The World Health Organization reports that 4.3 million deaths are caused by household air pollution each year, representing over half of the 7 million deaths from air pollution in total, the 4th highest risk factor for death globally and by far the leading environmental risk factor for disease.
WHO also reports that 30% of new and remodelled buildings are responsible for "sick building syndrome" (SBS).
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are found in paint, building materials, furniture and many common household products. They cause eye and respiratory tract irritation, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders, and memory impairment. Long-term exposure can cause cancer.
Formaldehyde is released from MDF, plywood, particle board, and composite flooring. There is a strong association between exposure to formaldehyde and childhood asthma and leukemia.
Low levels of carbon monoxide can cause lightheadedness, confusion, headache, flu-like effects and chronic exposure can lead to depression, confusion, and memory loss. Larger exposures can lead to toxicity of the central nervous system and heart, and death.
