Using the Home Blood Spot Sampling Kit to test for the effects of air pollution is so simple, as only one spot of blood is required to give a comprehensive analysis of the effects of air pollution. We will be able to detect the specific pollutant as well as the level and severity of chronic air pollution toxins you have been exposed to. This test can also be used as a monitoring device to help check improvements in your condition once the source of the poisoning has been removed or once the exposure is reduced.
Once you know your status for the effects of air pollution, health care professionals or your doctor will be able to offer information, further tests, and appropriate treatment.
Every day millions of people are affected by poor air quality; from living in large cities or the way we use fuels for energy in heating and air conditioning systems, the many modes of transportation available such as cars, trucks, boats and aircraft, processing factories, the production of plastics, even the use of aerosols, all of these play a huge role in the emissions of gases that affect our health.
Some of the effects of air pollution include:
- Respiratory diseases
- Cardiovascular damage
- Fatigue, headaches and anxiety
- Irritation of the eyes, nose and throat
- Damage to reproductive organs
- Harm to the liver, spleen and blood
- Nervous system damage
