HOW BAD VENTILATION OPENS BAD DOORS.
Major consideration is given to cross ventilation only when we talk of suffocation; but many other harms are also caused to the body and the environment through little or no cross ventilation.
In big cities, where we have congestion of people, house are built mouth to mouth, which makes it possible for someone to jump from a building to another; do you think it's possible to have fresh air? Same also in rural areas, because of their low standard and willingness to increase their income, they prefer to manage their lands to build shops close to their houses, at the detriment of their lives; do we say the devil is at work when we suffocate to death at night?
Similarly, students also make use of their windows as a shoe rack; blocking the blessing and the soothing cozy breeze from enchanting their body while asleep in hostels; do we also blame the management for those plights?
Ignorance they say, is a disease: but what do we call the enlightened who still thinks ignorantly?. Preaching about what window is, will be a waste of words, because you could have just blocked it off if you think it's worthless. Why do you think we sweat when shot of breeze? Why taking off your clothes during hamathan evenings? Because the human system requires a high level of oxygen, which the air servers as the carrier to cool our body temperature and ease all working systems in the body.
Further more, just as the air brings good tidings to us, same does it takes bad ones away. With instances of highly congested area, place or room; there is possibly going to be 70% risk of contacting air-borne diseases. Assuming a tuberculosis infected victim coughed into the air, and there isn't sufficient air to diffuse it, majorly all persons with the victim are liable to be potential victims.
Over heating of the body also results from the effect of poor ventilation. The body needs a certain level of temperature, which varies from person to person, for it perform at its best. Even from the physical sense, people in such conditions tends to get frustrated easily and react violently, when in the peck of the situation. Phycologist also states that the brain also needs constant breeze to perform at its best. The brain which is said to be the engine room of the body must remain cool always to avoid brain disorder. Reasons why we have creative writers and free thinkers, go to breeze filled regions, beside rivers, gardens, not only to get inspired, but to have a cool atmosphere.
Risking bad ventilation also means risking the chances of having skin to skin disease or skin rashes. Since there is little or no ventilation, heat will surely surface, which in turn draws out sweat from our skin pulse. The coming in contact with an infected person, makes the others laible to same infection. Rashes comes to develop with the presence of constant heat that burns some cells, which then stores on our skin to form rashes.
In conclusion, the scripture also indirectly states the usefulness of breeze, when it was recorded that God spoke in a cool breeze. We might hang most blames on our authorities, but this is our life, we can apply self help principle, by making lives comfortable for ourselves and increasing our lifespan by the works of our hands.
