Some PAHs contains in products or goods such as gasoline, cigarettes, and cosmetics. (Yu, 2005, pp. 178-180) PAHs are common products of incomplete combustion. (Callesen et al., 2013) As a results, some nature incidents like forest fires and volcanic eruption may product PAHs as well as some human activities such as traffic exhaust, industrial emissions, cooking, and smoking. Respiration and ingestion are the common passageway for PAHs entering into human bodies (Yu, 2005, pp. 178-180). As a groups of chemicals with aromatic rings structures, PAHs has been treated as carcinogenic potentials by humans (Yu, 2005, pp. 178-180), and many of PAHs has been determined carcinogenic effects to animals. In my study, I will research in three facts health effects for children exposure conditions, respiration diseases and asthma, child behaviour and intelligent.
