This booklet is a useful quantity for air defense pros and PhD scholars, environmental engineers, environmental wellbeing and fitness researchers, and public healthiness coverage makers.

Example text

Consequently, the closer to the floor a person’s nostrils are, the more fumes are inhaled and absorbed through the lungs. Children inhale more air per body mass unit, so they breathe in more air than adults (Ozuah 2000). Inhaled mercury fumes reach the alveoli, from where, thanks to their mono-atomic form, they penetrate into the bloodstream. Some of them become oxidized to Hg2+ in erythrocytes, but a large proportion of mercury, thanks to its good solubility in fats (5–50 mg dm–3), is able to penetrate the blood—brain and blood— placenta barriers.
