Air pollution can be separated into outdoor and indoor air pollution. Both can increase the risk of cancer and diseases such as respiratory and heart diseases. What is outdoor air pollution? Outdoor air pollution is a mixture of tiny dust-like particles and substances in the air.   Outdoor pollution, much of it from vehicles, cau deaths a year in the UK but the number linked to indoor pollution is not known. However, indoor air pollution is estimated to have caused.

  Indoor levels can vary from 10% of the outdoor air to levels as high as 80% of the outdoor air. The Food and Drug Administration has set a limit of ppm of ozone in indoor air. In recent years, there have been numerous advertisements for ion generators that destroy harmful indoor air pollutants. -Green buildings aim to improve the indoor environmental quality through design, construction, and maintenance that minimize indoor air pollution -This ensures that fresh air is supplied and circulated, and that moisture content is managed to remove the threat of moisture-related problems such as mold.

Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances are introduced into Earth's s of air pollution include gases (such as ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, methane and chlorofluorocarbons), particulates (both organic and inorganic), and biological may cause diseases, allergies and even death to . 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 Cited by: 5.

The European School of Oncology came into existence to respond to a need for information, education and training in the field of the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. There are two main reasons why such an initiative was considered necessary.

Firstly, the teaching of oncology requires a rigorously. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: pages: illustrations, map ; 29 cm. Contents: Introduction; outdoor and indoor air pollution - an old and new problem; sources, nature and levels of air pollutants; sources, nature and levels of indoor air pollutants; environmental carcinogens - assessment of exposure and.

Introduction. im Freien und in geschlossenen Räumen air pollution air pollution: indoor and outdoor cancer epidemiology cancer prevention cancer risk carcinogenesis carcinogenicity.

in this series of Monographs on air pollution (Volume Ambient air pollution), the need to provide an overview and detailed background information on different aspects of air pollution and cancer took on renewed importance.

To that end, it was decided to update earlier draft manu - scripts that had been prepared based on pres. Indoor and outdoor air pollution is known to contribute to increased lung cancer incidence. This study is the first to address the contribution of home heating fuel and geographical course particulate matter (PM 10) concentrations to lung cancer rates in New Hampshire,Pearson correlation analysis and Geographically weighted regression were used to Cited by: 6.

DCEG research on the association between indoor air pollution and cancer has informed international regulatory actions on this exposure. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified indoor emissions from household combustion of coal as an established human carcinogen and emissions from high-temperature frying as a probable human.

What are indoor emissions from the household combustion of coal. Burning coal inside the home for the purposes of heating or cooking produces particulate and gas emissions that may contain a number of harmful chemicals, such as benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

How are people exposed to indoor emissions from the household. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified outdoor air pollution as a cancer-causing agent (carcinogen). In its evaluation, the IARC concluded that outdoor air pollution causes lung cancer and is also linked to an increased risk for bladder cancer.

For these reasons, some experts feel that more people suffer from the effects of indoor air pollution than outdoor pollution. ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS. Outdoor air pollution causes between 6 and 8 million premature deaths from lung cancer and other diseases each year.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified outdoor air pollution and the particulate matter in outdoor air pollution as known human carcinogens. Indoor Air Pollution Symptoms and Health Problems. Pollutants can cause a wide range of short-term and long-term health problems.

In the short term, exposure to high concentrations of indoor air pollution can cause eye irritation, headaches, nose and throat irritation, fatigue, and mes the symptoms resemble asthma, while others resemble cold symptoms.

Effects of Indoor Air Pollution on Health. The ill-effects of indoor air pollution result in about 2 million premature deaths per year, wherein 44% are due to pneumonia, 54% from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and 2% from lung cancer.() The most affected groups are women and younger children, as they spend maximum time at home.() The.

Breathing is essential for survival, but in some places the air quality poses significant health risks. Exposure to air pollution is linked to lung cancer, asthma attacks, cardiovascular damage.

For Teachers. Air Pollution and Illness (CK) - Provides reading, practice, and critical thinking, activities, and study guides on how indoor and outdoor air pollution affects human health.

Cleaning the Air (Teach Engineering) - This lesson provides students an opportunity to work as engineers to remove particulate matter from the air. For Teachers. Air Pollution and Illness (CK) - Provides reading, practice, and critical thinking, activities, and study guides on how indoor and outdoor air pollution affects human health.

In: Tomatis L. (eds) Indoor and Outdoor Air Pollution and Human Cancer. : Lorenzo Tomatis, Lawrence Fishbein. Indoor and outdoor air pollution both have strong links to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

A person who regularly breathes in air pollution can have a higher risk of getting COPD. If the person is a smoker, the risk of COPD is even higher.

For people who have COPD already, living in a place with air pollution can be very harmful. Where Does Outdoor Air Pollution Come From. Air pollution is the name for the mixture of harmful particles and gases in the air around us that we breathe.

Air pollution is produced by both human activity and naturally occurring events. Burning of fossil fuels by motor vehicles (including cars, buses and trucks) and power plants (includingFile Size: KB. Thus, the effects of outdoor air pollution on the indoor environment depend on ventilation rate and the mixing ratios and lifetimes of outdoor air pollutants.

For example, when outdoor O 3 is elevated, indoor cleaning using limonene may elevate SOAs, mainly organic nitrates, to 20 μg m −3 (Carslaw et al., ). Indoor air pollution involves exposures to particulates, carbon oxides, and other pollutants carried by indoor air or dust.

Examples include: Gases (carbon monoxide, radon, etc.) Household products and chemicals; Building materials (asbestos, formaldehyde, lead, etc.) Outdoor indoor allergens (cockroach and mouse dropping, etc.).Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality within and around buildings and is known to affect the health, comfort and well-being of building occupants.

Poor indoor air quality has been linked to sick building syndrome, reduced productivity and impaired learning in schools. IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds).

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 [ ].
