The polluted air can lead to Alzheimer's

A recently released study shows that it was discovered the presence of a large number of toxic particles in the human brain researchers have worried because it might be one of the causes of Alzheimer's disease. These toxic particles come from polluted air of cities and were discovered pieces of brain tissue taken from 37 people.

Concerns over possible links with Alzheimer's disease come from the results of other studies confirming that air pollution increases the risk of disease. However, research is just beginning and will last until he is proved or disproved this hypothesis.
The Guardian quoted Professor Barbara Maher of the Lancaster University and the leading research says that "the discovery should lead to a more careful examination of this important environmental risk factor for Alzheimer's disease.
We now have a reason to go further and to launch epidemiological and toxicity tests, because these particles multiply rapidly and people are exposed to them. "

The study was published in the National Academy of Sciences and procedures examined brain tissue from 37 people between the ages of 3 and 92 years, the UK and Mexico. The particles are of magnetite, an iron oxide, which is highly toxic and can create reactive oxygen species called free radicals. ( for more health tips visit )

Barbara Meher added that the presence of abnormally high amounts of metals in the brain is a key factor of this disease and the forms unusual oxide found in the brain are from material derived from combustion sources such as exhaust, industrial processes and power stations, or wherever they burn fuel.
