Problems of indoor air quality are recognized as important risk factors for human health in both low-income and middle- and high-income countries.

Indoor air is important also because populations spend a substantial fraction of time within buildings. In residences, day-care centres, retirement homes and other special environments. Indoor air quality is an important issue, because anything we breathe can potentially affect our health. To determine if there is a real health risk, well-designed scientifically valid studies must be performed.

Although much attention has focused on sick building syndrome, chemical sensitivities, and mycotoxicosis, there actually is very little evidence that these conditions have an adverse Cited by: Indoor Air Quality and Health Article (PDF Available) in International journal of environmental research and public health 14(11) November with 3, Reads How we measure 'reads'.

The intention of the book is to bring together a collection of contributions from specialists in the specific disciplines of indoor air quality, covering all points of view from various angles, from building design and building sciences, to health effects and Book Edition: 1. Introduction to Indoor Air Quality: A Self-Paced Learning Module.

The Indoor Air Quality Learning Module and its companion document, the Indoor Air Quality Reference Manual, provide an introduction to indoor air quality for environmental health professionals. Primary focus is on residential indoor air. Particle-bound PAHs are considered to be very hazardous to human health.

Benzo [ a ]pyrene (B [ a ]P) is often used as a marker for total exposure to carcinogenic PAHs, as the contribution of B [ a ]P to the total carcinogenic potential is high (in one study reported as being in the range 51–64%) (4).Cited by: The major area of public concern and government policy, in terms of the impact of air pollution on human health, continues to be outdoor air.

However, over the last two decades, indoor air quality (IAQ) has caused increasing concern due to the adverse effects that it may have on human by: 5.

The impact of air pollution on human health is currently of international concern. A comprehensive review of the subject is given in this volume, which complements the previous title covering air quality management.

Dealing with the common gaseous and particulate air pollutants, including chemical carcinogens, it reviews the epidemiological and exposure chamber study research as well as Reviews: 1. In spite of a dangerous indoor air disaster inside its own headquarters, the EPA has actually cut back its commitment to indoor air by all but eliminating its indoor air research program.

This is a truly bizarre and disturbing situation in light of public concern and serious scientific evidence that has come to light in the last 20 years.

Health. To better understand the impact of indoor air on our health, we need to consider the amount of air we breathe per day. An average person consumes 2 kg of food and water per day – but breathes in 15 kg of air per day (12 litres).

The health impact is thus clearly important (Nilsson, ). Abstract Background: Indoor air pollutants becoming a great concern for public health.

Indoor air pollution – such as from dampness and mould, chemicals and other biological agents – is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.

Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health from exposure to indoor air pollution may be greater than risks from outdoor pollution. In addition, people exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods are often those most susceptible to their effects.

What consumers need to know about the importance of indoor air quality and proving healthy air at home from GREENGUARD. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the American Lung Association, the World Health Organization, and other public health and environmental organizations view indoor air pollution as one of the greatest risks to human health.

The factors that affect the environments within buildings, the ways in which building characteristics influence the composition and function of indoor microbial communities, and the ways in which these microbial communities relate to human health and well-being are extraordinarily complex and can be explored only as a dynamic, interconnected.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the state of the air within a space. A space with good indoor air quality is one that is low in toxins, contaminants and odors. Good air quality possible when spaces are well ventilated (with outside air) and protected from pollutants brought into the space or by pollutants off-gassed within the space.

Indoor air pollution is increasingly a common problem in today’s modern living environment. Part of the reason is because people in Western industrialized cities spend 90% of their time indoors at home, work or in school. The other reason is because of the toxic chemicals found in everything from building materials to cleaning products.

In fact, scientific evidence [ ]. Air Quality, Atmosphere, and Health is a multidisciplinary journal which, by its very name, illustrates the broad range of work it publishes and which focuses on atmospheric consequences of human activities and their implications for human and ecological health.
