Indoor air pollution ad

Exposure to indoor air pollution from the combustion of traditional biomass fuels (wood, charcoal, animal dung, and crop wastes) is a significant public health hazard predominantly affecting poor rural and urban communities in developing countries. Large numbers of people are exposed on a daily basis to harmful emissions and other health risks from biomass and coal-burning, which typically takes place in open fires or low-efficiency stoves with inadequate venting. It is estimated that globally 2.5 to 3 billion people rely on these (solid) fuels for everyday household energy needs. The majority of those exposed are women, who are normally responsible for food preparation and cooking, and infants/young children who are usually with their mothers near the cooking area…WHO.
