Has Pollution Replaced Hypertension As The "silent Killer" ?


Recommended Posts

Hypertension has long been depicted in Medical Journalism as the "Silent Killer".

 

However, this dubious distinction is now being hotly contested by atmospheric pollution in today's mega-cities.

 

Pollution dumps more carcinogens in your system than there is soot in a chimney. It can precipitate emphysema, lung cancer and even hypertension itself.

 

However, most nations don't even think that a problem exists, and prefer to sideline this critical issue.

 

Is it time to enforce strict emission standards across the world to control this horrible problem ?  :vava:

Isn't it time you stopped making ridiculous assertions? 

 

Just about every nation tales atmospheric pollution of cities seriously.
