Corona and air pollution: How does nitrogen dioxide impact fatalities?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: April 26, 2020

Elevated levels of nitrogen dioxide in the air may be associated with a high number of deaths from COVID-19. A new study by Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) provides concrete data that back this assumption for the first time. The paper combines satellite data on air pollution and air currents with confirmed deaths related to COVID-19 and reveals that regions with permanently high levels of pollution have significantly more deaths than other regions.

Physically fit kids have beefier brain white matter than their less-fit peers

Relevance: 6%      Posted on: August 21, 2014

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — A new study of 9- and 10-year-olds finds that those who are more aerobically fit have more fibrous and compact white-matter tracts in the brain than their peers who are less fit. "White matter" describes the bundles of axons that carry nerve signals from one brain region to another. More compact white matter is associated with faster and more efficient nerve activity. The team reports its findings in the open-access journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. "Previous studies suggest that children with higher levels of aerobic fitness show greater brain volumes in gray-matter brain regions important for memory…
