Here is information about how an electric field affects a person, and whether to stay for a long time under high-voltage lines where there is an electric field.
All human life is surrounded by natural atmospheric electric fields. The electric field itself most clearly manifests itself in a thunderstorm. Then the tension near the ground reaches 10 kilovolts per meter (kV / m). But even in cloudless weather, the atmospheric field has an average strength of 130 volts per meter. We are talking about the average because. what, like and. for example, solar activity, atmospheric electric field oscillates cyclically, reaching a maximum in certain periods. There are 22-year (two eleven-year), annual, 27-day and daily periods. This value also depends on the geographical position: the maximum electric field strength is at moderate latitudes, and the minimum is at the poles and at the equator. But all these changes are taken by the body for granted. Continue reading
Chronic bronchitis is the most common disease of the bronchopulmonary system, and at the same time the least studied, which is to some extent due to the presence of many factors predisposing to this ailment.
In the mechanism of development of bronchitis, many scientists assign a leading role to the infectious principle, since often chronic bronchitis is a consequence of untreated acute. However, most pulmonologists around the world consider smoking to be the main cause of the development of chronic bronchitis. It was established that inhalation of tobacco smoke causes an inflammatory process in the mucous membrane lining the bronchi from the inside, which leads to a violation of their structure and function.
