Heart disease risk and air pollution
Heart disease risk and air pollution (January 1, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From France - A position paper written by experts from the European Society of Cardiology describes how air pollution is a important risk factor for heart disease. Published in the European Heart Journal, it calls for a decrease in fossil fuel usage, and also makes a number of recommendations for lifestyle modification for those with heart disease. Among these recommendations are that patients avoid areas of high automobile traffic, and consider home air filtration if living in areas with high air pollution. They also recommend trying to walk or cycle more, or exercise in parks, but only doing so away from major traffic areas.
