Childrens developing bodies are much more vulnerable than adults
The concentration of pollutants in air varies with its distance from the floor. It is important to be aware that many contaminants are heavier than air, so they concentrate closer to the floor—such as heavy metals and pesticides. Dust inside homes collects pesticide residues.
Many heavy toxic residues can also be tracked in on your shoes and on the paws of your pets, where infants and toddlers have direct contact with them for extended periods of time. There is less air mixing near the floor, even with a window open for ventilation, and this is precisely where your infant or toddler spends most of his time.
This means the air your children and toddlers breathe is more toxic than yours! Children are in their growth stage and growth means accelerated electrochemical stimulated structuring. So guess what happens when we throw powerful additional chemicals into the equation? Fact is that we will find out in ten twenty or thirty years and have no idea why it happened. So sensible approach is to use as few chemicals as possible and avoid strong smellin plastic products.
• Children breathe more often through their mouths instead of their noses, so particulates are not filtered out by nasal cilia in the upper respiratory tract. Young children are customarily mouth breathers.
Children have a higher ventilator rate. so receive proportionately larger doses of inhaled toxins. They typically are more active breathe faster, have a higher metabolism rate and the toxins enter the blood stream faster.
• Children’s immune systems are less mature than adults, so they are more prone to inflammatory and allergic reactions. They are also pummeled by dosing of immunizations and antibiotics. Thereby weakening their immune systems.
Children have a higher cumulative risk from toxins as every day new toxins are released on the market and built into our lives. In a few years no real timber will be used for construction. It will all be engineered factory made glue with bits of wood stuck together.
Recent studies have revealed that air pollution has more serious negative consequences for infants and children than we could have imagined. From fetus to teenager they are under attack. Other research indicates that various accepted body functions are declining as fast as two percent per year in some aspects of human performance.
Pollutants Can and Will Damage Your Baby’s Developing Brain
Prenatal exposure to airborne toxins is associated with genetic abnormalities at birth that may increase cancer risk, smaller newborn head size, lower birth weight, developmental delays, and a higher risk for childhood asthma.
These facts are in a study from 2009 which was published in pediatrics and the findings revealed are very disturbing. In New York City, 249 pregnant women were fitted with backpack air monitors in their last months of pregnancy. When their children turned 5, they were given IQ tests before they started school. The ones whose mothers were exposed to the most air pollution before birth scored 4 to 5 points lower in IQ, which is enough to impair school performance. This is no longer guesswork or supposition it is now a known fact.
The study proves that prenatal exposure to air pollution has detrimental effects on the average child’s developing brain, Other studies have confirmed a link to pesticides.
Now that you understand the facts of the matter and have the lists of pollutants from inside the house as well as suburban and city toxic accumulation it is important to take action every day for your own health and that of your children. So this website will explain a few more hazards and then help you avoid excess pollution and supply information on repairing the damage caused.
