Is the Middle East the most polluted region in the world?

According to the recent World Bank annual report on global environmental indicators, known as the Little Green Data Book, the UAE beat India and China to the top spot on ‘the most polluted’ list. The figure that grabbed the Middle Eastern nation’s attention was the volume of very small particulate matter in the air we breathe.
As per the study, the UAE air contains 80 micrograms of pollutants for each cubic meter, which is slightly higher than China’s at 73 micrograms and more than double India’s at 32. These pollutants are actually the tiny particles of sand, dust or chemicals that float around the air, mostly invisible to the naked eye. And certainly associated with the development of diseases such as cardiometabolic disease, risk of heart attack/ stroke, cancer and others.
Meanwhile, the UAE Ministry of Environment and Water claims the pollution level in the UAE is safe for residents. They have already taken significant steps to improve ambient air quality, outdoor and indoor. Worldwide, indoor air quality is on the rise as an urgent problem, but here, the local governments are very committed to solving the issue, starting with tests in residential buildings, nurseries, schools, universities, and health centers.
Toxic air pollutants are also common to the environment and are responsible for unintentional exposures that can lead to adverse health effects and potentially death. Toxicity is known to cause or is suspected of causing cancer, birth defects, reproduction problems, and many other serious illnesses. But not only the air, water and soil are also contaminated; sometimes even the food we consume: particularly fish, processed cheese products, fried and grilled foods, microwave popcorn, canned meals and many more manufactured goods.
Dangerous exposures to toxicity luckily can be prevented by recognizing and minimizing common sources of toxic elements in our diet, water, workplace, and homes. Laboratory testing is an important tool for detecting and managing toxic element exposure. Further detoxification can be used to minimize the impact of increased levels of toxins.
Preventive health screening programs
Eternity Medicine is one of a kind health institute in the region, well-known for their unique prevention screening programs. Using a FDA approved screening device in order to measure the key minerals, the heavy metals levels and oxidative stress, this technique allows detecting the potential threat in our body with noninvasive scanning procedures. It can so reveal the presence in the human body of Aluminum, Silver, Arsenic and several other heavy metals.
Additionally, it is also possible to set up an efficient program for detoxification. Firstly by eliminating the source of heavy metals which affect our body, and also by following detox program to reduce the presence of these metals in the body.
The residents are aware of peculiarity of the Middle Eastern region. The often sandstorms, lack of greens and permanent population growth as well as the increase of industrial areas; these are the facts that make us ask the question – What are we breathing in? And undoubtedly, that’s a strong question. Wandering about our health is a common thing, but doing nothing about it is the true problem.
“We regularly take our car to the dealer for service, to make sure the vehicle is in a good condition and safe for driving. But when it comes to our body we take our health for granted,” says Markus Giebel, the chairman of the new prestigious clinic in Dubai, Eternity Medicine. “We go to see the doctor only when something is wrong. And sometimes, unfortunately it turns out we are too late.”
