    The truth about indoor air quality is that most people don't know anything about the air they breathe in their homes. In the past decade an increasing number of studies are pointing to the same conclusion - that particulate matter is a serious health threat which can kill you in a variety of ways. In certain cases where indoor air contains high concentrations of PAHs, however, air could be a major contributing source. This could be the case if a person spent the day in an ETS environment (4–62 ng/day) or in microenvironments fitted with non-airtight stoves (30– ng/day) 7 or cooked food in the Chinese style (91– ng/day). 8Cited by:

Our health is improved and protected when we identify and reduce sources of indoor air pollutants. CARB's Indoor Air Quality and Personal Exposure Assessment Program sponsors and conducts research, develops green building standards and indoor air quality guidelines, regulates indoor air cleaners, and provides educational materials to the public.

      Although more research is needed, the simple takeaway is that neglecting the importance of indoor air quality and thermal conditions for work performance can be very costly.

There is undoubtedly a need for more high-quality research to be undertaken to investigate further the links between indoor air quality and health. At present, projects concerning indoor air receive only around one tenth of the funding allocated to those studying the health effects of outdoor pollution (Seltzer, ).Cited by:

While dated, it is still relevant as it describes sources of air pollution in the home and office, corrective strategies, and specific measures for reducing pollutant levels.

Indoor air quality, which is a function of outdoor and indoor air pollutants, thermal comfort, and sensory loads (odors, “freshness”), can affect the health of children and adults and may affect student learning and teacher productivity.

Pollutants are generated from many sources. Outdoor pollutants include ozone, which has been associated with absenteeism among students. 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 medical diagnosis, toxicology of indoor air pollutants, and air sampling and Edition: 1.

Indoor air quality is influenced by concentrations of outdoor air pollutants, indoor sources of pollution, characteristics of the building and the habits of the residents.

Indoor air pollution may arise from the use of open fires, unsafe fuels or combustion of. Question 2. To provide a basis for assessment of risks to human health from indoor air quality, and a sound scientific basis for the development and implementation of policies, the SCHER is asked to identify the adequacy of current information and data requirements for filling-in gaps on aspects such as exposure/effect and dose/response relationships, existing measurement standards and.
