A new study at Johns Hopkins has discovered a direct biological and molecular link between air pollution and chronic nasal symptoms. According to the CDC, over 29 million people in the United States, nearly 12 percent of all adults, suffer from chronic sinusitis with symptoms that include congestion, stuffy, runny noses, pain and sinus pressure. Dr. Murray Ramanathan, associate professor of otolaryngology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said in a press release, "We've identified a lot of evidence that breathing in dirty air directly causes a breakdown in the integrity of the sinus and nasal air passages in mice. Keeping this barrier intact is essential for protecting the cells in the tissues from irritation or infection from other sources, including pollen or germs."
