|" Air pollution caused by coal-fired winter heating has slashed life expectancy in northern China by more than three years compared with the south Ali Marpet Buccaneers Jersey , according to a new study, underlining the urgency of Beijing’s efforts to tackle smog.
Researchers with the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC) said average lifespans north of the Huai river, where China supplies mostly coal-fired winter heat, were 3.1 years lower than in the south Donovan Smith Buccaneers Jersey , which is not covered by the state heating policy. EPIC’s study cites long-term smog exposure as a primary cause of the difference.
In a statement, EPIC said its study examined pollution and mortality data in 154 cities from 2004 to 2012, and found higher death rates were due entirely to increases in cardiorespiratory illnesses. EPIC didn’t give an absolute number for average life expectancy, but said its study was the first to focus on differences in air quality north and south of the Huai river.
“We know on highly polluted days more people die and more people are sick Noah Spence Buccaneers Jersey , but what this study helps to isolate are the consequences of long-run sustained exposure,” said Michael Greenstone, EPIC director and one of the report’s authors.
China is in the fourth year of a “war on pollution” designed to reverse the damage done by decades of untrammelled economic growth and allay concerns that hazardous smog and widespread water and soil contamination are causing hundreds of thousands of early deaths every year.
According to EPIC, if China were to comply with World Health Organization air quality standards Vernon Hargreaves III Buccaneers Jersey , its people could live 3.5 years longer on average.

EPIC said its study was able to isolate the impact of air pollution on health in northern China versus the south.
Every 10 micrograms per cubic meter of additional long-term exposure to smog particles cuts life expectancy by 0.6 years, the study found.
Average readings of PM2.5 pollution - breathable airborne particles of less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter - stood at 45 micrograms per cubic meter in China from January to July, with the northern Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region reaching 69 micrograms. The national standard is 35 micrograms.
Beijing has promised to impose tough industrial and traffic curbs this winter and is also in the process of shutting thousands of coal-fired boilers.
The government has acknowledged pollution is a health hazard but researchers have said more data was needed to understand its full effects, especially when it comes to the specific role it plays in diseases like lung cancer.
“We have enough evidence for the short-term effects of air pollution Chris Godwin Buccaneers Jersey , but for long-term health, it is far from sufficient,” said Kan Haidong, professor at the School of Public Health at Fudan University in Shanghai Justin Evans Buccaneers Jersey , adding that the government has recently commissioned new studies. Kan wasn’t involved in the EPIC work but has worked on his own pollution studies.
“In the next five years, there is going to be more and more evidence linking air pollution with health in China,” he said.
" Cardiologists are doctors that specialize in diagnosing and treating various illnesses that affect the heart and circulatory system. Patients that experience a symptoms that indicate a possible issue with the heart are referred to cardiologists in order to diagnose the problem and begin a treatment protocol.
Common symptoms that might indicate a heart related problem can include:

High blood pressure
Sweating without exertion
And this list is not exhaustive.
Patients that are referred to a cardiologist can expect to undergo a number of tests during the diagnostic period in order to find out why they are experiencing certain symptoms. These tests include:
Each of these tests are performed in an effort to diagnose potential issues with the heart. They are designed to test for the presence of certain hormones or chemicals in the blood, the electrical function of the heart O. J. Howard Buccaneers Jersey , the effectiveness of the heart to pump blood, whether or not there are any structural abnormalities and whether or not there is any plaque buildup in the arteries. Each of these tests are designed to tell cardiologists how well the heart is functioning and where potential problems may lie as well as what the most appropriate treatment protocol might be.
Patients in the Palm Beach area who have been referred to a cardiologist by their primary care physicians and are looking for a quality cardiology clinic should look no further than Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic.
