Doctor Radu Țincu, harsh warning about the effects of toxic air in Sector 1: “Lung tissue loses its elasticity / A fibrous lung is reached”
Bucharesters from Sector 1 breathe an air
much more toxic due to waste. This is the conclusion reached by the experts of the National Agency for Environmental Protection. They decided to measure the air quality and found a concentration above the allowed limit for hydrogen sulfide.
The ATI doctor from Floreasca Hospital in Bucharest, Radu Țincu, explained in detail what are the negative effects that waste and toxic air have on health. The primary care physician in toxicology pointed out that “changes in cellular metabolism may occur.”
Radu Țincu, harsh warning: “Lung tissue loses its elasticity /
It reaches a fibrous lung ”
“If we talk about these low concentrations that we recorded, they become irritating to the airways, they become irritating to the eye mucosa, we have a burning sensation in the upper airways.
And people who have certain vulnerabilities, such as chronic lung disease or allergic respiratory disease, such as asthma, may experience exacerbations of underlying disease or even episodes of bronchospasm, ie difficult breathing.
If the amount continues to increase, because this garbage accumulates and
very high heat ferments them, we reach higher concentrations that will reach the lung alveoli, where they can cause lung inflammation, with the appearance of a toxic pulmonary edema.
And if the concentration continues to increase even more, this usually occurs in polluted industrial areas, changes in cellular metabolism may occur by blocking the functioning of the mitochondria and respiratory chain.
So we have a wide range of manifestations that are due to the presence of hydrogen sulfide.
That is why I believe that it is an element of the utmost importance
collecting this garbage in the next period. Because it is a hot period and also their storage in certain areas that are aerated and take into account the air currents, so that this hydrogen sulfide does not return to the city. Hydrogen sulfide is heavier than air and will stagnate at ground level for a longer period of time.
What we need to understand is that by breathing polluted air every day, the lung tissue loses its elasticity and from the very elastic qualities that the lung has, it reaches a fibrous lung, which is no longer able to carry out gas exchanges.
If we talk about children, the incidence of allergic respiratory diseases increases.
Children are increasingly prone to developing asthma if they live in polluted areas. And if we talk about the concentration of carbon monoxide, it turned out that all thought, learning and memory processes are affected among people living in areas where the concentration of carbon monoxide exceeds the allowed limits “, said Radu Țincu, according to Antenna 3.
