Air Pollution Can Harm Your Bones

Not Released

"Reducing emissions as a result of innovation in technologies or policy changes in emission standards of this modifiable risk factor might reduce the impact of air pollution on bone fracture and osteoporosis", Andrea Baccarelli from Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health in NY, wrote on the study.

Osteoporosis, which means "porous bones", happens when the body makes too little bone, loses too much bone, or both, which may result in weaker bones that can break from fall or even from sneezing and minor bumps.

The researchers, during the study evaluated the data of almost 9.2 million people across seven years in order to reach the findings.

According to an analysis from two independent studies, the more poor-quality air people breathe, the more damage they're making to their bones.

The findings showed that people who lived in areas with higher levels of PM2.5 and black carbon - a type of air pollution from vehicle exhaust - had lower levels of an important calcium and bone-related hormone, and greater decreases in bone mineral density than did those exposed to lower levels of the two pollutants. The researchers also said that once an older person experiences a fracture, they have a higher risk of mortality, and are also at increased risk for future fractures and chronic pain.

The researchers noted that while the study found an association between air pollution and bone problems, their research did not prove a direct causal relationship.

Researchers led by Andrea Baccarelli, the US's Chair of Environmental Health Sciences at the Columbia University, said, "Particulate matter, including PM2.5, is known to cause systemic oxidative damage and inflammation, which could accelerate bone loss and increase the risk of bone fractures in older individuals". Reports state numerous osteoporosis patients do not experience any symptoms until they get a bone fracture. For any further need, you can take notes.
