Can Air Pollution cause irregular heart beats?
The answer seems to be yes.

Case report
Suspected association of ventricular arrhythmia with air pollution in a motorbike rider:
http://jmedicalcasereports.com/content/2/1/192

Cardiovascular effects in patrol officers are associated with fine particulate matter from brake wear and engine emissions.

You may also have air polution in your home, 50% more, open a window.
During expercise outdoors you may inhale particles 7-10 more than normal.

I would think that that would be true because if air pollution effects our breathing then it would to me naturally effect our hearts since the two are combined.  All i have to say is thank goodness its winter and we don't have to worry about the air as much and i always keep my windows part way open but good link you posted....

Living in Los Angeles one of the dirtiest areas around, I believe I am now honing in on MY cause and effect. Been scratching my head for over a year being 100% healthy with these dang things.

My hats off to the nurse who once looked at me funny after an ekg and said it looked like I had been working in a chemical plant or in a fire recently. I kinda scratched my head thinking how does she see that on this thing? No Doctor ever said that in any of my tests. Unfortunately I never thought much about it again, till just now...bingo !

I'm starting to put 2+2 together now. Hopefully it will equal 4 soon.
