  • POLLUTION EXPOSURE

    • DNA & Chromosomal changes

      Chromosomal Structural Changes was also reported, which has been known to cause cancer. 40% of babies born with exposure have abnormal DNA

    • Smog effects

      Premature births, low birth weight, and infant
      mortality increase when smog. Asthma is also
      being studied as a possible outcome

    • Diesel & Airborne Mercury

      “Results showed that women who lived in the
      areas with the highest levels of diesel particulates
      or airborne mercury were twice as likely to have a
      child with autism”

    • Preterm babies

      During a strike at a factory in Orem in the 1980s the # of preterm babies declined. The # went back to “normal” when workers went back to work. These preterm babies are now age 27 and will offer a good insight into prenatal effects on overall health during a lifetime.

    • Pre-natal pollutant exposure

      Another study conducted found pre-natal exposure to pollutants caused decreased birth rate, and head circumference in African American births

    • Pollutant exposure results

      Pre-natal who were exposed to high amounts of pollution have also shown lower test scores as they age and slower cognitive abilities.

    • Further evidence

      Additional evidence even suggests that pre-natal exposure can lead to pre-mature birth, early infancy death, or birth defects

    • PAH Exposure

      PAH exposure in women has also been linked to higher rates in obesity by age 7

  • INCREASED RISK

    • Short Term Effects

      Air pollution can increase temporary respiratory symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, or shortness of breath. If your child has any of these symptoms, exposure to polluted air can make them worse.

    • Asthma

      Asthma, the most common chronic disorder in children, can be aggravated by air pollution. Generally researchers agree that air pollution can trigger asthma attacks and worsen asthma symptoms, but studies have not yet provided indisputable evidence that it can cause asthma to develop.

    • Development

      Early childhood is a critical period for the continued development and maturation of several biological systems such as the brain, lung, and immune system and air toxins can impair lung function and neurodevelopment

    • More time outside

      Children usually spend more time outside than adults. The typical adult, besides those who work outdoors, spends most of their time inside – at home, work, etc. In addition to being outside more often than adults, children are often outdoors when air pollution is at its highest.

    • Children breathe more air!

      “Due to their greater respiratory rates, children breathe a proportionately greater volume of air than adults. As a result, children inhale more pollutants per pound of body weight.”

    • Underdeveloped Lungs

      “Children’s physiological vulnerability to air pollution arises from their narrower airways and the fact that their lungs are still developing. Irritation caused by air pollutants that would produce only a slight response in an adult can result in potentially significant obstruction in the airways of a young child.”

  • Diseases and Illnesses

    • Shortens life span

      Current pollution levels are estimated to shorten the average persons life by two years (Comparable to smoking a pack of cigarettes a day)

    • Longterm exposure

      Long term exposure results in 24% increase in risks of cardiovascular events in the 65,000 women studies.

    • Increase in death

      76% increase in death from heart disease and 35% increased risk from stroke

    • 1k – 2k annual SLC deaths

      Along the Wasatch Front 1000 to 2000 people die each year from direct effects of air pollution

    • Cancer

      The World Health Organization has declared smoggy air a certified cancer agent. They have also classified particulate matter, a major component of outdoor air pollution, as carcinogenic (cancer-causing) to humans. Fine particles have been linked to effects such as: cardiac arrhythmia; heart attacks; pneumonia, asthma attacks; lung cancer and bronchitis

    • Greater Risk of Disease

      Type II diabetes, immune suppression, inflammatory bowel disease, several types of bacterial infections, lupus, impaired fertility, sleep apnea, obesity and suicide are all more common among populations exposed to greater levels of air pollution.

    • Heart and Brain Health

      Air pollution is associated with increased rates of strokes, heart attacks, rhythm disturbances and sudden death. In addition, air pollution is associated with impaired intellectual performance, and many different types of neurologic diseases.

  • Increased Risk

    • Unhealthful pollution index = Discomfort

      As the body gets physically weaker, so do all the other systems at work in the body. With the loss of physical vigor, hormone levels drop, healing takes longer, and the immune system will struggle with bacteria. These are part of the reason the unhealthful pollution index will cause discomfort for a young athlete, but seniors are advised to stay indoors.

    • Premature deaths

      Premature death from lung and heart disease is also common.

    • Heart attacks more likely

      “When air pollution levels are high, people are more likely to have a heart attack. Research shows that during periods of air pollution people with chronic lung and heart disease, such as asthma, cardiopulmonary disorder or heart failure, are especially at high risk for an exacerbation, or worsening, of their disease.”

    • Dont risk prolonged outdoor activity

      Those with multiple cardiac risk factors should limit prolonged outdoor activity when Pm2.5 is between 20-35. When Pm2.5 has breached 35, there should be no prolonged outdoor exertion by ANYONE!

    • Air pollution harmful

      Particulate air pollution is known to accelerate atherosclerosis and inflammation. Elderly with heart diseases are most at risk

    • Cystic Fibrosis Patient McCartin says:

      “My asthma flares up — it feels like I can’t take a deep breath,”

Why Should You Be Concerned About Indoor Air Quality?

In Utah, we often worry about the effects of seasonal inversions and accompanying high levels of outdoor air pollution on our families’ health. But what about the indoor air quality between the walls of our own homes? Some of our government’s Environmental Protection Agency’s statistics on the air we breathe indoors are sobering:

  • Indoor air pollution consistently ranks as one of the Top 5 risks to overall public health
  • Indoor air pollutants can be 2-5 times higher and even 100 times higher than outdoor levels
  • Poor indoor air quality aggravates children’s asthma symptoms, resulting in 10 million missed school days nationwide
  • Concentration, calculation abilities, and memory are all adversely affected by poor indoor air quality
  • Certain toxins contained in our indoor air may even cause cancer

What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?

Even the most meticulous housekeeper will not be able to prevent poor indoor air quality, and smoking indoors is not the main culprit either: there are toxins emitted from many common household furnishings that can cause a variety of problems. Here is a brief overview of some of the main causes of poor indoor air quality:

  • Finishers, sealers, adhesives and a wide range of fabrics contain benzene, toluene, formaldehyde as well as volatile organic compounds that are slowly emitted in gaseous form. Paint, flooring, furniture, rugs, clothing and other common items may be putting your family at risk.
  • Poor ventilation systems that do not circulate air properly are also great contributors to poor air quality. Dirty ducts, poorly-designed ducts, and lack of a good filtration system are huge problems.
  • Pet dander, dust, dirt and airborne allergens are constantly in the air even despite our best cleaning efforts. Careful cleaning and daily vacuuming will ease these problems, but they can never be gotten rid of entirely through our own hard work alone.
