Jul 25, 2018

Nowadays, more and more mothers are aware of the harm of air pollution to their babies. For this reason, many parents (especially the elderly) like to keep their babies at home for a long time, so that they don't have any chance of outdoor activities. In fact, the harm of indoor air pollution to infants and young children is also vigilant.

Although people's attention to air quality has been increasing in recent years, the problem of indoor air pollution and the serious harm caused by indoor air pollution to people's health are not enough. Many people think that only newly renovated houses will have pollution problems, but they are not.

On December 15, 2010, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a report entitled “Indoor Air Quality Guidelines,” which is the first time that WHO has published quantitative standards for indoor air toxic substances that have an impact on health. The report believes that indoor air pollution mainly comes from four aspects: building materials, home appliances, heating equipment and smoke generated during cooking.

According to research published by the World Health Organization and the US Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution levels are generally much higher than outdoor environmental pollution, usually 2 to 5 times, and in extreme cases more than 100 times.

And people spend 80% of their time indoors, especially the frequency of breathing of babies and children is twice that of adults, breathing more air than adults (calculated according to the amount of breath/weight ratio), so contact and inhalation are more Indoor pollutants. They are the special group that suffers the most from indoor air pollution.

In the long run, indoor pollution also has an impact on children's health. In communities where PM is heavily polluted, children's lungs develop more slowly and the efficiency of transporting air is not as high as that of children in the clean air community.
