Research from Queen Mary University of London has shown once again the vital importance of getting real air pollution data at hyperlocal level, continuously, and in real time.
As the BBC reported:
“Regular exposure to even low levels of air pollution may cause changes to the heart similar to those in the early stages of heart failure, experts say.
A study of 4,000 people in the UK found those who lived by loud, busy roads had larger hearts on average than those living in less polluted areas.
This was despite the fact people in the study were exposed to pollution levels below the UK guidelines.”
AirSensa’s solution for hyperlocal monitoring can deliver the guidance needed to help people avoid as much air pollution as possible – and research like this is showing why it’s so important.
