In this paper, we provide a survey of the current literature on the relationship between indoor air pollution, respiratory health and economic well-being.
We then discuss the available evidence on the effectiveness of popular policy prescriptions to reduce IAP within the household.
Submitted papers may be theoretical, interpretative or experimental.
It should be noted that Pollution is published in association with Iran Solid Waste Association (ISWA).
In this route, environmentalist disciplines are welcomed to contribute their knowledge and experience.
Journal of pollution publishes research articles (short and full papers) and reviews encompassed within the ever-increasing borders of environmental sciences.In addition to impacts on mortality, IAP may have long lasting effects on general health and well-being: early exposure to IAP during childhood may stifle lung development, suggesting that the cost of this pollution may continue later in life. Monitoring and Evaluation of Improved Cookstove Programs for Indoor Air Quality and Stove Performance. In fact, a growing literature indicates that environmental insults at early ages can have long lasting influences on human health and productivity (e.g., Almond 2006). Berkeley, CA: Indoor Air Pollution Group, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley, pp. Cooking and heating with solid fuels on open fires or on traditional stoves generates high levels of health-damaging pollutants, such as particulates and carbon monoxide. Air Quality and Early Life Mortality: Evidence from Indonesia’s Wildfires. As women are primarily responsible for cooking, and as children often spend time with their mothers while they are engaged in cooking activities, women and young children are disproportionately affected. These include but are not limited to Terrestrial and Aquatic Biology and Ecology, Geosciences, Atmospheric Chemistry, Environmental Microbiology/Bio-based Energy Sources, Phytoremediation and Ecosystem Restoration, Environmental Analyses and Monitoring, Assessment of Risks and Interactions of Pollutants in the Environment, Conservation Biology and Sustainable Agriculture, Impact of Chemicals/Pollutants on Human and Animal Health and Emerging pollutants.Accordingly, high quality research works falling within mentioned scopes are welcomed.A table provides information on the risk of health outcomes for exposure by study, encompassing research on six continents."There is extensive evidence on the many harms of air pollution on children's health," says Perera."Our paper presents these findings in a convenient fashion to support clean air and climate change policies that protect children's health." The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that more than 40 percent of the burden of environmentally related disease and about 90 percent of the burden of climate change is borne by children under five, although that age group constitutes only 10 percent of the global population.The direct health impacts in children of air pollution from fossil fuel combustion include adverse birth outcomes, impairment of cognitive and behavioral development, respiratory illness, and potentially childhood cancer.
