Blood clots in legs associated with air pollution

Air pollution heavy in small particles may cause blood clots in the legs, the same condition air travelers call "economy class syndrome" from immobility during flight, researchers said recently. Dr. Andrea Baccarelli of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston and colleagues said they found the link after looking at 870 people in Italy who had developed deep vein thrombosis between 1995 and 2005.

A: Often called ‘economy-class syndrome’, DVT, or deep-vein thrombosis, has been linked with long-haul flying and other travel which involves sitting still for long periods. It’s a condition where a blood clot occurs within a major vein, usually in the legs or pelvis. It’s not always dangerous, but poses a risk if the clot moves to the heart or lungs. Dehydration and sluggish circulation caused by immobility increase your chance of DVT. Other factors include: smoking, being over 40, taking the Pill, being overweight, recent surgery and genetic diseases.

Ambien Music: Forget the performers. Just close your eyes, lean back and sleep

If you’re prone to nodding off at concerts, we have the perfect event for you. On June 12, a group of topflight Japanese musicians – including violinist Iwao Furusawa, tenor Masafumi Akikawa and wispy-voiced female vocalist Aoi Teshima – will perform a series of works with the intention of sending the audience to sleep. The concert, to be held at the Tokyo International Forum, is a live rendition of music selected for a Japan Airlines in-flight audio relaxation channel. The pieces, which include Schubert’s Ave Maria and a Mozart Divertimento, were tested by a physician specialising in sleeping disorders and compiled into Good Sleep CD: Dreams – a hugely popular album in sleep-deprived, stressed-out Japan.
