    Traduction en anglais : Health aspects of indoor air pollutants.

    Due to the high percentage of time spent indoors, indoor exposure to air pollutants substantially contributes to the inhalative exposure of man.

    Only in particular cases present knowledge enables us to show clear causal associations between - usually unspecific - complaints and certain pollutants.

    Thus, emphasis should be focused on prevention.

    Toxicology-based guideline values for indoor air are available for only few pollutants.

    A comparison with descriptive data, e.g. from representative indoor environments without special sources of pollutants, can indicate « unusually high » concentrations in a given room.

    But this may not be misunderstood as a verification of causal relations between exposure and reported health effects in individual cases.
