Chemical exposure a danger to childrens breating ability – studies confirm

“To nye studier viser at utallige barn kan lide av pusteproblemer på grunn av noen av disse vanlige kjemiske truslene. Forskere fra Columbia Center for Children Environmental Health (CCCEH) ved Mailman School of Public Health og Columbia University Medical Center har fastslått at ungdommene som er eksponert under graviditeten av kjemikalier mye brukt i plantevernmidler additiv piperonylbutoksid (PBO) har en økt risiko for utvikle en kronisk hoste i alderen 5 – 6. Deres studie publisert i Miljø International, gir bevis for at et barns luftveier er utsatt for skader fra giftige eksponeringer mens de fortsatt i livmoren. En kronisk barndomhoste kan alvorlig forstyrre aktiviteter på dagtid og søvn.

En enda mer alvorlig problem forårsaket av vanlige kjemikalier som påvirker barnas evne til å puste fritt har blitt avslørt av en ny CCCEH studie. Ungdommer utsatt for dietylftalat (DEP) og butylbenzyl ftalat (BBzP), som er ftalat kjemikalier som vanligvis finnes i personlig pleie og plastprodukter, har en forhøyet risiko for astma-relaterte luftveibetennelser.

Forskerne studerte 244 barn mellom alderen 5 – 9 og fant de alle hadde påvisbare nivåer av ftalater i urinen. De med de høyere nivåer av begge ftalater ble funnet å ha høyere nivåer av nitrogenoksid i deres utåndet pust som er en biologisk markør for luftveisinflammasjon. Koblingen mellom BBzP eksponering og luftveibetennelse var spesielt sterk blant barn som nylig hadde opplevd piping i brystet, et vanlig symptom på astma.

Mens mange faktorer bidrar til barnastma, viser studier at eksponering for ftalater kan spille en betydelig rolle, “sier A. Just, PhD, førsteforfatter på studien. Studien er publisert online: American Journal of  Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.”

“Two new studies reveal countless children could be suffering breathing problems  due to some of these common chemical threats. … Researchers from the Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health (CCCEH) at the Mailman School of Public Health and Columbia  University Medical Center have determined that youngsters exposed during the prenatal period to the widely used pesticide additive piperonyl butoxide (PBO)  have an increased risk of developing a chronic cough at ages 5 and 6. Their  study published in Environment International, provides evidence that a child’s respiratory system is  susceptible to damage from toxic exposures while still in the womb. A chronic childhood cough can seriously disrupt daytime activities and sleep.

An even more serious problem caused by common chemicals that impact children’s ability to breathe freely has been revealed by another new CCCEH study. Youngsters exposed to diethyl phthalate (DEP) and butylbenzyl phthalate (BBzP), which are phthalate chemicals commonly found in personal care and plastic products, have an elevated risk of asthma-related airway inflammation.

The researchers studied 244 children between of ages 5 and 9 and found they all had detectable levels of phthalates in their urine. Those with the higher levels of both phthalates were found to have higher levels of nitric oxide in their exhaled breath that is a  biological marker of airway inflammation. The link between BBzP exposure and airway inflammation was especially strong among children who had recently experienced wheezing, a common symptom of asthma.

While many factors contribute to childhood asthma, the studies shows that exposure to  phthalates may play a significant role,” says A. Just, PhD, first author on the study. Study is published online: American Journal of  Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.”

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
