If You Have These on Your Street, You Might Live Longer

If You Have These on Your Street, You Might Live Longer A new study out of Toronto suggests that a lack of trees in a neighborhood is one of the factors that might increase mortality rates for residents. 

Now, new research shows that air pollution has significant effects for another (and just as important, in my opinion) component of skin care: Our scalps. It makes sense, as air pollution is a form of oxidative stress, which research shows typically leads to hair aging (and hair loss , as a result).

"While the link between air pollution and serious diseases such as cancer, COPD and CVD are well established there is little to no research “Our research explains the mode of action of air pollutants on human follicle dermal papilla cells, showing how the most common air pollutants lead to hair loss .”

New research has uncovered another negative effect of air pollution on our health, finding that exposure to common air pollutants could cause hair loss.

Carried out by researchers at the Future Science Research Centre in the Republic of Korea, the new study looked at whether air pollution is linked to hair loss by exposing cells taken from the base of hair follicles on the human scalp to various concentrations of particulate matter (PM), which is a mixture of solid particles and droplets found in the air.

The researchers exposed the cells to a type of PM known as PM10, which are particles with a diameter of 10 micrometers or smaller. PM10 is produced by burning fossil fuels, including petrol, diesel and solid fuels such as coal, oil and biomass, from car and other vehicle exhausts, power plants and industrial emissions. Another source of PM10 is industrial activities such as building and mining and manufacturing building materials like cement, ceramics and bricks.

Air Pollution May Make You Bipolar, Depressed

Air Pollution May Make You Bipolar, Depressed A new study suggests that long-term exposure to air pollution could contribute to depression, bipolar disorder and other neurological disorders.

The study also revealed that the levels of three other proteins (cyclin D1, cyclin E and CDK2), which are responsible for hair growth and hair Our research explains the mode of action of air pollutants on human follicle dermal papilla cells, showing how the most common air pollutants lead to hair loss ".

The findings, presented on Wednesday at the 28th EADV Congress in Madrid, showed for the first time that exposure to PM10 particulate appeared to decrease levels of β-catenin, the protein responsible for hair growth and morphogenesis, which is the development of hair follicles.

The researchers also found the exposure to PM10 was linked to reduced levels of three other proteins (cyclin D1, cyclin E and CDK2), which are responsible for hair growth and hair retention. This association was also found to be dose dependent, meaning that the greater the level of pollutant, the greater the decrease in proteins.

PM10 has already been linked to various serious health conditions such as heart and lung disease, cancer and respiratory problems, however the effect of pollution on the skin and hair is not well known.

Air pollution reaches placenta during pregnancy: study

Air pollution reaches placenta during pregnancy: study Air pollution has the potential to travel from a pregnant woman's lungs to the fetal side of the placenta, according to a new study.Researchers at Hasselt University in Belgium in a study reported in Nature Communications found sootlike black carbon, a type of particle pollutant, on placentas donated by new mothers. The placenta is a temporary organ that acts as a natural barrier between a mother and the fetus during pregnancy.The study

In total, ambient air pollution is estimated to kill 4.2 million people every year, but the effects on the skin and hair are not well known. Our research explains the mode of action of air pollutants on human follicle dermal papilla cells, showing how the most common air pollutants lead to hair loss ."

Air pollution could cause hair loss , according to a study that tested the effect of dust and fuel particles on human scalp cells. Researchers found that exposure to common pollutants reduced the levels of four proteins responsible for hair growth and hair retention. It also showed that the effect

Lead researcher Hyuk Chul Kwon commented on the findings saying, "While the link between air pollution and serious diseases such as cancer, COPD and CVD are well established, there is little to no research on the effect of particulate matter exposure on human skin and hair in particular. Our research explains the mode of action of air pollutants on human follicle dermal papilla cells, showing how the most common air pollutants lead to hair loss."

Gallery: 20 reasons your hair is thinning (Mom.com)

a man and a woman taking a selfie: Hair loss in women is more common than we talk about. Some experts say 1 in 3 women will experience some form of hair loss over their lifetime.
