Abstract:

In connection with the continuous development of various sections of the national economy and the increased number and capacity of industrial enterprises, there has been a rise in the air pollution of industrial cities. Soviet hygienic science, in addition to other problems of health protection of the population, is also concerned with protection of the purity of air in populated places. For over 25 years systematic studies have been con ducted in hygienic institutes and laboratories in regard to air pollution by aerosols and noxious gases of cities and areas where industrial enterprises are located. In regard to gaseous air pollution of cities, the greatest attention has been paid to carbon monoxide fumes and sulfuric anhydride. The effect of carbon monoxide on the organism has been studied by many authors, including Z. G. Volfson 1936 in Moscow and A. S. Lykova 1953 in Leningrad.
