According to a recent study, apart from having an affect on physical health, air pollution can result to psychological disorders as well.
Children who are exposed to higher levels of air pollution while growing up have an increased risk of developing schizophrenia.
For people exposed to the lowest level of air pollution, the lifetime risk is just under two percent, while the lifetime risk for those exposed to the highest level of air pollution is approximately three percent.
This study also first of its kind to combine air pollution and genetics in relation to the risk of developing schizophrenia.
A team of astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has measured the universe's expansion rate using a technique that is completely independent of any previous method.
Knowing the precise value for how fast the universe expands is important for determining the age, size and fate of the cosmos.
Unravelling this mystery has been one of the greatest challenges in astrophysics in recent years. The new study adds evidence to the idea that new theories may be needed to explain what scientists are finding.
The team used Hubble to observe the light from six faraway quasars, the brilliant searchlights from gas orbiting supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies.
