SICK BUILDING SYNDROME (SBS)
Our wise ancestors who propounded the science of Vastu Shastra gave due consideration to the various factors which ensure beneficial eﬀects of various forces of nature in addition to proper ﬂow of energy inside a premises.
देवालयं वा भवनं मठश्च भानोः करैर्वायुभिरेव भिन्नम् ।
A temple, house or any living space which do not get the morning rays of the sun or do not get the proper blowing of air are considered to be inauspicious. Latest findings due to related scientific researches point a finger towards probable link between diseases and environmental conditions inside a building and have termed this as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS).
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has come up with this idea of Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) as there were excess of complaints and symptoms occurring in certain occupants of non- industrial buildings.
It needs to be clarified here that at this stage of research it is hard to say about the degree of truth in this area of research, but strong suspicion cannot be ruled out that buildings lacking compliance with Vastu rules are in fact 'Sick Buildings'.
General ailments related to SBS are headaches, anxiety, clouded mentality, lack of concentration, asthenia, irritation of the skin or nasal mucosa, problems of the eyes and upper respiratory tract. A temple , house or any living space which do not get the morning rays of the sun or do not get the proper blowing of air are considered to be inauspicious.
Factors to be suspected for SBS: General factors which may be responsible for SBS are the type and rate of ventilation, volatile organic compounds, particles and humidity etc.
SBS May Lead to Lung Cancer: Researchers believe that the indoor air quality (IAQ) is the most important factor and it includes bad odours, harmful chemicals, odd temperatures, humidity and stale air. These in the long run can lead even to cancer.
Indoor air pollution, which releases gases or particles into the air, is the cause of indoor air problems ultimately Vastu Urja is hampered. Inadequate ventilation causes indoor air pollution because bad outdoor air is taken from the indoor air and carries indoor air pollution out of the space. High temperature and high humidity can increase the concentration of some pollutants.
Sources of air pollution
2. Tobacco Products
3. Home Appliances and Furniture such as:
a) Insulation containing degraded asbestos
b) Newly built flooring, flooring or carpets
c) Cabinets or furniture made from pressed wood
- Home cleaning and care, personal care or hobbies

c) Outdoor pollution.
The importance of something depends on the amount of pollution it emits and how dangerous the emissions are. Some factors are important, such as the age of the site and whether it is well maintained. For example, an improperly modified electric stove emits more carbon monoxide than a properly modified one.

- There should be enough windows on the north and east side for light and positive energy to There should not be any obstacles such as poles, high trees etc. in front of the main entrance.
