Air pollution can damage the brain like Alzheimer’s
MEXICO CITY: The effects of air pollution on the heart, lungs and other systems have been recognized, but for the first time, the most harmful effects have been seen on young people and children.
According to scientists, just as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other brain disorders accumulate harmful substances (plaque) inside the brain, air pollution is also playing the same role.
Although these effects have been observed in the minds of young people, it is not possible to say definitively what diseases it could lead to in the future.
In the case of motor neurons, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, plaques form in the brain, which are the main cause of the disease. So far we do not know the cause, but the only thing that is known is that the more severe the disease, the more plaque is present in the brain.
Currently, 90% of the world’s children are forced to breathe in unhealthy air. If airborne particles are harming their brains, they need immediate attention.
