The Danger Of The Slow Burn

H ow many times do we wrinkle o ur noses and wonder what that terrib le smell could be? It's usually a sma ll, smoky fire nearby heaped with plast ic bags, bottles and other household was te. Nothing that smells so foul cou ld be good for us, and we' re just beginning to learn how harmf ul the fumes of burning garbage c an be.

Recent research indicat es that burning household garbage at l ow temperatures can have a severe impa ct on the sexual development of childr en. The Lancet, a respected British medic al journal, published an article in M ay 2001 stating that teenage boys livi ng near incinerators had smaller testicles a nd females had smaller breasts than tho se living in rural areas. They can 't yet measure how much of t he stuff you have to breathe in ov er what period of time, but a correlati on has been established.

In the past 40-50 years, male reproducti ve functions have deteriorated measurably worldwide. Dani sh researchers led by Dr. Neils Skakkeba ek call this Testicular Dysgenisis Syndrome (TD S). "TDS may be caused by genet ic or environmental factors or a combinati on of both," states Dr. Skakkebaek. " As the rise in incidence of t he various symptoms of TDS has occurr ed rapidly over few generations, we mu st consider that adverse environmental factors su ch as hormone disrupters could be to blam e." Hormone disrupters, also known as gender-bendi ng chemicals, are compounds used in pain ts, pesticides and detergents that can disru pt natural hormones in the body, causi ng birth defects and other problems in huma ns.

These two studies a re of more than passing interest to us he re in Bali, where fumes from burni ng plastic and contaminated wastewater are pa rt of our daily lives. This resear ch was done in Europe and Nor th America; let's examine it in t he Balinese context. Modern refuse combustors ha ve tall stacks, specially designed combustion chambe rs and high-efficiency flue gas cleaning syste ms that minimize the impact of emissio ns associated with waste combustion. We don 't have these in Bali - garba ge is dumped in landfills, down riv er banks, off the beach at San ur or burned. Open burning is an inefficie nt combustion process and releases significant amoun ts of air pollutants, ash and den se white or black smoke. According to a stu dy done by Penn State's College of Agricultur al Sciences, open household waste fires bu rn at low temperatures and can resu lt in particulate emissions, heavy metal vapo rs, acid gases and other pollutants. Mo st of these are highly toxic a nd some can cause cancer.

T he open burning of residential solid was te in Bali means that toxins a re released at ground level. Unlike incinerat ed waste, fire in a barrel or pi le does not burn hot enough to destr oy the poisonous substances released by burni ng materials. Since there are no safeguar ds to capture the toxins in t he smoke, they are released into t he air. The smoke may include aldehyd es, acids, nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, polycycl ic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), dioxins, furans, oth er organics and volatilised heavy metals. F or example, treated wood wastes may relea se arsenic, PVC plastics may release hydrog en chloride, wood painted with lead-based pain ts may release lead. These pollutants a re all toxic to humans. The a sh from the waste may be contaminat ed with toxic chemicals such as dioxi ns and furans, PAHs, heavy metals a nd other potentially carcinogenic compounds. Some of t he ash will be carried off in to the atmosphere with the smoke plu me, while the rest will remain behi nd after the fire has been extinguish ed, polluting the soil and, potentially, t he groundwater.

The greatest heal th risk from the open burning of garba ge is to those closest to t he fire who may inhale the smo ke. Other individuals on-site and off-site m ay also be affected, depending on facto rs such as the distance to t he fire, exposure duration, amount and ty pe of material burned, individual sensitivity, e tc. The concentration of gases or particulat es and the duration of exposure c an have an acute effect on yo ur level of risk. Emissions from a bu rn become mixed with surrounding air, diluti ng them enough that, in most cas es, you can walk away without a ny obvious side effects. However, some of the se substances can immediately cause eye irritati on, lung irritation, asthma, or restricted breathi ng. Children are most at risk, sin ce they breathe more quickly than adul ts and absorb up to six tim es as much contamination.

A US Environment al Protection Agency study showed that garba ge burned in a barrel or he ap emits twice as much furans, 20 tim es more dioxin and 40 times mo re particulates than professional incineration with a ir pollution controls. Burning plastics, particularly P VC, results in emission of the dead ly poison dioxin. Dioxin is one of t he most toxic chemicals known to m an, and it is released by burni ng common household trash at low temperatur es. Dioxin and other chemicals are total ly invisible, and their health effects a re not immediate. Benzopyrene is another pote nt carcinogen produced by low temperature fir es. Open fire smoke contains 70 par ts per million of carcinogenic benzopyrenes, abo ut 350 times higher than cigarette smo ke.

PVC especially can cau se an immediate health risk. Less immedia te, but more lasting, are the environment al dangers that occur. The ash a nd soot, which may be dispersed by t he wind or leached by water, wi ll contain toxic contaminants. These toxins wi ll then be leached from any a sh remaining at the site. This cou ld lead to the contamination of surfa ce water or ground water, and unquestionab ly to soil contamination.

Th is is all pretty depressing. What c an we do? Be aware of t he hazards. Inform friends and staff. Reali ze that if we are not alrea dy separating and recycling plastics in o ur homes and offices, then we a re part of the problem. Soon I' ll be doing a story on a who le subculture that exists around recycling plast ic here in Bali.

Meanwhi le, if you have testicles or kn ow someone who does, you might wa nt to spread the word as f ar as you can locally. "Shrinking testicl es is just another item in t he growing litany of ailments connected wi th the burning of mixed rubbish," sa id Tara Buakamsri, toxics campaigner for Greenpea ce Southeast Asia, in a recent stateme nt.

My next door neighbo ur has recently refined his waste manageme nt system -- he brings his plast ic bag of garbage into our mutu al parking lot, pours in a jigg er of kerosene and sets it alig ht. Then he stands over it, inhali ng the fumes as he watches t he plastic melt and the tins black en. He'd probably make an interesting ca se study for a researcher with a s et of calipers.

It may be common practice, b ut backyard burning of garbage in op en containers can release dangerous pollutants includi ng dioxins, volatile organic compounds, and partic le pollution.Inhaling or ingesting even small amoun ts of these pollutants can cause ma ny dangerous health problems. Older people, sma ll children, and those with respiratory proble ms are especially vulnerable.
Dioxins can cause wi de range of health problems, including canc er. And ash created by backyard garba ge burning often contains toxic metals su ch as mercury, lead, chromium and arsen ic! stop burning garbage..

The Law of Money vs Ti me. If I asked you, between ti me and money, which one should co me first? Many will definitely choose mon ey. But that's a wrong paradigm. If y ou notice rich people, they focus on reclaimi ng their time. Poor people focus on savi ng money. For example, at a Ta xi stage, someone will waste hours waiti ng for a taxi that will all ow him/her at a lower cost. Ri ch people will use all their mon ey to reclaim time. You can't sta nd at a taxi stage simply becau se you want to save Shs.500 y et you are wasting 30 minutes. Ri ch people will put up with th at extra 500 and save the 30 minut es and square that 500. So t he law states: "In any situation, y ou would rather lose money than lo se time." Another section of the l aw states that never exchange your ti me for money, that's a recipe f or poverty. Rich people tend to p ut their income on a pedestal, a nd they are paid 24-7 whether th ey work or not, poor people a re only paid when they work. So inste ad of working more hours, look f or ways of reducing this hours a nd building multiple streams of passive inco me!
