Abstract

The World Health Organization estimates that over 100,000 people die every year from conditions resulting from occupational exposure to asbestos. Similar to this, a significant proportion of asthma and related ill health is driven by poor indoor air quality. Stirling Howieson, Senior Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Strathclyde, takes a look at the increasing prevalence of asthma and asks the question, are our homes making us ill?
