Many people don’t know the difference between indoor air pollution and outdoor air pollution. The difference between them is really huge. Indoor air pollution is more dangerous than the outdoor air pollution. For this reason, indoor air pollution is unwanted because it contain unsafe materials in the air that produce several diseases that my cause deadly effects. According to a study the top five environmental health dangers are influenced from indoor air pollutant.
Stress can be a negative social determinant of health in very many ways. Numerous poignant and physical disarrays have been associated with stress. For instance, high levels of stress may cause depression, heart attacks, anxiety, hypertension, stroke, and immune system disorders that augment susceptibility to infectivity (Folkman, 2010). In addition, stress is responsible for a host of viral allied disorders that range from herpes to common colds, various cancers, in addition to autoimmune infections like multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. On the other hand, stress can bear direct consequences on the skin, manifesting itself in the form of rashes, atopic dermatitis, goose bumps, and hives (Harrington, 2012).
that are responsible for “building related diseases”( US EPA, 1990; WHO 1989). Building Related Diseases also known as Sick Building Syndrome is the collective name of illnesses such as asthma, bronchitis, allergic reactions, headache, nose or throat irritation, dry cough, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, allergic rhinitis, etc. that are caused by Polluted Indoor Air (BOULAY and BOULET, 2003). Indoor Air Pollution is a significant problem that needs an efficient solution. The traditional methods of purifying air like filtration, adsorption and disinfection have a limited ability to effectively achieve suitable IAQ Standards.
Not only does the indoor humidity affect people but material items as well. “Humidity is a measure of the amount of water vapor in the air, not the total amount of vapor and liquid” (USA Today, 2011).

There are different origins of indoor air pollution: the occupants; inadequate materials or materials with defects used in the construction of the building; the work performed within, increase or improper use of normal products such as pesticides; disinfectants, cleaning and polishing products, etc. ; combustion gases from smoking, cooking areas, and laboratories; and cross-contamination from other poorly ventilated zones.1 Due to differences in the volumes of air, substances emitted in indoor air have lesser opportunity to dilute than the outdoor air.1 Other sources of contaminants are combustion in stationary sources (power stations), combustion in moving sources (vehicles); and industrial processes.1 There are also naturally generated contaminants in the air, such as particles of volcanic dust, soil and sea salt, and spores and
This unwanted sound can seriously damage and effect physiological and psychological health. For instance, noise pollution can cause annoyance and aggression, hypertension, high stress levels, tinnitus, hearing loss, and other harmful effects depending on the level of sound, or how loud it is. Furthermore, stress and hypertension are the leading causes to heart problems, whereas tinnitus can lead to forgetfulness, severe depression and at times panic attacks. Everything from the sound of an alarm clock in the morning to the sound of an airplane passing by to the sound of your friend screaming at you can cause noise pollution, and leave you effected for a short period, or for the rest of your life. But not all sound is “unwanted”.
There are many outcomes that could happen if a person lives an unhealthy lifestyle.

Chronic Bronchitis is a chronic illness that has an effect on the individual’s lungs. This Chronic illness can become even worse if a person does not maintain healthy lifestyle factors. Chronic Bronchitis can evolve to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Toxins are poison, and can have many adverse effects on a person’s health and well-being. It could be the reason children and adults are getting sick more often or why we feel more tired and sluggish. Contrary to what most people believe, exposure to toxins are found in everyday household items, cleaning products, materials that are used to build homes and offices, copy machines and office products, even in some medicines that we take. People do not have to stick their heads in a microwave, drink poison or purposely inhale exhaust fumes to experience the dangers of toxins. On the contrary, toxins enter our bodies in many more subtle ways.
Limited space has a profound effect on the human psychological because it is going to vary from one person to the next. With limited space in urban areas it is likely for aggressive and violent behaviors to spike, social interactions between community members becomes negative, and poor academic performance is also effected (Clayton & Meyers, 2008). Noises which are annoying and intrude on an individual’s quietness could be a problem, but it depends on the perception or the way the individual interprets the noise whether it is intrusive or not (Straub, 2007). Sometimes individuals have little control over the noise and it causes anxiety and stress, but the exercise of noise reduction strategies have been beneficial to people that struggle with noisy annoyances ranging from simple to complex.
Chemicals and Drugs Chemicals can be harmful to the hospital’s staff, patients, and guests. If they are not handled properly, they can cause skin, eye, and lung irritation. Certain chemicals may be corrosive, which means that it may physically damage the medical equipment as well as the hospital’s staff, patients, and guests.
