Home Near a Main Road is a Host to Respiratory Problems

New York - Living close to a main road is quite a nuisance in terms of noise and pollution. Now, a study by Switzerland researchers has enabled enough reasons to stay// as far away from arterial roads as possible, because people living in proximity to them are likely to suffer from respiratory problems showing up as breathlessness and wheezing.

"These findings from a general population provide strong confirmation that living near busy streets leads to adverse respiratory health effects," revealed Lucy Bayer-Oglesby, of the University of Basel.

The research revealed that people who live within 20 meters of a congested road stood a 15 % chance of battling with phlegm in their airways and were 34% likely to suffer wheezing and breathing difficulties.

Congestion on arterial roads due to traffic, gravely affected the respiratory health for men in particular and even for those who had never smoked.
