Chemistry has been the latest topic to get a new scientific twist in the war over chemtrails, with researchers at MIT and UC Berkeley studying the effect of the aerosols and how they affect the environment.
A study in the journal Environmental Research Letters found that people exposed to particulates in the air over the past year were about twice as likely to have asthma, while the air pollution they breathed was significantly more likely to cause heart disease.
Chemtrails are a form of pollution that are created when people exhale smoke, dust, and other particles from airplanes and planes that land.
They have been blamed for disrupting crop production and the production of chemicals such as pesticides, and are also being blamed for causing allergies, allergies to foods, and a host of other health problems.
The new research by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and UC Davis focused on the role of airborne particles that mimic aerosols that are naturally found in the atmosphere.
“What we see here is that there are a lot of molecules that are different from the ones you’re familiar with, like carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, methane, ammonia, and carbon monoxide,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Christopher Schmitz, a professor in MIT’s Department of Chemistry.
“This is because the molecules are different.”
Schmitz’s team looked at how the different molecules interacted with one another and with the body.
“The way we can think about it is that the aerosol is a molecule, and the particulate is a mixture of these molecules,” SchmitZ said.
“So the particles are very similar in the way they interact with the air.”
They also looked at what the particles do when they get to the lungs, and how this affects the body’s immune system.
“We found that the particles can cause an increase in inflammatory cytokines that are produced in the immune system,” he said.
This means that even if you’re not exposed to the particles themselves, the increased production of these cytokines may cause inflammation in your body.
SchmitZ says that the study does not prove that the particulates cause inflammation.
However, the study indicates that people who live in areas with the most pollution exposure were about three times more likely than those living in areas without pollution to have respiratory problems.
Researchers also found that more particulate matter is produced in areas where there are more people, and that more people living in these areas also have more asthma.
“In the context of a geoengineering program, there’s really no way to control this,” SchmittZ said, “but we need to be careful in the general sense of how much this is affecting us.”
This new research was done using the MIT/UC Berkeley Atmospheric and Oceanic Chemistry Observatory, which measures particulate particle concentrations and the effects they have on the atmosphere and on human health.
The researchers also used data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service, which tracks food emissions.
The research was funded by the National Science Foundation.
