Air Pollution is Disturbing People’s Health in UK

Air pollution is severely triggering the health of people especially the heart attack survivors in the country, says a new report of experts. Researchers actually studied records of more than 154,000 heart attack survivors. They carefully examined the fine airborne particulate matter (PM) and its effects upon the people's health. In their conclusions, experts have linked the reports of the patients to that of the average air pollution levels.

They have also mentioned in the report about some main sources of PM in the UK, which according to them are road traffic, industry emissions, and power generation too. Researchers claim to have noticed an increase of almost
20% in the death rate of all those people, whom they studied with every ten cubic meter increase in PM levels.

Explaining about the issue of air pollution level in UK, British Heart Foundation Senior Cardiac Nurse, Ms. Maureen Talbot, said that some parts of the UK have very high air pollution levels, which experts believe, are contributing majorly in affecting the health of people in the country.

"We're currently funding further research in this area, to establish how air pollution affects the blood vessels and so increase our knowledge about its effects on the heart", she said.
