Environmental effect on health: Air pollution and smoke
This review has covered a wide range of environmental health problems. Air pollution often caused by presence of the smoke of the exhaust, infant and adult vulnerability, cytokines related to interleukin-33, thymic stromal lymphopoietin, tobacco smoke and neonates, women, and their families, and perinatal outcomes are among the key results. Cases of patients with asthma who frequently present to the emergency department for treatment of acute exacerbations were also covered by this research.
This review has discussed various topics related to environmental health. The major findings highlighted are air pollution, children and adult vulnerability, cytokines related to interleukin-33, thymic stromal lymphopoietin, tobacco smoke related to neonates, women, and their families, and perinatal outcomes. The Emergency Department cases were also highlighted, in relation to asthma and air pollution concentrations within the emergency department, admissions for respiratory effects in paediatrics, and in patients with asthma that often present to the emergency department for treatment for acute exacerbations.

Relevance to ANTISMOG
This research is relevant to ANTISMOG, because ANTISMOG is an open-source process to reliably measure and reduce air pollution from combustion engines.
Air pollution from combustion engines is a significant cause of human diseases, suffering, and premature deaths. While the transition in Mobility and Energy sectors towards low-emission technologies is on-going, ANTISMOG offers a practical, transparent and replicable process, build entirely with solutions available today.
Some of ANTISMOG’s products that help reduce air pollution from combustion engines are B-1 and C-600 hydrogen premix devices. The hydrogen-based technology can be applied to most combustion engines in operation today, as a one-off treatment or as a permanent retrofit installation.
ANTISMOG’s process is a simple, open-source workflow, designed to reliably measure and reduce the exhaust emissions.
- Determine baseline emissions;
- Remove carbon deposits from the internals of the engine and the exhaust with hydrogen;
- Permanent or preventive fuel enhancement with hydrogen;
- Quantify the effect of the treatment and modifications;
