infarction, arteriosclerosis, angina, stroke and other ailments linked to reduced blood circulation.

The incidence of lung cancer also relates to the poor air quality. There are also more obscure consequences. Air pollution in large cities affects the amount of spontaneous abortion. About four thousand babies die each year in an average metropolitan city because of the poor quality of air inhaled by the mother.
"Abortion is because of decreased blood flow in the region of the uterus, due to the inflammation caused by particle pollution," explains Mark Arbex. Babies who survive may be born with low weight for the same reason. There is also the disfigurement. Claudio Mutti, a dermatologist, said in an interview, "breathing poor quality of air increases the production of free radicals in the body, which is an important factor in aging early. Polluted air also increases the risks of acne, as it clogs the pores and promotes the growth of bacteria. To reduce the production of free radicals, intake of antioxidants and vitamins C and E is encouraged, which can be obtained either in food or in food supplements."
