( — June 2, 2017) Orlando, FL — The world has become more and more polluted due to the growing number of factories and industrial establishments that use, produce, and release hazardous substances. In cities, one of the most common environmental problems is air pollution. There are many health risk involved in being regularly exposed to polluted air, and they can range from less serious to severe.

Air pollution risk in the city life may potentially be reduced through fish oil supplementation. The less serious risks are those that are reversible and are neither debilitating nor life-threatening, and the more serious are otherwise.

“Fish oil contains healthy fat called omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for human body brain and functioning,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Among the symptoms of the health risks involved in being exposed to air pollution are skin rash, nausea, cough, throat irritation, dizziness, and headache. The serious conditions that urban dwellers may be susceptible to are nervous system damage, kidney and liver damage, miscarriages, and birth defects.

Individuals who live in cities are thought to be more prone to these conditions. According to experts, being better informed is one of the best ways to reduce the risk. City dwellers should take the measures necessary to protect themselves from environmental pollutants. Making lifestyle and dietary changes is thought to be one best ways to achieve and maintain protection.

Having a healthy diet and lifestyle is thought to be helpful in improving one’s immunity against ailments and the undesirable effects caused by pollution. A weak immune system is a quick target of a range of infections and diseases brought by air pollution.

Individuals who are exposed to pollution on a daily basis should see to it that their bodies are equipped with the defenses needed to combat the health threats. There are many ways believed to be effective in fighting air pollution, and one is through the use of fish oil supplements.

In a 2012 American study, the researchers had twenty-nine middle-aged and healthy adults as participants. They were made to take fish oil for four weeks and were exposed to unclean, polluted air for two hours. There were also participants who belonged to the placebo group.

It was found that those who took fish oil did not experience the negative effects of pollution such as those in the placebo group. The researchers suggest that the supplement has the potential to protect people against the undesirable effects of air pollution exposure.

Some of these undesirable consequences are adverse cardiac and lipid effects, which make those who live in cities a target. The omega-3 fatty acids are thought to be responsible for the protective therapeutic effects that fish oil supplements offer.
