Health Issues – Urgent Need Of The Day !!

Many serious health issues are affecting the region where we live. Few of them are listed below.

 SWINE FLU

Novel H1N1 (referred to as “swine flu” early on) is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This virus is spreading from person-to-person worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something – such as a surface or object – with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

ASTHMA

 

 

 

Asthma is a common respiratory condition in adults and children that can be passed on genetically or developed throughout life. An asthma attack happens to a sufferer when the airways to the lungs become narrowed and inflamed. This inflammation of the airways is what causes the shortness of breath and can even cause too much mucous to be produced in the airways, making the attack more severe. Symptoms of Asthma : Loss of breath, wheezing, coughing, chest pain, etc.

 

POLLEN ALLERGY

Pollen is a tricky and powerful type of allergen and can easily become airborne and can be tracked to the indoors from the outdoors by people, animals or a simple gust of wind. Many people suffer from sneezing, coughing, itching, runny noses, and watering eyes when the pollen starts to fly. Each spring or summer, tiny particles are released from trees, weeds, and grasses. These particles are known as pollen. Symptoms of Hay Fever : Sneezing, clogged nose, Itching eyes, nose, and throat, Watering eyes, Conjunctivitis, Mental dullness, Fatigue, etc.

 

DUST ALLERGY
Dust mostly contains flakes of skin and dirt. It can also contain pet hair, pet dander and dust mites. These types of particles can become very harmful for residents when they are breathed in. At homes, dust settles down in furniture, carpets, curtains, bed linings, mattresses, etc.

 

 

 

PET ALLERGY

Cat allergies are one of the most frequent allergic reactions that many people deal with. The problem lies with the dander and their dried saliva. A dog's dander is actually the animal's dandruff from its fur and it usually comes out in larger particles.


BACTERIA AND VIRUS INFECTIONS

 


Colds, flu and other viruses are usually spread through micro organisms that become airborne. The microorganisms are then transmitted from one person to another by breathing in the air indoors that contains the contaminant. The spread of bacteria and viruses that are airborne can easily happen inside a home due to the confinement of air. Since homes are sealed completely tight for climate and safety purposes, the air that is contained inside a home cannot escape from the residence. If this home is contaminated with microscopic bacteria and microorganisms, they will simply re-circulate throughout the home because they have nowhere else to go. Young children and elderly people with a weaker immune system are more at risk to contract an illness from airborne microorganisms.

 

 

MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY (MCS)
This refers to a condition in which various symptoms reportedly appear after a person has been exposed to any of a wide range of chemicals. Commonly reported chemical triggers include petrol or diesel fuel, pesticides, fertilizers, industrial cleaning chemicals, bleach, fabric softeners, detergents, perfumes, lotion, nail polish, or skin care products. Common symptoms of MCS : Fatigue, asthma, rashes and headaches, weakness, nausea, gastrointestinal problems

 

CIGARETTE SMOKE

Indoor air pollution caused by the use of cigars is so hard to get rid of due to the behavior it develops when released into the air. Once smoke is released into a home, it sticks to walls and furniture. The toxins also can stick to carpet, bedding and light bulbs in the residence. Once the contaminants are stuck to these objects, they start to outgas their toxins. This outgasing of the pollutants is a constant exercise and the smoker will be providing the air with even more toxins while enjoying another cigar.
 

 

HEADACHES

 

For many people, headaches are mainly brought on by certain smells. When an odor is inhaled by a person, their nasal or respiratory system reacts to the smell. This irritation can cause chemicals to be released that can cause inflammation, nasal congestion and sneezing. The irritation of passageways and sinuses can often lead to headaches for many people. The best way to avoid these allergic reactions and headaches is to eliminate the particles and odors from the air that cause the inflammations to occur.

 

AIR POLLUTION FROM REFINERIES

Air pollution comes from many sources. The two main sources of pollutants in urban areas are transportation (predominantly automobiles) and fuel combustion in residential, commercial, and industrial factories and refineries. Major primary pollutants include sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), Vehicular exhaust, volatile organic compounds, ammonia, odors from garbage, sewage, and industrial processes, etc.
