Indoor Air Pollution Causes Respiratory Ailments
How to reduce indoor water pollution, air pollution,
mold infestation, and other indoor environmental pollutants that harm the
health of residential and workplace building residents and employees.
Ninety four percent (94%)
of all respiratory ailments
are caused by polluted air according to the American Medical Association,
which also reported that one-third of our national health bill is for causes directly
attributable to indoor air pollution.
The U.S. Government Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) warns people that "Most people are aware that outdoor air
pollution can damage their health but may not know that indoor air pollution can also have
significant effects. EPA studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor air
levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times, and occasion more than 100 times, higher than
outdoor levels. These levels of indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because it is
estimated that most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors. In recent years,
comparative risk studies performed by EPA and its Science Advisory Board (SAB) have
consistently ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public
By getting a
masters in public health, you can help people become more aware of air
pollutants and other toxins around us.
"All molds have the potential to cause health effects. Molds can produce allergens that
can trigger allergic reactions or even asthma attacks in people allergic to mold. Others
are known to produce potent toxins and/or irritants. Potential health concerns are an
important reason." The U.S. EPA,
What Causes Indoor Air Problems?
Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the
air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes.
Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not
bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor
sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home.
High temperature and humidity levels can also increase
concentrations of some pollutants.
MOLD PROBLEM SUMMARY OVERVIEW:
"Molds are microscopic fungi that comprise 25% of the earth's biomass.
They can be found almost anywhere and can grow on virtually any organic
substance as long as moisture and oxygen are present. Molds can grow on
wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. Moisture encourages mold
growth. People who are allergic to mold or whose asthma is triggered by
mold usually react to the spores, the reproductive bodies for molds. The
process by which these spores are released into the air becomes
intensified when moldy material is damaged or disturbed. Sometimes mold
can produce a toxic substance called mycotoxins, which also can cause
illness in sensitive populations, especially those with substantial
exposures, such as agricultural workers. It is impossible to eliminate all
mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can
be controlled indoors by controlling moisture. Many types of molds exist
and they all have the potential to cause health effects. Molds produce
allergens that can trigger allergic reactions or asthma attacks. Health
concerns are an important reason to prevent mold growth and to
remedy/clean up any existing indoor mold growth. The range of symptoms of
overexposure to mold include cough, congestion, runny nose, eye
irritation, and asthma symptoms. As is true of all
environmentally-related illnesses, the sensitivity and vulnerability of
the person will dictate the level of response to any given exposure."--American
Airborne mold spores spread
mold-based infectious mold-related diseases like asthma, chronic
sinusitis, & aspergilliosis. Stachybotrys
atra mold can cause nervous system symptoms, such as personality
changes, sleep disorders and memory loss.
