DUST DISEASE TAKING ITS TOLL ON INDIA

The “apocalyptic Pollution levels in Delhi” has been widely reported. The recent ghastly smog has shrouded the national capital for over a week, turning it into a “gas chamber,” and showing no sign of dissipating. By 11am , Delhi’s air quality index (AQI) was at 724, already far beyond the “hazardous” level of 300, according to data from the US embassy’s real-time pollution monitoring system. For comparison, the healthy limit is 50.

With regards to the condition of our roads, earlier this year, IIT-Kanpur found that 56% of particles below 10 microns was caused by road dust, 10% by industrial points, 10% by concrete batching and only 9% by vehicles. In the case of PM2.5, the contributions were 38% by road dust, 20% by vehicles, 12% by domestic fuel and 11% by industry.

Dust pollution is the main air contaminant and environmental hazard, having extensive health, safety and environmental consequences, and is posing significant risks to everyone and everything.

Despite these consequences, it is concerning how little attention is paid to dust management – although recent dust problems have created sharp focus on the issue now.

Airborne dust particles can pass through the nasal passage and travel to the deepest regions of the lungs. When anyone breathe in this dust over a prolonged period of time, it can cause a number of respiratory conditions, including breathing difficulties, respiratory pain, diminished lung function and even cancer. However, because these conditions often take several years to develop, both employers and regulators don’t take them as seriously as workplace injuries, until now.
