Exploratory study of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) contributions to household air pollution arising from improved cookstove use in rural Malawi
Kondwani R. Chidziwisano1,2, Michael O. Rivett1*, Amornphat Tadsanaprasittipol1,3, Laura A.
McGregor1,4 and Robert M. Kalin1

"Around three million premature deaths annually are ascribed to household air pollution (HAP) arising
from inefficient burning of biomass and emissions of products of incomplete combustion. The
developing-world response has been widespread adoption of improved cookstove (ICS) technologies."
• The Surgeon General has determined that there is no safe level of exposure to ambient smoke!

• If you smell even a subtle odor of smoke, you are being exposed to poisonous and carcinogenic chemical compounds!

• Even a brief exposure to smoke raises blood pressure, (no matter what your state of health) and can cause blood clotting, stroke, or heart attack in vulnerable people. Even children experience elevated blood pressure when exposed to smoke!

• Since smoke drastically weakens the lungs' immune system, avoiding smoke is one of the best ways to prevent colds, flu, bronchitis, or risk of an even more serious respiratory illness, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis! Does your child have the flu? Chances are they have been exposed to ambient smoke!
