Pollutant Exposure May Raise the Risk for CV Hospitalization

I saw this in Medscape. It seems that if we don't eat, breathe or drink, we may be able to avoid AF.

BOSTON, MA ― Exposure to particulate matter with a diameter less than 10 µm (PM10) may increase CV-related hospitalizations, new research suggests[1].

The study of 6000 hospital records in Brescia, Italy showed that a mean increase of 1 µg/m3 of daily PM10 was linked to increased admissions for several conditions, including composite CV events, acute heart failure (HF), acute coronary syndromes (ACS), and atrial fibrillation (AF).

Diseases or Diesels???😀😀😀


I have called them diseasles for ten years or more because that are! Biggest con ever perpetrated on the public and the real reason for them is that you can't make enough petrol out of the available oil to power all the cars in the world.
