Cleaning your hookahs or coal-burning devices is one of the most important aspects of hookah smoking.
It is the primary means to stop the harmful effects of coal dust on the lungs.
However, in recent times, the coal dust has also caused serious health problems, such as lung cancer.
A new report from the Indian Centre for Research on Cancer and Molecular Genetics (ICCRGM) and the University of Southern California, suggests that the coal-dust contamination can cause the same health problems as smoking.
The study, published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, looked at the effects of different combinations of coal chemical formulas and the chemical composition of the air that was inhaled in different states.
The researchers found that the exposure to coal dust in different parts of India was different.
The inhalation of coal-containing chemicals like benzene, which can irritate the lungs, is the biggest risk factor for lung cancer in the study.
“Coal dust has been linked to cancer, but we were able to identify the coal chemical and the coal chemistry of the state where the coal was found to be,” said Dr. Ashish Srivastava, a researcher at the ICCRGM and lead author of the study, which was co-authored by Dr. Rajendra Dutta and Dr. Arjun Ram.
“In India, a lot of people smoke, so the coal exposure is a risk factor.”
Coal dust can enter the lungs through the inhalation and inhalation is the major way of inhaling it.
“We found that coal dust from different parts and states, like Bihar, Bihar, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, and Maharashtra, were associated with different lung cancer risks,” said Srivas.
“The findings are interesting because the coal contamination from different states can be caused by coal dust and not by other chemicals.
Coal dust is a common indoor contaminant.
The more coal dust, the higher the risk.”
Coal Dust Exposure: What to Know How much coal dust is inhaled by the average Indian?
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) defines coal dust as coal particulate matter that enters the lungs and enters the bloodstream.
It has been found to have many health and environmental effects including cancer and respiratory infections.
“If the coal is coming from an industrial process, coal dust can become a toxic chemical that damages human and animal health,” said co-author Dr. N. P. V. Narasimhan, professor of Environmental Health Sciences at the University at Buffalo.
“Therefore, coal is a prime candidate for carcinogenicity, as the inhalational concentration of carcinogens and their toxicities can be greater in a given location.”
The study found that in Bihar, the amount of coal in the air was highest in the north and the lowest in the south.
Coal particles were found to enter the body through the nose and enter the bloodstream through the bronchial tubes, as opposed to entering the lungs via the airway.
In Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, coal was the most prevalent source of coal particles, followed by the dust from coal factories.
The authors said that it is the inhalations that are the most dangerous part of the coal pollution.
“It is important to emphasize that the concentration of inhalable particulates in the lungs is quite low in most parts of the country,” Dr. Narasesimhan said.
“As far as the level of inhalation pollution is concerned, it is much higher in India, where coal dust was found in the highest concentration in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
Coal Dust Contamination: What is Coal Dust?
Coal dust consists of a mix of coal and other materials, which are mixed in a way that is difficult to detect, such like by measuring the particles in air.
It can come from a number of sources including coal-based plants, mines, waste burning and incinerators.
“This has a lot to do with the coal mining practices in India,” he said. “
A coal mine is a primary source of pollution,” said Narasesam, adding that the amount and quality of coal used to make hookahs are often low in India.
“This has a lot to do with the coal mining practices in India,” he said.
The main reasons for the high concentration of coal pollution in India are that coal mining is a major source of carbon emissions and has a detrimental impact on the climate, which contributes to climate change.
In some regions of India, coal mining has been phased out, and a large amount of pollution is now emitted from coal-fired power plants.
“I don’t think coal pollution is a big problem in India; it’s mainly due to a few small states that are producing a lot,” said Rajiv Gandhi, the former prime minister and president of India.
But the problem has been growing in India as coal-power plants have been shut down in some states
