Picture: uRADMonitor fights pollution to improve our health
VOC or volatile organic compounds are a class of substances that evaporate at room temperature. Being different substances may be responsible for a broad category of disorders, including respiratory problems, allergic or weakening immunity in children. Some VOC ‘s are responsible for the formation of smog, irritation of eyes, nose and throat, headaches and concentration problems. In extreme circumstances, more severe complications can occur, such as damage to liver, kidney and central nervous system or cancer [1]
Particulate matter PM2.5 refers to small particles with a diameter of up to 2.5 microns. These particles can penetrate deep into the lungs , causing allergies, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases [2]
Formaldehyde is a toxic colorless gas with a pungent smell, that results from the burning of carbon based materials. It can be found in forest fires, in automobile exhaust and cigarette smoke. It is an allergenic and a known carcinogenic compound that can cause serious health effects, depending on concentration and exposure. Even in tiny quantities just above 0.1ppm it can irritate the eyes and nose, and can worsen asthma symptoms [3]
Carbon dioxide is a gas heavier than air. In small quantities of up to 5000ppm (0.5% ) can cause headaches, lethargy, slowing of intellectual ability, irritability, sleep disturbance. In larger quantities can cause dizziness, loss of sight, hearing or knowledge. The fresh air contains between 360ppm and 410 ppm of CO2 [4]
Ozone can cause the muscles in the airways to constrict, trapping air in the alveoli. This leads to wheezing and shortness of breath. Long-term exposure to ozone is linked to aggravation of asthma, and is likely to be one of many causes of asthma development. Long-term exposures to higher concentrations of ozone may also be linked to permanent lung damage, such as abnormal lung development in children. [5]
Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is the most common and often discussed health effect, but research has shown that exposure to constant or high levels of noise can cause countless adverse health affects. [6]

Carbon dioxide is a gas heavier than air. In small quantities of up to 5000ppm (0.5% ) can cause headaches, lethargy, slowing of intellectual ability, irritability, sleep disturbance. In larger quantities can cause dizziness, loss of sight, hearing or knowledge. The fresh air contains between 360ppm and 410 ppm of CO2 [1]
Carbon Dioxide is a contributing factor to the Sick building syndrome (SBS), a medical condition where people in a building suffer from symptoms of illness or feel unwell for no apparent reason. The symptoms tend to increase in severity with the time people spend in the building, and improve over time or even disappear when people are away from the building. The main identifying observation is an increased incidence of complaints of symptoms such as headache, eye, nose, and throat irritation, fatigue, and dizziness and nausea. These symptoms appear to be linked to time spent in a building, though no specific illness or cause can be identified. A 1984 World Health Organization (WHO) report suggested up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be subject of complaints related to poor indoor air quality.

In homes and offices:
A 100 ppm increase in indoor CO2 concentration was significantly associated with headache (..). Office workers exposed to indoor CO2 concentrations higher than 800 ppm reported a significant increase in eye irritation and upper respiratory symptoms . A 100 ppm increase in dCO2 in the range from 467 to 2800 ppm in indoor CO2 was significantly associated with dry throat, tiredness, and dizziness (417 participants from 87 offices) (Lu et al., 2015). A 100 ppm increase in CO2 concentration (range, 549–1318 ppm) was positively correlated with non-specific symptoms including headache and dizziness (107 participants from 11 offices) although the correlation was not significant (Azuma et al., 2018).
Twenty-two participants were exposed to CO2 at 600, 1000, and 2500 ppm (three 2.5-h sessions, one day; artificially elevated CO2 concentrations) in an office-like chamber. Statistically significant decrements occurred in cognitive performance (decision making, problem resolution) starting at 1000 ppm (Satish et al., 2012).

In schools:
A study in schoolchildren exposed to indoor CO2 concentrations higher than 1000 ppm showed significantly higher risk for dry cough and rhinitis (654 children of 46 classrooms) but outdoor air flow rate per person was inversely correlated with indoor CO2 concentrations (Simoni et al., 2010). A 200 ppm increase in indoor CO2 concentration (range, 1000–2000 ppm) in 45 day care centers (DCCs) was significantly associated with reported wheezing in the 3186 attending children, and a positive trend was observed between CO2 concentration and the prevalence of asthma.
