Schools & Childcares

Children are often more vulnerable to environmental hazards than adults.

They may experience higher rates of exposure to pathogens, pollutants and toxins in proportion to their body weight, and have more years of life ahead of them in which they may suffer long-term effects from early exposure. They breathe more air, drink more water, and eat more food per unit of body weight than adults do.

Typical childhood behaviors, such as crawling and putting objects in the mouth, can also lead to increased risks.

Source of Contaminants

  • Airborne pathogens
  • Surface contaminants
  • Dust mites
  • Mold and spores

Effects of Exposure

  • Aggravates Acute Respiratory Infections (ARI), including upper respiratory infections such as colds and sore throats and lower respiratory infections such as pneumonia
  • Causes children to frequently fall sick when they come into contact with other children who are sick. Smith from University of California, Berkley, found that at least 20% of the overall mortality in India is attributable to environmental factors. Of this, foul indoor air and dirty water alone cause about 80% of deaths.
