NAGPUR: The World Health Organization (WHO), a specialized agency of the United Nations working on international public health, has rebuked Union environment minister Prakash Javadekar for stating that there is no link between air pollution and reduced lifespan. “We wish it didn’t kill people but unfortunately it does,” said WHO officials. The minister, while speaking in the Parliament on Friday, strongly stressed that there was no Indian study to prove the impact of air pollution on public health. Javadekar further told the house not to “create fear psychosis among people”. Speaking to TOI from the ongoing COP 25 meet in Madrid, WHO director (public health) Dr Maria Neira asserted that strong scientific evidences show exposure to pollution has a major impact on people’s health. “Independent of which methodology is used or what are the estimates, it is urgent to take action because the levels of air pollution in certain cities in India are very … [Read more...] about WHO to Javadekar: No study shows pollution spares Indians
New York: Researchers have found that a simple blood test can help identify people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who are at higher risk of cardiovascular problems because of a phenomenon called 'reverse dipping' that causes blood pressure to rise rather than lower during sleep. Most people experience lower blood pressure at night. The new study, published in the European Respiratory Journal suggests a potential cause for reverse dipping that may help patients with sleep apnea get the help they need before cardiovascular disease develops. "We can now identify those with OSA at the highest risk of cardiovascular problems in order to prevent them from developing additional complications," said David Gozal from the University of Missouri School of Medicine in the US. "We can treat those patients more aggressively to ensure they adhere to therapy and use their continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) properly," Gozal said. The researchers studied 46 patients diagnosed with … [Read more...] about People at risk of night-time high BP can be identified by blood test
