Study says living in apartment buildings ups the risk of stroke & heart disease


The development of hypertension and some components of metabolic syndrome has been linked to long-term exposure to ambient air pollution and residential distance to green spaces & major roads which has been investigated by a research study. Some of these components are high triglyceride level, reduced high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, higher blood glucose, and obesity. These findings were done by researchers of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences.

Study methodology assessed the associations among people who lived in either private or multifamily houses. Both air pollution and living in apartment buildings may enhance the risk of developing dangerous conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Agn Brazien, lead author of the study published in the Journal of Public Health said that, “Our research results enable us to say that we should regulate as much as possible the living space for one person in multifamily houses, improve the noise insulation of apartments, and promote the development of green spaces in multifamily houses.”

The negative impact of traffic air pollutants was actually observed only in the participants who lived in multifamily buildings. As there is more traffic near the multifamily apartment buildings it has associated with the incidence of hypertension as well.
