What is relationship between the lung cancer number and wildfire smoke? June 18 2023, 0 Comments
They found that people who lived within 50 kilometres of a wildfire in the past 10 years were 10 per cent more likely to develop brain tumours, and five per cent more likely to have lung cancer, compared to people living further away.
The wildfire smoke is every where from east cost to west in Canada. The PM2.5 particles reduce the visibility.
You should wear very good quality of face mask (no leaking) in order to avoid the lung cancer.
According to National Cancer Center's report, the number of lung cancer inireased by 300% from 1990 to 2017 due to air pollution, 14.4% of death is coming from PM2.5 air pollution.
A higher risk of getting cancer compared to those who don't. Wearing an N95 mask to fend off smoke during outdoor activities to reduce part of smoke.
The wildfire can burn everthing! The N95 can not brock all stuff since you still feel the odor and smell when you breath.
The best mask for wildfire smoke must meet following conditions:
1) No air leaking mask to fit face
2) HEPA Filter N95, N99, N100, or electrostatic filter
3) Activated carbon fibre
Smome researh result for the wildfire damages October 18 2022, 26 Comments
Research has linked wildfire smoke to the worsening of several conditions. Fierce wildfires in California in 2020 caused people to inhale smoke that raised their risk of heart attacks by up to 70%, a study found, with the smoke causing an estimated 3,000 deaths in people older than 65.
A separate study published in May found that people living within 50km (31 miles) of wildfires over the past decade had a 10% higher incidence of brain tumors and a 5% higher chance of developing lung cancer compared with people living farther away.
There are 25 milllion people in 2020 alone breathing in potentially toxic air from fire in US. There are 10 million people in western US smoke from wildfires can be 10 time more harmful than the sources of air pollution
Wildfire smoke cause lung cancer! October 05 2022, 5 Comments
Published in The Lancet Planetary Health, the study shows that people living within 50-kilometer of wildfires over the past 10 years had a 10 per cent higher incidence of brain tumors and 4.9 per cent higher incidence of lung cancer, compared to people living further away.
Breathing that air was similar to smoking seven cigarettes a day. Cigarettes at least have filters. The health effects of breathing heavy wildfire smoke is probably worse without a mask.
There is a year round with wildfire now in west US and in BC, Canada.
Lung cancer patient said: Wearing the N99 portable air purifier with nose mask feels more comfortable than not to wear it. June 25 2022, 18 Comments
Mr. Jing told me today, he received the N99 portable air purifier with nose mask and to wear it in kitchen. It is more comfortable compare to not wear it.
He had lung cancel at first stage last year due to air pulltion in China, he never smoke.
He need clean air to breath now. The air is treated by HEPA H12 and acativated carbon fiber remove the PM2.5, odors and VOC's.
