Indoor Air Quality and Health. Among the factors that influence the estimation of human exposure to indoor air pollution, A total of 31 in-depth interviews were . Consumption of charcoal-grilled food increases their levels (,), as does high indoor air exposure. Total PAH-DNA adduct levels and BPDE-DNA adduct levels were significantly higher in smokers than among non-smokers. Altogether, PAH-DNA adducts can be used as a qualitative biomarker of exposure to combustion emissions, most reliably on a Cited by: @article{osti_, title = {Indoor air pollution}, author = {Wadden, R A and Scheff, P A}, abstractNote = {More than 80% of most individuals' time is spent indoors. With tighter insulation in buildings, pollution concentrations in internal spaces could rise to .

Carbon dioxide (CO 2) testing is often performed during the early stages of an IAQ investigation because people exhale CO 2 and if there is not enough outdoor (“fresh”) air in a space, the indoor levels of CO 2 will increase. Elevated CO 2 concentrations in a building reflect insufficient exchange of "fresh" outdoor air for "spent" interior air, allowing the accumulation of human . trol of indoor air quality therefore creates a considerable health burden.

Air Pollution and Health is the first fully comprehensive and current account of air pollution science and it impact on human health. It ranges in scope from meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, and particle physics to the causes and scope of allergic reactions and respiratory, cardiovascular, and related disorders.

Human activities such as cleaning, cooking and bathing add moisture to indoor air, resulting in the air indoors containing more moisture than the air outdoors. The activities of a family of four typically add ten litres of water to the indoor air – per day (British Standard, ). Although inhalation is the major route of the total human exposure to naphthalene, dermal exposure is not to be neglected. Preuss et al.
