Associations of Cognitive Function Scores with Carbon Dioxide, Ventilation, and Volatile Organic Compound Exposures in Office Workers: A Controlled Exposure Study of Green and Conventional Office Environments
Cognitive function scores were significantly better under Green+ building conditions than in the Conventional building conditions for all nine functional domains, and have wide-ranging implications because this study was designed to reflect conditions that are commonly encountered every day in many indoor environments.
Respiratory health effects of indoor air pollution.
As the desirable change to clean fuels is unlikely, efforts have been made to use efficient, vented wood or coal stoves, with varied success due to inconsistent acceptance by the community.

The cause, management and prevention of the sick building syndrome have been discussed in this article.
Ventilation and performance in office work.
A quantitative relationship between work performance and ventilation within a wide range of ventilation rates is demonstrated and use of this relationship in ventilation design and feasibility studies may be preferable to the current practice, which ignores the relationship between ventilation and productivity.
The effects of indoor air quality on performance and productivity.

It is shown beyond reasonable doubt that poor indoor air quality in buildings can decrease productivity in addition to causing visitors to express dissatisfaction, and it is usually more energy-efficient to eliminate sources of pollution than to increase outdoor air supply rates.
The effects of outdoor air supply rate in an office on perceived air quality, sick building syndrome (SBS) symptoms and productivity.
This study shows the benefits for health, comfort and productivity of ventilation at rates well above the minimum levels prescribed in existing standards and guidelines and confirms the results of a previous study in the same office when the indoor air quality was improved by decreasing the pollution load while the ventilation remained unchanged.
