Have you been feeling extra tired these few days? You are not alone...
During these past few days, many people have reported that they feel extra tired, and even coughing and getting sick.
This is not a coincidence as the haze approaches Singapore aggressively.
Here are some of the harms associated with haze exposure:
- Fatigue: Haze consists of tiny particles that, when inhaled, interfere with the lungs' ability to take in oxygen efficiently. Reduced oxygen intake lead to fatigue and feelings of tiredness.
- Respiratory Issues: Exposure to haze causes respiratory problems. This includes symptoms like coughing, shortness of breath, and a sore throat. Individuals with asthma or chronic respiratory conditions can experience severe exacerbations.
- Cardiovascular Problems: Fine particles in haze penetrate deep into the lungs and enter the bloodstream, increasing the risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks, strokes, and hypertension.
- Eye Irritation: Haze causes eye irritation leading to conditions like conjunctivitis (pink eye) and itchy or watery eyes.
- Skin Irritation: Some people may experience skin irritations or allergies when exposed to haze, manifesting as rashes or exacerbated eczema.
- Reduced Lung Function: Over time, continuous exposure to the pollutants in haze leads to reduced lung function and chronic respiratory diseases.
- Mental Health Effects: Prolonged haze conditions can lead to psychological stress, anxiety, and mood disorders, especially when individuals are forced to stay indoors for extended periods.
- Vulnerable Populations at Higher Risk: Children, the elderly, and individuals with pre-existing health conditions are at a higher risk of experiencing the adverse effects of haze.
- Decreased Immune Function: Some studies suggest that prolonged exposure to air pollution, including haze, might suppress the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections.
- Potential Carcinogenic Effects: Certain components of haze, especially when resulting from the burning of fossil fuels, can be carcinogenic. Long-term exposure may increase the risk of lung cancer.
- Headaches and Dizziness: Some individuals may experience headaches, dizziness, or fatigue due to reduced air quality during haze events.
Given these potential harms, it's crucial for individuals in affected areas to take precautions during haze episodes, such as staying indoors, using air purifiers, and wearing masks when necessary.
If you haven't gotten an air purifier, each breath you take during haze is a step away from a healthier, more vibrant you. Don't delay that journey any longer.
