For example, the main culprit of haze weather, inhalable particulate matter (PM10) and fine particulate matter (PM2.5), will cause chronic damage to the lungs.Previous studies have suggested that air pollution is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s, but there was no conclusive evidence.In their latest study, published in the Lancet Aging Health, a leading medical journal, a team from Peking University confirmed what previous studies had suspected by following Chinese elderly people for up to four years after the air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan was issued.They found that PM2.5 not only causes cognitive impairment and makes people over 65 more “stupid”, but also accelerates the cognitive aging of the elderly brain and makes them more “stupid”, while improving air quality can effectively improve the cognitive function of the elderly and make them more “intelligent”.PM2.5 is fine particulate matter that can travel through the bloodstream (alveoli) or directly into the brain through the nose, where it poisons the brain, causing cognitive impairment and increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, the researchers said.The study also found a decrease in household health spending and the prevalence of depressive symptoms after the air Pollution Action Plan was enacted, possibly suggesting a link between air pollution and depression.Air pollution affects not only the lungs and brain, but also the skin.Time to send reports before related research, the study found that air pollution can, increases the generation of free radicals and destroy the skin barrier, and the sensitivity of muscle has a close relationship, at the same time, the time to send also reported that a professor at the university of Dusseldorf in skin care four Suggestions: the first step is to clean, followed by moisturizing, the third is to prevent bask in, the last is to isolate.Follow us for more skin care and health tips.The original link: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanhl/article/PIIS2666-7568 (22), 00004-6 / fulltext# % 20
