Solid fuels for cooking create indoor air pollution leading to health risks in India. Clean fuel alternatives such as LPG promoted by the government envisaged health and environmental benefits. Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality within and around buildings and is known to affect the health, comfort and well-being of building occupants. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to sick building syndrome, reduced productivity and impaired learning in schools.. IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), particulates.

Further, black carbon aerosols from household solid fuel use in the Tibetan Plateau are thought to significantly contribute to glacial melting (Xu et al ). Cleaner-burning stoves and fuels can potentially reduce household air pollution concentrations and exposure (Ezzati ).

Bayesian modelling of household solid fuel use: We evaluated the risk factors for childhood pneumonia with particular reference to indoor air-pollution associated with solid fuel use for cooking (e.g. coal, wood, dung), using a case-control study in a children's hospital in . In general terms Indoor air pollution means the chemicals or the physical properties that pollute the air quality of a house, building, institution or any closed space of an indoor environment. The amount of Indoor Pollution caused does not differ from place to place.

Indoor air pollutants associated with combustion of solid fuels in households of developing countries are now recognized as a major source of health risks to the exposed Cited by: Access to modern energy sources has been described as a "necessary, although not sufficient, requirement for economic and social development" (IEA ).

It is, therefore, of great concern that almost half the world's population still relies for its everyday household energy needs on inefficient and highly polluting solid fuels, mostly biomass (wood, animal dung, and crop wastes) and coal.

WHO recognizes that air pollution (including household and ambient sources) is a critical risk factor for noncommunicable diseases, causing an estimated 24% of all adult deaths from heart disease, 25% from stroke, 43% from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and 29% from lung cancer.

Air pollution from household fuel combustion is the chief environmental health risk. • The ostensibly “open” accessibility of solid fuels makes them the principal fuel source for household purposes in India. • 80% women are exposed to its health perils and % of.

Household air pollution (HAP) - predominantly from cooking fuel is a major public health hazard and one of the leading causes of respiratory illness and deaths among children under-five years in India.

This study investigates the association between HAP from cooking fuel and under-five mortality using India’s National Family and Health Survey (NFHS) datasets over the period – Indoor air pollution is the degradation of indoor air quality by harmful chemicals and other materials; it can access to water are associated with solid fuel use, and should be considered while measuring impact of solid The effects of indoor air pollution in India on health are depicted in Table 1.

Indoor air pollution in developing nations is a significant form of indoor air pollution (IAP) that is little known to those in the developed world.

Three billion people in developing countries across the globe rely on biomass, in the form of wood, charcoal, dung, and crop residue, as their domestic cooking much of the cooking is carried out indoors in environments that lack proper.

Around the world, more than 3 billion people—nearly half the world's population—cook their food using solid fuels like firewood and charcoal on open fires or traditional stoves. This produces a lot of smoke, creating indoor air pollution, which, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), kills millions of people annually.

This type of pollution is of particular concern in India.Indoor air pollution, due to household solid fuel use, is responsible for a significant burden of disease in developing countries. Fuel choice is often associated with household income.
