Household pollution refers to a series of maladjusted symptoms caused by the introduction of indoor pollution sources that can release harmful substances or the poor ventilation of indoor environment.
II. Hazards of household pollution
Statistics show that about 68% of human diseases are related to indoor pollution, and the harm of indoor environmental pollution to human body is multifaceted and diverse.
Chemical pollution mainly comes from upholstery, furniture, kitchenware, tableware, toys, cleaners, disinfectants, insecticide sprays, gas water heaters, cosmetics, some mosquito repellent incense, tobacco, kitchen fumes, soot, gas fuel, daily garbage and so on. They will emit volatile organic compounds such as toluene, xylene, ethyl acetate, toluene diethylcyanate, vinyl chloride, formaldehyde and inorganic compounds such as ammonia, carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide. These are harmful to human health.
Medical research has shown that harmful chemicals can cause irritation symptoms of upper respiratory tract, such as itchy trunk, blocked runny nose, sneezing, decreased sense of smell, burning sensation of throat or foreign body, and even cough and hoarseness. It is easy to induce inflammation and infection of lower respiratory tract, including trachea, bronchus and lung, which will affect the whole respiratory system. Especially when more than two kinds of chemicals such as aromatic hydrocarbons accumulate, they can cause toxic symptoms, not only damage the local mucosa, but also may appear the abnormal manifestations of Otorhinolaryngology, and then affect the whole body.
It mainly comes from the noise, electromagnetic radiation, static electricity and other pollution produced by household electrical equipment, such as television, recorder, sound, washing machine, refrigerator, computer, mobile phone, microwave oven, etc. Improper use of these electrical appliances can easily cause dizziness, tinnitus, hearing fatigue including noise deafness, sensorineural hearing loss, memory loss, inattention, palpitation, fatigue, insomnia and other autonomic nervous dysfunction and anemia.
It mainly comes from mites and other bacteria parasitic on carpets, sofas, bedding, clothes and plush toys, and pathogenic microorganisms and parasites in flowers, birds, fish and insects raised in families, cats, dogs and pets. Mites and fungi from room dust, carpets, feathers of birds and animals, pillows, bedding and other bedding are called allergens in medicine, which often cause allergic reactions in human body, the most common ones are allergic rhinitis and allergic skin diseases.
The radioactive elements radium, thorium, uranium and radon in some building materials, such as granite, shale, pumice, marble, cement, red brick and glazed tile. Indoor building and decoration materials, especially the radioactive materials in various “stone materials”, can affect the hematopoietic function of human body, induce the distortion of tissues and organs, and lead to leukemia. The continuous stimulation of high concentration of harmful chemicals and long-term exposure to radon radiation are one of the important causes of cancer.
Therefore, no matter from the perspective of children’s physical or intellectual development, the harm of indoor environment pollution to children’s intelligence cannot be ignored.
