Indoor air pollution can not be ignored, the baby becomes the main victim, and purifying the air is serious!
Since the hazards of PM2.5 have been successively popularized, it has caused widespread concern about air quality in the whole society. Mothers have paid attention to the damage of outdoor air pollution to the baby. Therefore, in order to avoid air pollution, the baby is often kept at home or indoors (such as playgrounds, classrooms).
According to a survey, urban residents spend 2.35 hours a day studying, working and living indoors, accounting for 92% of the whole day. It can be seen that our indoor activities are much higher than outdoor, and there is really no indoors. Is the air polluted?
According to research published by the World Health Organization and the US Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution levels are generally much higher than outdoor environmental pollution, usually 2 to 5 times, and in extreme cases more than 100 times. The main targets of this hazard are elderly, infirm, pregnant women and children, especially babies are more vulnerable than adults, so indoor air pollution is also a warning to infants and young children.
The harm of air pollution to your baby, you never think of it.
Minors, especially infants, breathe more air than adults (according to the amount of breath/weight ratio), so they contact and inhale more indoor pollutants. Why do you say this way? Because the baby’s body is in the developmental stage, the metabolism is fast, and it is relatively active, so the respiratory rate is faster, the breathing volume is 50% higher than the adult weight, and at the same time, the baby’s body defense system is not fully developed, therefore, in the air Contaminants have a greater impact on your baby’s health than adults.
■ Chemical pollutants in indoor air
Baby’s breathing rate and metabolism are faster than adults, but their immune system is not perfect, so when inhaling dirty air, your baby is more vulnerable to health risks. For example, sulfur dioxide in the air can cause the lumen of the trachea and bronchi to shrink, making the baby difficult to breathe and even induce asthma; the baby is more sensitive to PM2.5 than adults, and can cause damage to the respiratory and cardiovascular systems; The absorption rate of lead in harmful air is 1.6~2.7 times that of adults. Excessive blood lead will lead to ADHD, learning difficulties, short stature, anemia, and emotional instability.
■ Indoor air pollutants brought by decoration
The main source of indoor air pollution is the decoration of the house, especially the pollution hazard of the new house decoration is particularly serious!
Formaldehyde: strong glare and colorless gas, release time for up to 15 years, has carcinogenic effects;
Benzene: special aromatic odor, mainly including benzene, toluene, xylene, etc. Mild pollution can cause neurasthenia-like symptoms such as dizziness, insomnia, and apathy; long-term exposure to low doses of benzene can cause aplastic anemia, which can lead to leukemia in severe cases;
Ammonia: Strong odor irritating odorous gas. Can cause tears, sore throat, hoarseness, cough, bloodshot, chest tightness, difficulty breathing, and can be accompanied by dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, etc., when severe, pulmonary edema can occur;
Radon: Radioactive inert gas, colorless and odorless, with an incubation period of 15-40 years. Strong carcinogens recognized by the World Health Organization, especially lung cancer;
TVOC: refers to volatile organic compounds, divided into eight categories: alkanes, aromatics, alkenes, halocarbons, esters, aldehydes, ketones and others, is a general term for all volatile organic compounds in the room. TVOC evaporates into the air at room temperature. Its toxicity, irritation, carcinogenicity and special odor affect the skin and mucous membranes and cause acute damage to the human body.
Nearly 70% of newly renovated houses are unqualified for air testing, and children’s rooms are more polluted.
Parents usually pursue aesthetics for children’s rooms, and strive to give children the most attractive and childhood color design, so more decoration materials will be involved in the decoration, and the layout will be more colorful. But whether the decoration materials are environmentally friendly is not something that parents can control – paints, paints, plates, wallpapers, etc., will emit more than 500 kinds of toxic and harmful compounds.
To avoid pollution, my mother must do the following
Start with diet and improve your baby’s immunity
■ Eat more vegetables and fruits rich in vitamins;
■ Eat more fungus, Sydney, white fungus, lotus seeds, lily and other lung foods;
■ Give your baby more detox foods such as carrots, garlic, figs, grapes, cucumbers, and cherries;
■ Give your baby more foods such as Flammulina velutipes, jujube, and rough glutinous rice to enhance immunity and anti-allergy;
■ Eat more green onions, garlic and other foods that can be sterilized in the body. For example, when you change seasons, you can give your baby some raw garlic, which will effectively prevent influenza and respiratory diseases.
■ Drink plenty of water, this principle is almost always eaten!
Go to the green park for outdoor activities
When the weather and air quality are good, you must bring your baby to outdoor activities, and there are fewer particles in the air. If possible, take a child out of the country once a month, thoroughly clear the lungs, which is good for health.
Ensure that the air entering the room is clean and fresh
Conventional ventilation and ventilation methods are no longer practical. In some cities in China, the number of heavy pollution days has reached half in one year, and the outdoor is foggy. Is ventilation not ‘leading the wolf into the room’? In order to prevent a large amount of dust from accumulating indoors and affecting the baby’s breathing health, the mother needs to choose a professional new fan for the children’s room to exchange oxygen and oxygen to ensure that the baby breathes clean and fresh air every day.
Place air purification products indoors, especially in children’s rooms
The methods mentioned above have certain limitations. What if you need to stay indoors and maintain a certain temperature? For example, there is heating or air conditioning, so it is not suitable to open the window. Therefore, it is necessary to equip the children’s room and even all rooms with air purification products. The good purification system can not only filter out most of the particulate matter in the air, but also remove formaldehyde and other decoration pollution, giving the baby a healthy growth environment.
