My half blind partially deaf 14 year old Shih Tzu came to the same conclusion.

If only he could write they would offer him a job in a government agency.

The study also shows, that Lao Khao seems to be the cause of Liver Cancer.

It's the "liver flukes", or microscopic worms in raw fish dishes up there that make NE Thailand the world leader in liver cancer. The moonshine doesn't help matters.

I thought someone promised to provide clean and purify atmosphere in 7 days time. So what happened still, haven’t got any solutions yet?

Dang! I forget which American Senator said pollution is good for you. I should have saved that comment. I was embarrassed about it.

Whats interesting is that there are people demending government funding and a new taskforce to go out and catch people and put out fires but this already exists. Police, forestry department and army are there to up hold the law and all have the right or i should say duty to stop this and fire brigades are supposed to put out out fires. Its just these idiots are too stupid and lazy. Nothing will ever be done. Stupid government allows continuing burning which serves absolutely no purposes what's so ever apart from killing the population Its insanity!

I wonder if the government believes that the slow killing of people is justified so that just a small group of people can take mushrooms, illegally farm, save time clearing/mulching fields. Seems backwards to me and far more effective to put a bullet in every idiot lighting fires. Who's more important a pathetic undedicated few or the rest...??

Demanding, or dementing?  🙄

Great Article.  I though like others to post a No Shit or .. do you think?  Amazed that they actually paid for a study that concluded - 

“disclosed in the study on geographical inequalities of mortality in Thailand by Suchunya Aungkulanon’s research team, highlighted that health threats from air pollution are real.”  

 

Maybe pay for a study to determine if the sky is blue - oh wait, that might be good data and ironically better since Machine Learning might be able to predict unhealthiness based on the sky color.  Wow sarcasm lead to a good idea.

 

Sadly, issue is labeled a problem or a health threat - not a health crisis.  Since Bangkok has improved from seasons winds, the problem has disappeared.

 

I’m afraid many more people must die or tourism get further crushed before action is taken.  Worse the actions available may not be effective.  Seems like 1 minute to midnight

What the medics don't mention is the extent of the problem in locations like Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai areas. While other locations had a high PM2.5 reading of 150, Chiang Mai was at one stage in excess of 600. This is not just high - it is off the scale.

The result of this study was related to reports about air pollution and asthma by World Health Organisation (WHO) and UN Environment on the occasion of World Asthma Day yesterday, which emphasised that air pollution was the major factor behind the severe asthma situation around the world.

A Thai study presented in 2018 an overview of the state of open burning of agricultural residues and the public health burden in Northern Thailand where the most common way of managing agricultural residues is through open burning:

 

  • In 2016, the level of PM10 in the nine regions Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Lampang, Lamphun, Mae Hong Son, Nan, Phrae, Phayao and Tak were measured at between 68 to 160. The incidence rates of respiratory diseases and allergic rhinitis grew many times compared to those over some years.
  • Health statistics indicated that respiratory diseases rank 5th in the top ten leading causes of death in Thailand in 2005 with 40.1 per 100,000 populations.
  • PM10  air pollutant in urban and rural areas of Thailand has increased to the critical levels since 2006

Amazing news, anyone who is 60+ and comes from England will remember the FOGS of days of your caused in part by the same problem, seems scientists are unable to read the extensive research written then but spent millions writing this rubbish. Anyone with half a brain would know this, yet is seems Thailand generally does not ………………...Oh dear !!
