Each year in France, around 150,000 people are victims of a cerebrovascular accident or stroke. It is also the leading cause of acquired disability in adults. However, there are solutions to guard against this type of accident, here they are presented in video.

With nearly 400 deaths per day in France, the diseases cardiovascular regrouping themyocardial infarction, stroke, peripheral and hypertensive vascular diseases are the second leading cause of death, according to Public Health France. The study of risk factors individual non-modifiable (heredity, sex, age) or modifiable (tobacco, diet, sedentary lifestyle) is widely done. In France, there is a system for monitoring the causes of cardiovascular disease.
Cardiovascular diseases are favored by:

Moreover, the management of these risks would imply a community intervention which is difficult to deploy. Thanks to a meta-analysis, a group of German experts recently took stock on studies dealing with environmental factors such as noise, air pollution, light pollution and their contribution to the development of cardiovascular illnesses.

A multidisciplinary approach: the concept of exposome

The emerging notion of exposome allows the study of the lifetime effects of all environmental exposures on biochemical pathways and more generally, on health. This approach, which can only be multidisciplinary, integrates an individual’s exposome as a whole made up of the natural, personal and social environment strongly linked to the biochemical changes that can affect their health.

Factors favoring cardiovascular disease

All these environmental factors trigger a set of physiopathological signs oriented towards the notion of oxidative stress and inflammation which are factors known to accentuate the cardiovascular risk. These biological mechanisms are also triggered by behaviors at personal risk, it is difficult to separate things in studies of exposomes. Nevertheless, the authors of this meta-analysis propose measures to mitigate noise, atmospheric and light pollution and invite a urban planning intelligent to reduce the burden of stressors leading to cardiovascular health problems and morbidity important.
