Abstract: Both indoor and outdoor air pollution have significant impact and risk for human health. Fossil fuel burning by power stations, chemical industry and motor vehicle emission represent major outdoor air polluting sources which may result in health effects. Outdoor and indoor air pollution have been implicated in the epidemic of asthma and respiratory problems affecting up to 15% of the populations, with some complaints, such as allergic rhinitis, possibly exceeding 50%. Studies in Sicily have confirmed a high prevalence of respiratory diseases. However, while the relation to outdoor pollution was to some extent explored, the role of indoor pollution was not. This project assessed a sample of the Gela communities in the Mediterranean area of south Sicily (Gela, Niscemi, Mazzarino, Butera) for known respiratory diseases, using standardized scientific questionnaires, and making measurements of lung function and level and type of allergies of these populations. Specific measurements of indoor air pollution were made while routine data for outdoor air pollution were obtained. This project aimed to re-assess and compare the situation of respiratory health determining the relationship between exposure to pollutants and health effects, also attempting to establish risk factors related to lifestyle, and the type of pollution, with a special innovative focus on sources of indoor air pollution. Such data will be of importance in planning and regulating sources of both indoor and outdoor air pollution, and taking the necessary measures to reduce the impact on human health.
