The air people breathe while walking in the park, working in the garden or shopping downtown may be unhealthy enough to seriously spike their blood pressure, a new study suggests. Cardiovascular researchers at the Ohio State University Medical Center are the first to report a direct link between air pollution and its impact on high blood pressure, or hypertension. If the results from these animal studies hold up, this could be important for human health. "We now have even more compelling...

Could combustion without flames be used to build industrial gas turbines for power generation that are much more efficient than current models and produce almost no polluting emissions? Researchers in the Middle East provide a possible answer in the current issue of the Inderscience publication, International Journal of the Environment and Pollution.Mohamed Sassi of The Petroleum Institute in Abu Dabi (United Arab Emirates) and colleagues, Mohamed Hamdi and Hamaid Bentîcha,...

By England, Glenn C; Watson, John G; Chow, Judith C; Zielinska, Barbara; Et al ABSTRACT With the recent focus on fine particle matter (PM^sub 2.5^), new, self-consistent data are needed to characterize emissions from combustion sources. Such data are necessary for health assessment and air quality modeling. To address this need, emissions data for gas-fired combustors are presented here, using dilution sampling as the reference. The dilution method allows for collection of emitted...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Exposure to diesel exhaust fumes appears to interfere with the normal functioning of the body's blood vessels, European investigators report. "These important findings," they say, provide a potential mechanism that links air pollution to the development of blood clots and heart attack. Although the harmful effects of air pollution on cardiovascular illness and death are well recognized, the mechanisms involved have been unclear. Dr. Nicholas L. Mills,...

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Mud and sand at the bottom of Puget Sound is increasingly tainted by pollution from vehicle exhaust, not heavy industry, a state Department of Ecology study says. The research, which compiled 12 years of sediment test results, showed that toxic metals associated with industrial pollution declined while chemicals tied to vehicle exhaust increased. Margaret Dutch, an Ecology Department scientist who studies marine sediments, said the study is a warning about the...
