Respiratory Issues Unified to Electrical and Electronic Gear Squander Openness in the Hospitality Sector.
Electrical and electronic equipment waste (e-waste) exposure is becoming a rising health hazard. The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of e-waste exposure on respiratory symptoms and lung function indicators in workers engaged in informal recycling activities. Exposed e-waste was chosen at random. A questionnaire derived from the British Medical Research Council's standardised respiratory questionnaire was used to assess respiratory complaints. A portable spirometer was used to measure the participants' lung function. This huge public health threat should be made more widely known in other Sub-Saharan and Asian cities.Author(s): Alistair M.
