Reporter survey: 50% of white blood patients are related to decoration

recently, the reporter interviewed a number of medical institutions and learned that in the past oneortwo years, medical staff from leukemia patients hospitalized for treatment found that at least half of the patients in Daocheng have lived in new houses that have just been renovated. As the causes of leukemia mainly include genetic and environmental factors, experts believe that indoor air pollution is an important inducement that can not be ignored. In other words, if materials with excessive formaldehyde, benzene and other chemical elements are used for home decoration, or toxic and harmful gases are not fully released and eliminated after decoration, moving to a new house is very likely to lay hidden dangers for human health

experts found in clinical practice that not only the proportion of children hospitalized with a history of home decoration pollution is high, but also among adult patients, it is also common to live in newly decorated houses. According to Ms. sun, the head nurse of the Department of Hematology in a hospital, leukemia patients treated in their ward are concentrated between the ages of 30 and 40, five of whom have a "history of family decoration contact"

Sun Chen told reporters that from the clinical situation in recent years, there are more young and middle-aged white blood patients in general hospitals. "A famous female patient once told me that she and her family moved in two months after the decoration of the new house. At first, she felt that the room tasted very strong and smoked, but after living in for a period of time, she adapted and couldn't smell the peculiar smell..." Sun Chen believed that from the situation they had, although it was difficult to conclude that leukemia must be caused by family decoration, from the perspective of health care, It is advisable to let the air of the newly decorated house be fully purified before moving in

the incidence of leukemia is on the rise

"nationwide, the incidence of leukemia has shown an upward trend in recent years." Mr. Liang, deputy director of the Department of Hematology of a hospital, said in an interview with reporters. Specifically, at present, the medical community generally believes that the main factors of leukemia, in addition to family genetic factors, environmental factors mainly include: radiation factors, chemical factors, biological factors (caused by virus infection). According to clinical findings, at present, chemical factors account for a large proportion, especially family decoration, which can be called the "culprit". It is reported that the newly decorated house is easy to endanger human health if the formaldehyde exceeds the standard. Formaldehyde is a colorless gas with strong pungent odor and high toxicity. It ranks second in the priority control list of toxic chemicals in China. Formaldehyde has been identified as carcinogenic and teratogenic substances by the World Health Organization

it is also reported that formaldehyde is the raw material for manufacturing synthetic resins, paints, plastics and man-made fibers. Materials used in interior decoration or furniture, such as plywood, blockboard, medium density fiberboard, particleboard, wall covering, wallpaper, chemical fiber carpet, paint, coating, adhesive, etc., contain formaldehyde or chemical substances that can be hydrolyzed to formaldehyde to varying degrees. These residual or decomposed formaldehyde will gradually release into the surrounding environment, and the longest release period can reach more than ten years
