How many facilities need a physician?
Environment friendly; more then CO2-emissions and plastic waste in our oceans.
Sick building syndrome (SBS) is a medical condition where people in a building suffer from symptoms of illness or feel unwell for no apparent reason. The symptoms tend to increase in severity with the time people spend in the building, and improve over time or even disappear when people are away from the building.
The main identifying observation is an increased incidence of complaints of symptoms such as headache, eye, nose, and throat irritation, fatigue, and dizziness and nausea.
These symptoms appear to be linked to time spent in a building, though no specific illness or cause can be identified. SBS is also used interchangeably with “building-related symptoms”, which orients the name of the condition around patients rather than a “sick” building.
A former WHO-report suggested, up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be subject to complaints related to poor indoor air quality.
Moist, fungus and mold are additional components adding to the equation of health challenges in “modern” housing. Microbes (Microbial volatile organic compounds) in specific forms are considered a reason for cancer. (mycotoxins)
The possibility for air and moist to soak through building materials is one of the keys to a healthy house and inhabitants. Plastic can suffocate both you and your house if used incorrectly.
Don´t expose yourself, and your family to a ‘glocal’ hostile environment. There are too many people living under poor housing conditions affecting, both their physical and psychological health.
