Air pollution verified as a cause of lung cancer

What many commuters choking on smog have long suspected has finally been scientifically affirmed: air pollution causes lung cancer.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has declared that air pollution is a carcinogen, alongside known dangers such as asbestos, tobacco and ultraviolet radiation. The decision came after a counsel by an expert panel organized by IARC, the cancer agency of the World Health Organization.

"The air most people breathe has become polluted with a complicated mixture of cancer-causing substances," said Kurt Straif, head of the IARC department that evaluates carcinogens. He said the agency now suspects pollution to be "the most important environmental carcinogen," ahead of second-hand cigarette and cigar smoke.

The risk to the individual is low, but Straif said the main sources of pollution are widespread, including transportation, power plants, and industrial and agricultural outflows.

Air pollution is a complex mixture that includes gases and particulate matter, and IARC said one of its primary risks is the fine particles that can be accumulated deep in the lungs.

"These are hard things for the separate to avoid," he said. "When I walk on a street where there's heavy pollution from diesel exhaust, I try to go a bit further away. So that's something you can do."

Exercise can equal drugs in treating heart disease

A constructive exercise project may be as good as or better than frequently prescribed drugs for some common cardiovascular ailments, a large meta-analysis has found.

Researchers evaluated 57 randomized trials testing the outcome on mortality of exercise and drugs in four prevention regimens: the secondary prevention of coronary heart disease, rehabilitation from stroke, treatment of heart failure and prevention of Type 2 diabetes. The review, published online in BMJ, involved more than 14,000 patients. The studies used different shorts of drugs - statins for the prevention of coronary heart disease, blood thinners for stroke, diuretics for heart failure and biguanides like Glucophage and Metaglip for forthcoming diabetes.

They found no difference in mortality between exercise and drug interventions in the secondary prevention of coronary heart disease or Type 2 diabetes. For stroke prevention, exercise programs were more effective than anticoagulants or anti-platelet medicines. And for treating heart failure, diuretic drugs were more efficient than exercise.

The lead author, Huseyin Naci, a fellow at Harvard Medical School, said that in most of the trials, patients were doing structured exercise programs in combination with drugs.

These findings do not expose that patients should go off their medications and start exercising instead.
