According to a recent analysis, the number of cases of chronic kidney disease (CKD) due to global air pollution is significant.

According to a recent analysis, the number of cases of chronic kidney disease (CKD) due to global air pollution is significant.

Benjamin Bowe of VA Saint Louis Health Care System and his colleagues have previously described a link between increased airborne toxic dust and the risk of CKD.

In their latest study, researchers used global disease research methods to estimate the burden of CKD caused by global air pollution.

Specifically, the number of people with CKD related to airborne dust particles is about 10.7 million cases a year.

The burdens of CKD disease caused by air pollution include years of living with disability (meaning years of living with kidney disease in pollution conditions), losing survival (meaning death Renal disease due to kidney disease) shows that the burden of this disease varies geographically, and is higher in Central America and South Asia.
