Humans Are Fueling Global Warming By Just Breathing Study Claims
Scientists in the United Kingdom have mentioned a new research which says that breathing is also increasing the amount of gases which are causing global warming. This study has been published in the journal PLOS One. According to the study, when we breathe, methane and nitrous oxide dissolve in the atmosphere, which contributes 1% of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. That means man is warming the earth even through breathing.
The study's lead author, Dr Nicholas Cowan, who is from the Center for Ecology and Hydrology in Edinburgh, UK, says there is now evidence that breathing is also responsible for ruining the earth. And this cannot be ignored. Researchers have said that when humans breathe, oxygen goes in. It goes to the lungs and then reaches the blood from there. Whereas the carbon dioxide already present in the blood comes back here to the lungs and then we throw it out. Every human being emits carbon dioxide.
But in the new study, researchers have emphasized on methane and nitrous oxide. For which it has been said that both these gases are largely responsible for the greenhouse effect. But, since very small amounts of these enter the atmosphere through breathing, their emissions from humans have been ignored until now. But along with humans, other animals also emit methane and nitrous oxide, and thus these gases emitted by all organisms together can create a significant impact. Researchers conducted this analysis on 104 adult volunteers. In which he found that nitrous oxide was being released by every volunteer. But methane was being released by only 31 percent of the participants.
