American researchers report research letters in the environmental, that the University reported every year, around two million people die of the consequences of excessive air pollution of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (United States) with reference to the study that air pollution causes the death of 2.1 million people worldwide in one year alone. Particularly in South and East Asia, there are more and more deaths due to higher temperatures and heavily polluted air. In major cities such as Beijing, Singapore, Delhi, smog, which has become a major burden for many residents frequently arises. The so-called environmental performance index (EPI) (epi.yale.edu/epi2012/rankings), which is annually levied by the University of Yale, shows that Switzerland, followed by Latvia, Norway and Luxembourg has the lowest air pollution. Worst countries of Iraq, Uzbekistan and India cut off. Germany is ranked 11th by a total of 132 countries… In Europe alone around 420.00 died within a year, according to statistics the EU Environment Agency People in advance of the effects of particulate matter and a high concentration of ozone.

This particularly cars, agricultural and industrial produce large amounts of exhaust gases. The Environment Agency headquartered in Copenhagen reported that more than 90 percent of Europeans who live in large cities, are exposed dangerous emissions that endanger not only the health but also the ecosystem. Respiratory diseases are increasingly high air pollution can include respiratory problems, such as trigger asthma or heart and circulatory disease. Also, smallest particle of dust can enter until deep in the lungs and cause this way cancer. While higher asthma risk from air pollution is already occupied in children, new studies, which were funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, show now a higher potential of risk for adults.

Asthma is one of the most common respiratory infections and can be treated so far although doctors, a complete cure does not exist however. According to the study, 41 people on asthma became ill within a year almost 3000 investigated non-smokers who were exposed to a transport-related air pollution. An investigation of the London School of hygene shows also that up to six hours after inhaling gases from an increased heart attack risk. In the British medical journal declared the head of the investigation and epidemiologist Krishnan Bhaskaran, that air pollution accelerate heart attacks. During the investigation, the data were evaluated by nearly 80,000 heart attack patients in England and Wales. Julia Hamilton

Mentally fit the age by early compliance with nutritional findings this week is World Alzheimer’s day again. Professionals will gladly on the occasion to treatment options and, even more important to think of ways to avoid a wider public that day. Because everyone wants to be like old. But please healthy and fit. Unfortunately there are no free health and fitness at the age. You must do at an early stage, similar to the pension insurance, to actually enjoy the age.

In addition to physical fitness, hence the provision for the spiritual fitness should not be neglected. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Caldwell Esselstyn Jr.. Whether however in old age dementia completely to prevent is eludes given the current state of scientific of knowledge. It seems clear, however, that lifestyle and diet can affect the mental aging process positive and also negative. There are secured evidence that a healthy diet, as well as targeted supplementary specific micronutrients a have a positive impact on the mental fitness. So what can the individual do, to stay mentally fit in the age and vitality? Researchers from around the world have found repeatedly that certain micronutrients can protect the brain from functional limitations. So, brain researchers have found in an experimental study, that the essential trace element the brain efficiently can protect selenium loss of his intellectual, if it exists in the body sufficiently. The same applies for the purely plant-based Omega-3 – fatty acid ALA.

The risk is it exists, sufficiently in the blood so researchers, observed less in the age of dementia developing. For even more opinions, read materials from DE Shaw women. So is just at the age on a healthy diet with many micronutrients. This is often not the case but just in older people. They are often deficient with important life components such as vitamins, trace elements and building blocks of neurons, as the national consumption study has shown very impressive. Therefore the claim is entitled in the age and of course even earlier healthy and vitaminreich diet to make it come not only to a reduced supply.

Researchers achieve combating the senile dementia is practical achievements for preservation of mental fitness in a constantly aging society increasingly in the focus of interest of researchers. Progress achieved in maintaining mental fitness, are medically and economically invaluable for individuals and society. Based on the recognition that in the elderly significantly the supply situation with micronutrients is not optimal, partly even disastrous, researchers are trying to find ways to increase mental fitness and performance of people with improving the supply situation. Cardiologist may also support this cause. New evidence from experimental and clinical studies show that success can be achieved with certain micro-nutrients which contribute, causal and symptomatic to prevent the development of dementia or delay. Today, it is clear that the senile dementia and Alzheimer’s dementia structurally and functionally in parts of the brain have left traces. DE Shaw women brings even more insight to the discussion. Only partially the causes that can lead to dementia and the structural and functional changes are, however, understood. The oxidative stress in the brain, which is caused by a lack of supply of certain micro-nutrients known as antioxidants is one of several candidates.

So a team of researchers has to show now that oxidative stress leads to changes in the nerve endings and thus can interfere with the signal transmission between the nerve cells of the brain. This directly negatively affects the function of the brain and is one of the causes for the declining mental performance. If so, the oxidative stress that is causally responsible, then this development can be prevented, if enough antioxidants in the nerve cells of the brain available. And the researchers were able to show recently that in the experiment. Through the administration of vitamin E, a very potent antioxidant, were the changes in the nerve endings and the signal transmission remained unfettered. So combating oxidative stress, at least in the early stages seems to be a more promising ways of prevention and nutritional treatment of dementia.
