Guinea pigs were exposed for up to 8 weeks to 0.5% CO2, 21% O2, and balance N2. Control groups of the same age were kept simultaneously in environmental chambers on air. A slight increase in PaCO2 and decrease in pH were observed at various periods of exposure to 0.5% CO2. After eight weeks of exposure, an increased kidney calcification, indicated by increased kidney calcium content, was found. Plasma calcium was significantly elevated at this point, apparently because of the release of calcium…

Could long-term exposure to elevated atmospheric CO2 cause kidney and cardiovascular failure?

As atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) increases, evidence demonstrates an associated rise in CO2 concentration in human blood. The increase in serum CO2 drives an increase in the activity of carbonic

Could long-term exposure to climate change levels of atmospheric CO2 cause kidney and cardiovascular failure?

As atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) increases, there is an associated rise in CO2 concentration in human blood. The increase in serum CO2 drives an increase in the activity of carbonic anhydrase; the

Mouse Lung Structure and Function after Long-Term Exposure to an Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Level Predicted by Climate Change Modeling

For the first time, this study shows that long-term exposure to environmentally relevant levels of CO2 can impact respiratory function in the mouse, and suggests that the early life period, when lungs are undergoing rapid growth and development, is particularly sensitive to CO2.

Carbon dioxide toxicity and climate change : a serious unapprehended risk for human health

As atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide continue to escalate and drive climate change, the issue of CO2 toxicity is not recognised as a global risk. The toxicity of CO2 for breathing has been well

Long-term carbon dioxide toxicity and climate change: a major unapprehended risk for human health .

There is now substantial evidence that permanent exposure to CO 2 levels predicted in the future, will have significant effects on humans, and it is likely that human health will be significantly affected in the near-future with the progressive severity dependant on CO 2 emissions.

The unapprehended major risks to human health associated with carbon dioxide breathing toxicity related to climate change.

Research is urgently required to clearly identify the severity and proximity of this risk, associated with the primary human function of breathing, primarily caused by the unabated burning of fossil fuels.

Direct human health risks of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide

Preliminary evidence indicates potential health risks at CO2 exposures as low as 1,000 ppm—a threshold that is already exceeded in many indoor environments with increased room occupancy and reduced building ventilation rates, and equivalent to some estimates for urban outdoor air concentrations before 2100.

Seasonal influence over serum and urine metabolic markers in submariners during prolonged patrols

There is some evidence that submersion provides beneficial conditions prone to fend off seasonal lactic acidosis and ionic homeostasis displayed potential seasonal impact over active ionic pumps in submariners.

Pollutions of Cooking Oil Fume and Health Risks

Cooking techniques and ingredients vary widely all over the world. Pollutant emissions are influenced by many factors in actual real-life kitchens, such as room arrangement, combustion devices, and

CO2-induced kidney calcification.

Findings indicate that once the kidney calcification process has started, kidney mineralization is independent of fluctuations in the blood calcium level, and small but consistent increases in ionized calcium during a 4-week exposure to 1% CO2 may have stimulated the parathyroid, causing an increasedBlood calcium level that was independent of the two calcium tides in the water associated with marked bone calcium loss.

Proliferation of pneumocyte II cells in prolonged exposure to 1% CO2.

Electron microscopic studies after 4 and 6 weeks of exposure to 1% CO2 showed ultrastructural changes of the lungs, consisting of marked increases in the size and number of pneumocyte II cells that were still present two weeks and to a lesser extent four weeks after recovery.
