We all know that air pollution has negative effects on people. Yesterday of scientists published in Nature is a new study specifically how it affects men’s brain health laid out. PM2 in research. The focus was on fine particulate matter, also known as 5 impurities. This item as carbon black or ‘soot’ we also know.
Do drugs like aspirin prevent the negative effects of air pollution?
Scientists, from white-skinned old men found that air pollution is associated with negative short-term effects on cognitive health. Results from the study showed that PM 2.5 pollution levels, which are not generally considered dangerous, can cause individuals to suffer cognitive decline due to short-term air pollution. Xu Gao, the head of the study, is the name of PM 2.5 does not have a safe zone explained.
Another interesting result was obtained in the study. Scientists like aspirin non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID)
Men using drugs known as from PM 2.5 pollution less affected than normal discovered. NSAIDs were thought to have no correlation with cognitive performance. Scientists are on the inflammatory response of NSAIDs from breathing in polluted air due to the new finding. a modifying effect they think they have.
Nevertheless, the findings are still at a preliminary level. is not accurate. Therefore, NSAIDs should not be seen as a way to protect from air pollution. Also, since the study only looked at white-skinned older men, the results were for other ethnic groups and women. may not be generalizable.
