Al Gore New Claim: Air Pollution Linked To Blood Vessel Damage In Healthy Young Adult: Researchers Discover Root Cause Of Blood Vessel Damage In Diabetes? So No Air Pollution Is Not Cause Of Blood Vessel Damage, It Diabetes Claim Debunked:
A key mechanism that appears to contribute to blood vessel damage in people with diabetes has been identified by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
Blood vessel problems are a common diabetes complication. Many of the nearly 26 million Americans with the disease face the prospect of amputations, heart attack, stroke and vision loss because of damaged vessels.
Reporting in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the Washington University researchers say studies in mice show that the damage appears to involve two enzymes, fatty acid synthase (FAS) and nitric oxide synthase (NOS), that interact in the cells that line blood vessel walls.
