"Air pollution may take a toll not only on physical health, but mental well-being as well, two new studies suggest.
In one, researchers confirmed a long-studied connection between air pollution and cardiovascular health -- finding evidence that dirty air may help trigger strokes in vulnerable people.
The other study looked at a newer question: Could air pollution also affect mental health? The answer, it found, is "possibly." Among over 70,000 U.S. women in the study, those who lived in relatively polluted areas were more likely to report multiple anxiety symptoms."

The Program for Anxiety and Traumatic Stress Studies ("PATSS") is a specialized program within Weill Cornell Medical College's Department of Psychiatry. Led by JoAnn Difede, Ph.D., a pioneer in the field of anxiety disorders, PATSS offers a state of the art approach to patient care that brings innovation to tried-and-true therapeutic techniques. Our expertise lies in the treatment of trauma-related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety-related disorders, such as panic disorder and phobias, and mood-related disorders, such as depression. We conduct research on ways to improve the treatment of PTSD with those who have experienced trauma in everyday life and while serving in the military.View Thread
