Background & Aims of the Study:
According to statistics reported by the international organization 500,000 people annually due to exposure to airborne particulate matter in air are dying prematurely. Studies show the dust storms an increase is 7/1 % fatality. Control of particulate matter is one of the most method for decrease direct and indirect effects of particles. The aim of the study was to analyze the relationship between exposure to particulate matter of the plants, environment, humans, and is a crisis.
Methods: We conducted overview of studies examining the relationship of dust phenomenon impacts with emphasis on dust problems and present solutions in Khuzestan.
Conclusion: The evidence was considered inconclusive the environmental impact such as reducing vision loss caused by visible light availability, efficacy on the level of solar radiation and waste material. Short-term effects of dust, including more sensitive eyes, nose and throat, respiratory tract infections, headache, nausea and allergic reactions, this phenomenon can be long-term chronic respiratory and cardiovascular disease, lung cancer incidence and mortality.
Proposed solution: Measures taken to decrease the impact of dust particles: avoid the activities outdoor, created ventilation system, increasing fluid intake to excretion of heavy metals associated with suspended particles such as mercury and lead, using a mask Creation and design of clean room and sprayed mulch.
