Long-term use of air purifiers is good for cardiovascular
In the days of smog, many people choose to nest in a room with an air purifier. Is there any use of the air purifier?
In 2015, a study published by JA Haidong of the School of Public Health of Fudan University in JACC showed that the use of air purifiers can improve heart and lung function in cities with severe pollution in China.
Recently, a randomized, cross-intervention study from Taiwan has confirmed that long-term application of air purifiers is conducive to cardiovascular health.
The study selected 200 housewives and randomly installed a real air purifier (air purifier intervention) or a fake air purifier (control intervention) in their room. After 1 year of intervention, the two groups of housewives exchanged interventions continuously. 6 home visits per year for 2 years.
The results showed that housewife was exposed to higher PM2.5 and volatile organic compounds when exposed to control, and their blood pressure and 8-hydroxy-2′-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) levels were significantly higher than in air. The purifier is the expected housewife. This suggests that air pollution is associated with systemic inflammation, oxidative stress, and elevated blood pressure.
When the air purifier was intervened in PM2.5 mode for 1 year, the systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and blood high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and 8-OHdG levels of housewives decreased by 3.75%, 2.66%, 4.58% and 2.17%, respectively. When the material model was intervened for 1 year, the above indicators were reduced by 2.84%, 2.29%, 3.06% and 1.38%.
The systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and blood high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and 8-OHdG levels were increased by 3.01%, 2.14%, 5.76% and 4.35%, respectively.
The researchers pointed out that it takes a long time to improve the air quality around the world. For the general population and the weaker people, the use of air purifiers is a simple, practical and burdensome way to reduce indoor air pollution and improve cardiovascular health. Affordable measures.
They believe that ‘this measure will ultimately bring significant public health benefits, such as reducing premature death and medical costs caused by air pollution.’
