Air pollution causes millions of CKD cases globally each year
Dr KK Aggarwal
The estimated global burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD) attributable to air pollution (fine particulate matter (PM) less than 2.5 µm) is significant, amounting to more than 10.7 million cases per year.
 
The researchers used the Global Burden of Disease study methodologies to estimate the burden of CKD attributable to air pollution. Epidemiologic measures of the burden of CKD attributable to air pollution included years living with disability (YLD, meaning years living with kidney disease), years of life lost (YLL, meaning early death attributable to kidney disease), and disability-adjusted life years (DALY, a measure that combines the burden of living with the disease and the early death caused by the disease).
 
· The global annual burden of incident CKD attributable to high PM2.5 levels was 10,784,514 (95% Uncertainty Interval: 7,821,109-13,857,623).
· YLD, YLL, and DALYs of CKD attributable to high PM2.5 were 2,185,317 (1,418,442-

Dr K K Aggarwal speaks on Quantum Physics and Mental Health at the 21st World Congress on Mental Health
Understanding how particle duality works and balancing this can help in treating depression and other such mental disorders
 
New Delhi, 6th November 2017: As per a recent report, about 7.5% Indians suffer from major or minor mental disorders requiring expert intervention. About 56 million Indians have depression and another 38 million Indians suffer from anxiety disorders. At a recent event, organized by the World Federation of Mental Health, called the 21st World Congress on Mental Health, Dr K K Aggarwal, National President, IMA delivered an insightful address on Quantum Physics and Mental Health. IMA was a supporter to the event.
 
Dr Aggarwal’s session focused on how quantum physics explains that the mechanism of depression and anxiety can be an imbalance between understanding the way particle duality functions. Balancing this can further help in treating depression and other such mental disorders.The parasympathetic nervous system plays a vital role in maintaining both mental and physical health by helping the body to calm down from stress reactions that elevate blood pressure, dilate the pupils, and divert energy from other body processes to fighting or fleeing.
