Impact of stone quarry activities on certain respiratory, haematological and nutrition parameters in children 8-15 years of age compared to children of same age living away from quarries

Journal Title: Medpulse International Journal of Pediatrics - Year 2017, Vol 3, Issue 3

Abstract

Globalization and rapid industrial growth in last few years has resulted in emergence of occupational health related issues. However agriculture is main occupation in India giving employment to 58% of the people. Growing human population, urbanization and large scale industrialization in the country lead to environmental degradation, pollution and occupation related hazards. The incidence of occupation related morbidity and mortality is very high in India. The present study is therefore designed to evaluate the respiratory effect of occupational exposure to dust in children, residing near stone quarry and to compare the respiratory, hematological, nutritional parameters in the children of same age residing away from stone quarry.
