Breathing in polluted air could potentially contribute to brain disorders, warns new study

Presenting their research, co-author of the study Professor Iseult Lynch said: “The data suggests that up to eight times the number of fine particles may reach the brain by traveling, via the bloodstream, from the lungs than pass directly via the nose – adding new evidence on the relationship between air pollution and detrimental effects of such particles on the brain.”Professor Lynch added: “The data suggests that up to eight times the number of fine particles may reach the brain by traveling from the lungs than pass directly via the nose – adding new evidence on the relationship between air pollution and detrimental effects of such particles on the brain.”Data from the University of Birmingham’s research add to a growing body of research linking air pollution to neurological harms, including dementia.
