Abstract :筆者らは、空気質と健康に関して、ホルムアルデヒドおよび揮発性有機化合物の室内濃度を測定してきた。測定対象の物件は、シックハウス症候群を発症したと思われる小学生が通う小学校(シックスクール)、シックハウス症候群がみられた個人住宅、新築木造住宅など多岐にわたる。その経験の中からホルムアルデヒドと揮発性有機化合物によって汚染された室内空気汚染と人の健康について総括する。
Recently, indoor air issues are controversy not only in Japan but also around the world. Indoor air pollution by chemical substances might have adverse effect on human health and may cause the distinctive disease so-called sick house syndrome, sick building syndrome, and chemical sensitivity. This article reviews health problems due to indoor air pollution by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) based on our experiences. We measured concentration of formaldehyde and VOCs in many occupational spaces: several types of residences, a primary school, and some institutions. Additionally, some people who complained about health problems related to indoor air pollution were interviewed. First, we focused on the characteristics of VOCs and briefly explained useful measuring methods for them in actual field settings. Next, the symptoms, pathology, mechanisms, diagnosis, and remedies to indoor chemical pollution were summarized. We concluded that our tasks were to educate the public and medical specialists on the information about health problems caused by VOCs, and to improve our research to solve those issues.
