Radioactive rocks can release a gas called radon when they decay, which can build up in the basements of buildings with serious effects on people's health each year, around 21, people die of lung cancer, due to radon gas in the United States. More detailed examples of chemical transformation and removal processes are presented in subsequent chapters that discuss the production and transport of specific pollutant classes.
In contrast, psychiatric disorders will induce aggression and antisocial behaviors. The gas is emitted when vehicles burn gasoline and when kerosene and wood stoves are used to heat homes.
Because air pollution kills quietly and relentlessly, and its finger is hard to detect on the trigger, people barely seem to notice—or care. Particulate matter also causes discoloration of buildings and other structures. The double bonds available in these fatty acids are unstable.
Abdominal pain, anemia, aggression, constipation, headaches, irritability, loss of concentration and memory, reduced sensations, and sleep disorders are the most common symptoms of Pb poisoning.
Contact with liquefied CO2 can cause frostbite.
Our geography and air pollution policies are such that it is not a major health risk here as it is in some other developing countries. Another method used to estimate background is to conduct a sensitivity simulation in a global model, in which the pollution sources that are not considered to be part of the background are inactivated for longer than the lifetime of the pollutants being studied.
Principally, green is defined as a color indicator for healthy air quality; while yellow, orange, red, purple, and maroon colors indicate as moderate, unhealthy for sensitive groups, unhealthy, very unhealthy, and hazardous air quality, respectively. Therefore, it shall be useful for the environmental and health professionals particularly policy makers, emergency physicians, and other clinicians who may be involved in air pollution and related diseases.
In some parts of the world, people still rely on burning woodfuel for their cooking and heating, and that produces indoor air pollution that can seriously harm their health solar cookers are one solution to that problem.
