air poison: Probably with ordinary air pollution one can find high amounts of pollutants and dust that can act as irritants and less commonly allergans but usually not poisons. Trace amount of mercury, lead, and various chemicals can be seen with higher amounts coming from industrial emissions or hazardous waste sites. The symptoms are fatigue, headache and respiratory and eye irritation.

Can you tell me the effect on indoor air pollution?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Stachler
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 31 years experience
Indoor air pollution: It is very difficult to tell you what pollutant you are exposed to without having the air scientifically evaluated by a professional. What you probably have is indoor allergies to dust mites or molds or other air inhalants. Do you have the same symptoms out of that building? How old is the structure? Forced air or steam heat? All of this is factored in. Good luck.
