Forskning og påvirkningsnivå ved astma – Research and level of reaction for asthma

Translate: (Go to English version)

Påvirkningsgrad for personer med astma

0,02 PPM (parts mer million, milliondeler)

toxicologicalreports-harrywhaysphd-asthma002ppm

National Academy of Sciences and National Research Council Washington DC USA 26. November 1965

Just denne undersøkelsen gjelder TDI som er en kjemikalie, men det er en pekepinn på hvor lite som skal til for å utløse et astmaanfall.

“Industrial exposure to TDI vapors has resulted in many cases of allergic reactions involving the respiratory tract with symptoms of asthma. The Threshold limit value of 0,02 PPM is believed to prevent sensitization but may not be low enough to prevent asthmatic attacks in sensitized individuals.” Ph.D Harry W. Hays National Academy of Sciences and National Research Council Washington DC USA 26. November 1965

Parfymer er også kjemikalier, så ikke tro de er trygge. Å ha astma er som å være et levende, gående brannalarm. Vi vet når noe er i luften som ikke er god fisk. Våre lungene reagerer på det, og protesterer. Vi får pustevansker.

In English

0,02 PPM a level for asthma attacks

Since 1965 the level for developing a asthma attack is stated to be 0,02 PPM (Parts Per Million).

This research shown here is specifically about TDI chemical but it actually shows how little is needed to start a asthma attack. 0,02 PPM

“Industrial exposure to TDI vapors has resulted in many cases of allergic reactions involving the respiratory tract with symptoms of asthma. The Threshold limit value of 0,02 PPM is believed to prevent sensitization but may not be low enough to prevent asthmatic attacks in sensitized individuals.” Ph.D Harry W. Hays National Academy of Sciences and National Research Council Washington DC USA 26. November 1965

Fragrances is chemicals too, so do not believe they are safe. Having asthma is like being a living, breathing, walking fire alarm. We know when something fishy is in the air. Our lungs react to it, and protest. We get breathing problems.

No more laundry detergent or smell

Research for better environment

“Tenants in Malmö Sweden now becomes the first in the world to test a technology that cleans clothes in cold water and no detergent. Laundry room installed in two high-rise residential Nydala in Malmo used by 70 tenants and has according to owner minimal environmental impact.
– No more buying laundry detergent and fabric softener and additionally wash machines with cold water. This is something that we are the first in the world to offer. It is clean and odor-free, says Magnus novel that is project manager at MKB. In the installed laundry room is a facility in a cabinet that filter the water and de-ionize it. When the deionized water come in contact with the fabrics in the washing machine breaking the ionic bond between the fibers and dirt.

MKB Fasighets AB has high hopes for the technology. Totally are washed six million washes in the property company laundries every year and to wash with cold water would give a very large energy savings. Detergent and fabric softener is no cost for the property, but also here the company sees many benefits as it would save the environment by creating less pollution, less packaging waste and less risk of allergies.
– We want to contribute to ecologically sustainable Malmö, says Magnus Röman. By testing this solution we hope to find one of the ways that can help us achieve our ambitious goals.

In the project, electricity consumption, water consumption and customer satisfaction will be measured during the six months that the company will then decide how to proceed.” aktuellhallbarhet.se

I wish this works out, it would be dandy!
