Air pollution, protect your baby’s health.

 

   The harmful effects of air pollution are a silent factor affecting children’s health and tend to be more serious.

Currently, the problem of air pollution in big cities or industrial zones is at an alarming rate and is getting worse. The mist in the morning is sometimes a layer of fine dust – one of the factors that make the respiratory tract more and more sensitive. According to experts, children are among the most vulnerable to the effects of air pollution.

* Why are children more susceptible to the harmful effects of air pollution than adults?

Children are at high risk of developing health problems due to poor air quality. Besides, some other reasons why babies are easily affected by the above problem include:

Children tend to breathe faster than adults. This means that pollutants in the air have a higher chance of entering the baby’s body. These pollutants can stay in the lungs for a long time, thereby affecting this part in particular and overall health in general.

A baby’s lungs don’t complete their development until they turn 6 years old. If your baby lives in smoky areas, such as construction sites, industrial zones, these harmful factors will gradually weaken the health of the respiratory system and lead to other medical problems.

Another reason why young children are more susceptible to health problems due to the harmful effects of air pollution is their exposure to harmful substances. Children often spend time outdoors playing and moving around in kindergarten playgrounds and in residential areas and parks. These areas are not always so clean. Dirt from the outside will accidentally penetrate inside the baby’s body.

* Harmful effects of air pollution on children.

Harmful air pollutants can affect your child’s health in many ways if he or she is regularly exposed to them, such as:

Excessive air pollution interferes with your baby’s growth and development or even affects the functioning of the lungs.

Exposure to polluted air on a regular basis can aggravate health conditions such as cystic fibrosis or asthma in children.

The harmful effects of air pollution in addition to affecting the respiratory system, they also affect the nervous system. Long-term exposure to harmful substances such as lead has the potential to stunt a child’s cognitive development.

The harmful effects of air pollution will affect overall health, contributing to the health status of children becoming weaker.

* How to reduce the harmful effects of air pollution.

Relying on a single solution to reduce air pollution is not feasible. So you can protect your baby from the harmful effects of air pollution through a variety of ways to keep them safe and healthy. You:

Ensure a healthy diet rich in nutrients and essential vitamins and minerals. This will help your baby stay healthy and reduce the risk of developing a respiratory infection or other serious condition.

If you feel that indoor air quality is poor, use an air purifier to remove impurities and many harmful elements that lurk in the air.

Any type of physical activity will help improve lung and immune system health, and help optimize the functioning of the cardiovascular system. These factors will give your baby the strength to fight off health problems.

Let your children play in well-ventilated areas with lots of green trees and cool breezes.

Use a respirator, filter fine dust when traveling on the road by motorbike or walking. Experts note, parents should choose products with N95 and N99 symbols because they can filter out 85-99% of small dust particles.

Hopefully, the above article has helped you get some necessary information about the harmful effects of air pollution on children. Besides, you should try to guide your child in good hygiene habits after going to school or going out to limit bacteria on hands, feet or skin that can harm your child’s health.
