Sunday, September 24, 2017

  WEHD 2017

On World Environmental Health Day on September 26, 2017, the DENR, Department of Health (DOH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) Philippines jointly highlight the environmental risk of indoor and outdoor air pollution to the health of Filipinos.

Air pollution is an environmental health risk around the world with 92% of the world’s population exposed to air quality levels that exceed WHO’s ambient air quality guidelines. People in urban areas are more exposed to dangerous levels of air pollution than those in rural areas. Air pollutants such as sulfate, nitrates and black carbon, found in both indoor and outdoor settings, are extremely dangerous to people’s health.When the size of the particulate matter in the air is 2.5 micrometers (PM2.5) and below, it penetrates to a person’s lungs and cardiovascular system.

According to WHO,the safe level for PM2.5is10 micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3) of air in a year. In Manila, the annual average of these pollutants is at 17 μg/m3, 70 percent more than the recommended safe level.

Globally, over six million deaths are linked to indoor and outdoor pollution due to non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, and chronic respiratory diseasesevery year. In the Philippines, about 1 in 4 deaths are attributed to air pollution.  >> more
