AIR QUALITY ANALYSIS AND STATISTICS FOR Bangkok Noi

Is there a large amount of air pollution present in Bangkok Noi?

Bangkok Noi has seen some high readings of air pollution in the months leading up to 2022, as well as fairly elevated readings in January of 2022. US AQI readings taken in the latter part of December 2021 went as high as 152, placing Bangkok Noi into the 'unhealthy' air quality rating bracket, indicating that the air would be dangerous to breathe for a large number of people. Slightly improved readings of 88 were taken in January, with 'moderate' readings of 88 being on record. However, these numbers can and do change rapidly, and as such caution should be practiced amongst those living in Bangkok Noi. Monitoring the air quality readings can go a long way in safeguarding your health when pollution levels get excessively high in Bangkok Noi and surrounding areas.

Who is at higher risk of negative health consequences from pollution exposure in Bangkok Noi?

Whilst certain groups are far adversely affected by pollution exposure in Bangkok Noi, it is of note that any level of air pollution at all, carries with it the possibility to cause unfavorable health effects amongst those who are exposed, including both young and healthy citizens or those with no prior health conditions. Clouds of smoke and fine particles may trigger sudden immune responses, cause health conditions related to the skin, lungs and heart (in more severe cases) to arise. Directing back to the question, those who are more at risk include groups such as younger children and babies, both of whom are highly vulnerable to the damaging side effects of chemical and particle exposure. Alterations to the nervous system can take place, due to many chemical compounds having this property when they accumulate in large enough quantities within the human body. This can result in delayed growth, as well as developmental problems and impaired mental capabilities, with youths who suffer from excessive pollution exposure for many years in Bangkok Noi and surrounding areas sometimes having these ailments, as well as sustaining damage to their lungs and other organ systems. This can once again have a further effect of slowing development and leading to other lifelong health issues. Other groups that fall into the sensitive bracket are pregnant women, who much like the young children and baby’s demographic, can subject their unborn child to the negative side effects of pollution exposure due to certain hazardous chemicals being able to make their way to the child in the womb, causing instances of babies being born prematurely, with low birth weight, as well as increasing the rates of infant mortality. Elderly citizens in Bangkok Noi are also at risk, due to them being more prone to suffering from respiratory or cardiac ailments. Common chest or upper respiratory tract infections may develop into more life-threatening or terminal illnesses amongst the elderly, with other comorbidities such as sedentary lifestyle, pre-existing health conditions, obesity, or habits such as smoking lending themselves to making these conditions extensively worse. Lastly, many people can exhibit a hypersensitive disposition towards certain ultrafine particles and other chemicals found in the pollution in Bangkok Noi. As such, all of these groups would do well to stay up to date on the pollution levels, both for the current day as well as the predictions for the coming week. Preventative measures such as wearing fine particle filtering masks and avoiding outdoor activities can aid considerably in reducing more serious side effects.L

What other health problems can occur due to breathing polluted air in Bangkok Noi?

Other health problems that may occur when pollution levels rise excessively in Bangkok Noi include coughing, chest pain and infections, as well as heightened risks of cardiac issues. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may also present itself, with bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma and emphysema being the main illnesses. Skin problems may also occur, along with increased early death rates that can in many cases be directly linked to air pollution exposure.

What harmful chemicals can be found in the air in Bangkok Noi?

Some of the main pollutants that may be found in Bangkok Noi, more prominently during periods of higher US AQI and PM2.5 readings, include the main or most prevalent ones such as nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, ozone, carbon monoxide and both of the particle pollution forms, the aforementioned PM2.5 along with the larger PM10. Other air contaminants include black carbon, silica dust from construction sites or road repairs, microplastics and rubber, finely ground metals, nitrates and sulfates, along with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Some examples on VOCs found in Bangkok Noi include benzene, formaldehyde, toluene and xylene.

What causes pollution levels to be higher in Bangkok Noi?

Polluted air in Bangkok Noi can come from several diverse sources. Car fumes are one of these factors that are always of a certain concern, especially for the surrounding cities and districts of Bangkok, due to the large number of people situated outside of the direct city center, a common phenomenon due to lower property expenses and better quality of life. However, it is inevitable for a large amount of the population in areas such as Bangkok Noi to usually work within the city center of Bangkok, thus causing significant amounts of daily commutes to be made, causing rush hour traffic to give off larger amounts of unsafe particles, clouds of smoke, haze and smog as these vehicles transit out of Bangkok Noi. Older and lower grade vehicles remain prevalent, even though there are many incentives in place to slowly phase them out entirely. This will assist enormously in lowering the pollution levels across major cities of Thailand but may prove much harder to enforce throughout many of the provincial areas, where badly aged motorbikes, cars and trucks are still used. These bygone and low-quality engines leak significantly more noxious oil vapors due to their poor combustion process taking place within the engine, as well as other factors such as use of lower-quality fuel. This induces their exhaust fumes to give out more extensive clouds of dark smoke, loaded with black carbon. Again, vehicles contribute to other forms of particle pollution, with the constant wear and tear set on tire treads giving rise to large amounts of tiny rubber particles entering into the air. From here they can induce a large number of health issues when inhaled, triggering off pre-existing health disorders as well as potentially swarming the bloodstream if their size is small enough, as well as accumulating in the environment and harming assorted ecosystems. Other causes of pollution present in Bangkok Noi comprise smoke and haze from industrial activity, as was cited, with various industrial sites, factories and power plants that rely on the combustion of fuels, or even fossil fuels such as diesel, natural gas and coal to provide their energy needs.
