A mainland environment investigation report pointed out that 110 thousand people died per annual, which is directly or indirectly caused by indoor air pollution (i.e.300 ppls/day). Another news article cited from Ming Pao Daily on June 1, 2007, titled with"90% Mainland leukemia children - lived in flats that had finished renovation within 6 months". It described that children's rooms was relatively small, with multi-purpose including resting, studying and leisure. It proportionally required more renovation materials, and more VOCs would be emitted. VOCs are significantly harmful towards human especially children under 6 years old and even fetus.
