    Author(s): Alicia Harmon*

    Air pollution is a major health concern in urban areas, with harmful particles and gases present in the air causing a range of health problems. One of the most concerning health problems linked to air pollution is an increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). This research paper aims to investigate the relationship between air pollution exposure and CHD risk in urban areas. The paper presents a literature review of the existing studies on the topic, examining the types of air pollutants that are associated with CHD risk, the mechanisms through which they affect the cardiovascular system, and the evidence linking air pollution exposure to CHD risk. The paper concludes with recommendations for future research and policy interventions aimed at reducing air pollution exposure and mitigating the risk of CHD in urban areas... Read More»
