Research into air quality has been linking many short-term and long-term health problems. This is an area where the real value of space flight research is clearly visible. Their research and others clearly displays that the following conditions can be caused or exacerbated by poor indoor air quality:
. Eye and skin irritations,
. Sore throat, colds and flu
- Asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems
• Memory loss, dizziness, fatigue and depression
It is even more concerning that other health effects from highly toxic airborne particles could show up years later, and specifically heart disease, respiratory disease, reproductive disorders, sterility and even cancer.
Particularly vulnerable to indoor pollutants are infants, elderly, and sick people who already suffer with heart and lung diseases, asthma, chemical sensitivities, or compromised immune systems. These are often the people who typically spend the most time indoors and in cars. Children like adults, are spending more time indoors than ever before. This website will detail all of the dangers over the next year and pay attention to recent studies which shine new light on the severity of the indoor air pollution problem.
