The aim of the PLANS EMB program is to investigate whether the pollutants emitted by gas stations affect our physical and cerebral activity. In recent years it has become known that various gas stations around the world are responsible for the emission of dangerous pollutants that have the ability to enter the human body through the pores of the skin and the respiratory tract. Pollution levels around service stations are limited to levels believed to be safe. However, it is important to investigate whether the concentrations of pollutants around gas stations change over time and whether these changes affect us to any extent: from subtle changes in the activity of our body and / or brain to health effects.

The project activities include:

  • Measurements of pollutants that may be present in the urine, saliva or blood of individuals who may be exposed to high levels of pollutants associated with gas station emissions.
  • Electroencephalogram measurement to record the electrical activity of the brain.
  • A series of questionnaires.
  • Measurement of gaseous pollutants by placing special devices in specific parts of the outdoor area (e.g. balconies, courtyards, terraces).
