A recent news article reported that there were 35 nursery schools in the Greater Manchester area within proximity to roads breaking the legal pollution limits. This is a worrying thought on a number of levels. First of all, the investigation which was carried out by Greenpeace doesn’t mention anything about the other educational facilities like primary, infant and junior schools within these areas, nor park and recreational grounds. And it focused on one particular geographical location. How many other towns and cities have education and care home facilities near to these types of main roads.
Pollution can have major health repercussions on all types of people but the most vulnerable are children and the elderly, also pregnant women, allergy sufferers and those with respiratory health conditions. Isn’t it our job as adults not within the vulnerable category to help those less able than ourselves?!
The world health organisation has identified indoor air pollution as one of the biggest dangers to our health, with an estimated 4.3 million people a year die from the exposure to household air pollution, and with people spending up to 90% of their time indoors this is not good. And even more worryingly, the more energy efficient our offices and homes become the increased risk of even high pollutants being trapped in our indoor air, and in inadvertently inhaling said pollutants.
So, what exactly is classed as indoor air pollution;
- Asbestos, mineral dusts and fibres, Bacteria & viruses, Biological allergens, Black carbon Carbon monoxide (CO), Diesel exhaust, Insecticides, Lead, Metals, Methane, Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Ozone (O3), Particulate matter (PM), Polychlorinated, Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, Radon, Solvents & Formaldehyde, Sulphur dioxide (SO2), Tobacco Smoke and Volatile organic compounds (VOCs
