Environmental pollution and noise affect the heart, lungs, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and natural resistance therapy

Dr. Muhammad Hafez Ibrahim

Research by the European Environment Agency showed that 12% of the European population are exposed to health risks due to street noise. It is expected to get worse in the future. The European Environment Agency has blamed prolonged noise exposure for 12 a thousand premature deaths and 48 A new case of ischemic heart disease. A report by the European Environment Agency showed that road traffic is the main source of noise pollution in Europe. Anyone who lives in a crowded street or near railways, metro lines or airports suffers from this problem well. Heavy traffic not only disturbs during the day, but can also affect a person’s sleep at night. According to the German “Focus-Artszuche” agency, in most European countries, high noise levels caused by heavy traffic, which are less than 48 decibels, cause disturbance to more than half of the urban population, which affects 113 million people in Europe. And if we add to the 80 million Europeans who are disturbed by the noise of traffic in the streets of cities to those affected by the noise of trains, who number 12 a million people and the noise of planes Which affects four million people and industrial noise that affects one million people, so one out of every five people living in Europe is equivalent to % affected by this noise pollution, according to

A healthy level 48 is the level of normal conversation, and it is a level that does not seem particularly high at first, but if it turns into a level Annoying permanent has potential health damage. It can lead to chronic stress and associated diseases, according to WHO studies. As noise, starting from 48 decibels, can cause health damage. In the study, the European Environment Agency blamed prolonged exposure to noise for 12 a thousand premature deaths and 30 One thousand new cases of ischemic heart disease, the most prominent of which is hypoxia in the blood. It is expected that these numbers will increase during the next few years due to the increased need for mobility and the growth of cities and urban areas in the world. The World Health Organization has also indicated that noise, starting from 55 decibels, can cause health damage and stress time. In which a person lives in the long term.

The German “Focus-Artszuche” authority stated that whoever is constantly exposed to loud sounds coming from the street in his home can try to protect himself by installing soundproof walls and soundproof windows if It is possible. But if this is not possible, the person can try to reduce the tension caused by that noise by listening to calm music or putting plugs in the ear, especially in the evening and night times. During the day, a person can escape from the noise of the streets by being in parks and other green spaces that are isolated from noise. There are cities that are taking measures to reduce noise levels by replacing street floors with stone or so-called interlocking tiles with a smoother asphalt floor or imposing a speed limit of 30 km / h . According to the European Environment Agency, this is not enough to achieve the European Union’s targets for reducing noise levels. The German “Focus-Artszuche” website and the experts of the German Traffic Club advise drivers to contribute to maintaining a low level of road noise by using tires that do not make noise, as well as quickly switching between different speeds and maintaining a sufficient distance with the vehicle in front of you in order to avoid unnecessary braking and acceleration, which leads to It helps reduce the noise level, but in the end, the best of all is the use of bicycles or walking.

Dr. Amir Khan, an Indian regenerative medicine specialist, explained that there are things in the house that negatively affect the heart and lungs. As aromatic sticks, i.e. incense, air fresheners, etc. negatively affect the heart and lungs. He points out that there are other household items that negatively affect the condition of the heart and lungs. These are deodorants, air fresheners, aerosols, hair sprays, cleaning powders, and degreasers in the kitchen and bathroom. Where these preparations contain volatile organic substances that irritate the respiratory system and can cause nausea, dizziness, and nerve damage and other body parts. And he stresses the need to have as many plants as possible in the rooms of the house, as plants purify the air and relax the eyes, and it is necessary to ventilate the house periodically and well.

Dr. Amir Khan warned of the hidden killer inside the house that causes cancer and threatens life the people. Where there is a desire to maintain a clean air environment inside the house, which is something that housewives are keen on permanently, so that none of the family members are exposed to health problems or any crises in the body, including lung diseases and strokes. Since indoor air quality is two to five times more likely to be polluted than outdoor air, and since people usually spend about 80% of their time indoors, this could be a big problem, which is confirmed by prevention centers Among the diseases and their American control, which made it clear that there are some other hidden substances inside the house that cause air pollution without the knowledge of the owners of the place, including wood-burning stoves, open fires, scented candles, and gas stoves. Experts reveal that inhaling fine particles from these tools harms the lungs and increases the incidence of lung cancer in the long term, in addition to eye and throat irritation and difficulty breathing.

A study from the United States of America and China explained to the National Health Authority Natural environment The weather determines human happiness. Where the recent study revealed that the weather greatly affects the mood and showed that the warmer the weather, the happier the person becomes. The study monitored this from the conditions of 1.6 million people in the United States and China. The researchers measured five levels of those included in the study, which are social nature, awareness, emotional stability, openness to experiences, and fun. The study found that those who grew up in places where the temperature exceeded 12 Celsius, obtained higher points in the aforementioned criteria, and outperformed those who lived in cooler areas. Where the study, conducted by the Natural Environmental Habits, questioned people from 48 a city in China and others from 12 a thousand places in the states United. The study showed that warm weather helps people get out of their homes and enjoy their days, but they are forced to stay indoors during the winter. The researchers believe that leaving the house helps people to establish friendships abroad, which does not happen when self-isolation takes place inside the home.

A recent study was conducted by Professor Dr. Mara Mather at the Leonard Davis College of Gerontology. University of Southern California has demonstrated a simple breathing trick that scientists say can lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. A team of scientists has shown that a simple breathing technique can help reduce Alzheimer’s disease. Where the study participants were asked to inhale for five seconds before exhaling and for another five seconds after doing this simple breathing exercise for 12 minutes twice a day over a period of four weeks . These short breathing sessions, which lasted minutes), had significant effects, as they were observed to increase the participants’ heart rate and the levels of amyloid-beta peptides in the bloodstream decreased significantly by The time the four weeks of the experiment have passed. These peptides have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease for many years, and experts believe they may be the cause of this devastating degenerative brain disease.

This study, conducted at the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, may be the first to discover a way in which adults, young and old can Both, lowering their levels of beta-amyloid, through breathing exercises lowered blood levels of these Alzheimer’s-related peptides. Our heart rate can be affected by the way we breathe which in turn can affect our nervous system and the way our brains produce and remove proteins. While awake and on the go, humans usually use the sympathetic nervous system, which is referred to Often referred to as the “fight or flight” system, it regulates a range of autonomic processes in the body including focusing attention and making memories. While the sympathetic nervous system is activated, there is no significant difference in the time between each heartbeat.

In contrast, when the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, heart rates increase during inhalation and decrease during exhalation. The parasympathetic nervous system is known as the “relax-digestive” system, meaning when the body is at rest, it helps us to stay calm, sleep well and digest food easily. In our younger years, our bodies can normally switch between these two systems easily, but this switch becomes more complex with age, as access to the parasympathetic nervous system becomes more difficult with age and heart rate changes.

The study showed That if a person does not enjoy physical fitness, then the change in heart rate will witness a significant decrease. A study conducted in 2020 using smart watches found that heart rate variability decreases by an average of 80% between the ages of twenty to sixty years of age, which could partly explain the sleep difficulties associated with by age. The sympathetic and parasympathetic systems influence the production and removal of Alzheimer’s-associated peptides and proteins, said Professor Dr Mara Mather, Director of the Laboratory of Emotion and Cognition at the University of Southern California. But this study showed how these physiological changes in aging contribute to the factors that make it favorable for Alzheimer’s disease.

The British National Health Authority recommended detoxing with some detox methods to cleanse the body naturally. Where the body can be cleansed of toxins, with colorful fruits and vegetables, and focus on light foods that promote cleansing of the intestines and the body. Although detoxing has no scientific definition, it is commonly practiced. Where there are ways to get rid of toxins in the body as follows:

= Getting rid of toxic substances from your environment: Before discharging the toxins in the body, you must be careful not to bring any toxins into the house to perform a detox treatment such as continuing There is no sense in smoking and during treatment you should stop smoking and manufactured products rich in harmful additives and avoid plastic containers and non-stick pans at home that can release unwanted compounds, and you can choose glass or stainless steel containers,.

= Reducing the intake of preserved and processed foods: Eating vegetables and fruits should represent 48% of the meals, as there are low-fat proteins in poultry and fish, and a few starches in whole grains and legumes. And when we have moderate activity, we don’t need to eat a lot of pasta or white bread because excess carbohydrates are stored as fat. Limit your intake of fatty red meat, refined grains, salt and white sugar.

= Get out into nature: Your detox treatment should be accompanied by nature walks; Away from the pressures and pollution of cities. Long walks in nature while breathing deeply contribute to the detoxification process. And to give yourself moments of relaxation in a hot bath and a sauna session, where lymphatic drainage massage can help the body to get rid of waste. It is rich in diuretic minerals and vitamins that contribute to the proper functioning of the organs. It also contains enzymes that promote digestion and antioxidants that neutralize free radicals caused by stress and pollution.

= Get a good night’s sleep: Be sure to go To bed at a regular time, and sleep for seven hours each night. The liver does not work the same way throughout the day, it is at night to clean itself. Therefore, it is important to respect the sleep-wake rhythm. In addition, lack of sleep leads to fatigue. Which increases the secretion of the hunger hormone, ghrelin, which leads to snacking and weight gain.

= Exercise: Physical activity promotes the entry of oxygen into the cells of the body and the proper functioning of blood circulation that removes waste. He recommends cardio exercises that increase heart strength and the liver’s ability to detoxify, such as running, swimming, and dancing. That we do it according to the abilities of each person and we can gradually increase its pace as the training works well in the cardio-respiratory system and depletion reserves

the mechanisms of fat and weight reduction.
