diseases of the head and heart

When a person is driving in a traffic jam as those living in Mexico City, Beijing, Sao Paulo and, especially, Bogota, health risks increase dramatically.
Some partial studies on trafficking in the capital indicate that an average citizen loses 72 minutes a day because of traffic jams. Of course, the range is from 30 minutes to four hours.
During this time people are not only required to remain still, in the same position and exposed to loud noises and polluting materials, also high levels of stress and anxiety.
Juan Vicente Conde, vice president of the Colombian Society of Occupational Medicine, insists that while all persons subject to traffic jams are affected, studies show that musculoskeletal problems have risen.
To get an idea of \u200b\u200bthe impact, just read the results of a study by the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany), published two years ago in 'Circulation'.
This showed that exposure to contaminated environments such as highways promotes hardening of the arteries and increases the risk of heart attacks.
The psychiatrist Rodrigo Córdoba, president of the Colombian Association of Scientific Societies, said the impact on people's emotional health may be greater, "although it is difficult to quantify, one can say that the emotional distress because of the traffic Heavy have increased. "
Although there are disputes among persons who are transported in private vehicles and those using mass transit, it is known that, in general, all body organs may be compromised when traffic jam conditions are suffering every day.
These conditions are much more severe in elderly or other health problems.
effects from head to foot Head
Persons subject to limit emotional situations explode because their levels of frustration tolerance decrease in the middle of traffic jams, this creates unexpected behaviors such as aggression, which is expressed orally or physical. Ears
The traffic jams generate noise above 65 decibels; exposed more than two hours a day to them raises the risk of progressive loss of hearing. It also generates auditory fatigue, which can cause headaches, irritability and increase in hormones such as adrenaline (which increases blood pressure and heart rate). Eyes
Contact with waste combustion and particulate matter cause eye irritation and eyestrain. The surge of adrenalin in the body, emotional stress can cause dilated pupils and, consequently, alter, at moments, the ability to focus visual. Nose

Daily exposure (and accumulated) to irritants like smoke, the particulate material and construction waste can trigger or exacerbate allergic problems such as rhinitis, leading to increased mucous secretion and itching.
neck and shoulder postures and stress increases muscle tension, this can cause spasms that occur with pain, abnormal posturing (to counteract the discomfort) and general malaise.
upper respiratory Inhaling airborne substances can irritate these pathways, especially the larynx, trachea and bronchi. This may manifest with dysphonia, cough, increased bronchial secretions and respiratory congestion.
lower airways and lungs in susceptible individuals (such as asthma), exposure to these pollutants can exacerbate the allergic process and cause obstruction of the bronchioles. The prolongation of this situation may complicate symptoms of pneumonia and infectious processes.
Heart Stress increases production of hormones that activate the cardiovascular system, raising heart rate and blood pressure. In people with premorbid conditions may trigger complications. In extreme cases can lead to arrhythmia or decompensation. Low back
fixed postures for a long time cause the muscles of the lumbar dorsal and having contractions, which are manifested by severe spasms and pain. This can exacerbate problems in the vertebrae, the intervertebral discs and nerve roots that emerge from them.
Kneeling hip and ankle joints that remain fixed for a long time may have contractures and contractures that occur with pain increases in some inflammatory processes, such as arthritis, or degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis. All are painful.
Veins The stillness of congestion, given the reduction of blood return, which may promote inflammation of the veins and blood clotting in them. Bladder
In people with infectious, mechanical, including incontinence and inflammatory, such as prostatitis (which require evacuation for short periods), stay in the same place and position becomes an unmanageable situation. The same occurs in people with incontinence or irritable bowel.
