The biggest cause of indoor pollution in India is smoke, which is produced by burning wood, cow dung and charcoal to cook and generate heat.

They have many side effects on health. In addition, asbestos and glass fibers used in construction materials such as roofs and tiles, fibrils present in rock wool, ceramic fibers, can cause lung cancer and mesothelioma.

People may be at risk of COPD when inhaling harmful pollutants such as fine particles, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide present in smoke.

This is especially the case with women, as they use bio fuel most of the time in the kitchen. Household items and construction materials also exacerbate the problem.

Formaldehyde is a known human carcinogen, which originates from paint, wood lamination, and wall coverings.

They have many side effects on health, such as irritation in the eyes, nose and throat, nausea and damage to the liver, kidneys and central nervous system.

In addition, naturally occurring radon gas may be present in the underground part of homes, which can damage the cellular DNA of the respiratory epithelium and cause lung cancer.

Even dust that appears harmless if present in large amounts can cause asthma.

Many household items such as furnishings, printers, glue, paint, paint strippers, wood preservatives, aerosol sprays, cleaners and antimicrobials, moth repellents and air fresheners, fuels and automotive products and pesticides, etc.

produce volatile organic compounds, which harm health. Can deliver. There is still a lack of tested and cost-effective solutions to prevent non-smoking household pollutants.

Proper ventilation is often proposed when working with smokeless pollutants in homes, but this may not be an adequate measure in places like Delhi, where outdoor pollution is very high.

Another solution is to choose better alternatives to products that release such pollutants. For example, using plant-based derivatives and water-based paints instead of traditional paints.

However, the number of currently available options is very limited.

Cleaning the pollution is another solution. Recently, many middle class and upper class Indians are getting air purifiers.

However, most of them are expensive, such as 677 sq ft air purifying air purifiers cost around Rs 10,000 and the air purifiers are yet to be tested.

A day after Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel signed the ordinance on forced religious conversions, the Samajwadi Party announced that it will oppose the ‘love jihad’ law when it comes up in the Assembly next month.

Samajwadi Party (SP)President Akhilesh Yadav said his party is not in favour of such a law and will oppose it strongly.

“On one hand, the government offers Rs 50,000 to those opting for inter-caste and inter-religion marriages, and on the other, they have brought this law. We will ask the government to bring a law which guarantees doubling of farmers’ income instead,” he said.

The SP chief accused the BJP government of planning to sell a government-owned shopping mall worth Rs 1,000 crore to a private entity at throwaway prices. He further added that an expressway was also being sold in a similar fashion.

“This will be probed when time comes. We will expose the corruption this government is indulging in,” he said.

Akhilesh further said it is ironic that the government talks of zero tolerance for corruption but, in an international survey, the country has figured on the top of the list of nations where bribery is most prevalent.

Reacting to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s announcement of setting up 10,000 MW solar power units, Yadav said, “He does not know anything about a solar panel. During the SP government, we had set up a solar power unit.
