Dr. William Rowe is the author of an editorial about space flight and lunar dust hypertension.
KESWICK, VA, August 13, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to honor William Rowe, MD, with inclusion in Who's Who in the World. An accomplished listee, Dr. Rowe celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
With more than 30 years of professional experience, Dr. Rowe excelled as an assistant clinical professor of medicine at the Medical University of Ohio at Toledo from 1962 to 1993. In addition to his primary role, he worked as the chief advisor of the committee on cardiac rehabilitation for the Northwest Ohio Heart Association from 1981 to 1983. Prior to this role, Dr. Rowe found success as the chair of medicine at Saint Vincent's Hospital from 1979 to 1983.
Dr. Rowe initially pursued an education at the University of Cincinnati, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in 1950. He continued his studies with the aforementioned school, earning a Doctor of Medicine in 1954. He subsequently enlisted in the United States Air Force, serving to the rank of captain from 1955 to 1957. A diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr. Rowe is a member of the National Space Society, and a fellow of the British Interplanetary Society and the American College of Nutrition.
A respected voice in his areas of expertise, Dr. Rowe has been affiliated with a number of professional organizations and is a former delegate citizen of the People to People ambassador program to China.
He is the author of an editorial about space flight and lunar dust hypertension which was distributed in a new release:
"With 25 years of research involving primarily the cardiovascular complications of spaceflight and more recently of the moon walkers, particularly Neil Armstrong on his historic mission and James Irwin (Apollo 15), extraordinary findings were discovered. Both had vascular complications, triggered by inhalation of deadly iron-laden dust. Author Dr. William J. Rowe has applied this information as to how this can be utilized for underlying mechanisms of hypertension on earth, triggered by iron-laden brake dust.
Based on his studies of the moon walkers, primarily those of Neil Armstrong and James Irwin, Dr. William J. Rowe, former assistant clinical professor of Medicine, Medical University of Ohio at Toledo, concluded that inhalation of highly toxic lunar iron-laden dust can contribute to extraordinary hypertension.
In an editorial, published recently in the Journal of Hypertension and Management, Dr. Rowe published that iron dust inhalation contributed to Armstrong's extraordinary diastolic blood pressure (160/135) on Earth return, consistent with impairment of cardiac function; his high adrenaline -heart failure during his lunar walk, undoubtedly played a role.
On the other hand Irwin, with a history of hypertension a month before his mission (145/110), returned with a bicycle stress test of 275/125 after only 3 minutes of exercise; furthermore on return, Irwin showed stress test - "blue finger nails" consistent with vascular injuries.
Having supervised over 5000 hospital based symptom-limited maximum treadmill stress tests, Dr. Rowe had never seen such extraordinary vascular complications, apparently triggered by highly toxic iron-laden dust and intensified by a magnesium deficiency invariably occurring with space flight and extremely common world-wide.
Since at least a third of the world's population has hypertension - with very recent studies showing that with present guidelines, among Americans, hypertension may actually exist in a half of the population, urban pollution problems must be vigorously addressed. Also, a European study has shown that 12 year old children may have hypertension from iron inhalation with often persistence of hypertension to adulthood.
Inhalation of brake iron dust may simulate the highly toxic lunar dust inhalation with at least 90 percent of brakes made with iron. In China, Dr. Rowe's experience of having seen not over 10 cars a day in Beijing in 1988 with no obvious pollution and his return to Beijing in 2011 with inability to see the street from his 9th. Floor hotel room is very disturbing.
Furthermore the toxicity of iron brakes is growing but in comparison with global warming, there isn't the necessity of waiting 50 years before determining how great the danger might be.
This concept was presented at the Innovate Biotech 2017, November 29, 30, Brisbane, Australia.
On Rowe's website homepage, Neil Armstrong's historical document is shown along with Irwin's "cyanotic nail beds."

Moreover, Dr. Rowe has written articles for a number of professional journals, including Acta Astronautica, Lancet, Circulation, and the International Journal of Impact Research.
Throughout his career, Dr. Rowe has been celebrated for his exemplary achievements in the field. He has received multiple awards and accolades for his contributions. Likewise, Dr. Rowe has been spotlighted in numerous editions of Who's Who in America, Who's Who in Medicine and Healthcare, Who's Who in Science and Engineering, and Who's Who in the World.
