Lung cancer, cardiopulmonary mortality, and long-term exposure to fine particulate air pollution.
Fine particulate and sulfur oxide--related pollution were associated with all-cause, lung cancer, and cardiopulmonary mortality and long-term exposure to combustion-related fine particulate air pollution is an important environmental risk factor for cardiopULmonary and lung cancer mortality.
Extended follow-up and spatial analysis of the American Cancer Society study linking particulate air pollution and mortality.
We conducted an extended follow-up and spatial analysis of the American Cancer Society (ACS) Cancer Prevention Study II (CPS-II) cohort in order to further examine associations between long-term
Cardiovascular Mortality and Long-Term Exposure to Particulate Air Pollution: Epidemiological Evidence of General Pathophysiological Pathways of Disease
Fine particulate air pollution is a risk factor for cause-specific cardiovascular disease mortality via mechanisms that likely include pulmonary and systemic inflammation, accelerated atherosclerosis, and altered cardiac autonomic function.
Long-term ozone exposure and mortality.
In this large study, it was not able to detect an effect of ozone on the risk of death from cardiovascular causes when the concentration of PM(2.5) was taken into account, but a significant increase in the risk from respiratory causes was demonstrated in association with an increase in ozone concentration.
Spatial Analysis of Air Pollution and Mortality in Los Angeles
The results suggest the chronic health effects associated with within-city gradients in exposure to PM2.5 may be even larger than previously reported across metropolitan areas, and nearly 3 times greater than in models relying on comparisons between communities.
Global estimates of mortality associated with long-term exposure to outdoor fine particulate matter
PM2.5 exposure may be related to additional causes of death than the five considered by the GBD and that incorporation of risk information from other, nonoutdoor, particle sources leads to underestimation of disease burden, especially at higher concentrations.
Association between gaseous ambient air pollutants and adverse pregnancy outcomes in Vancouver, Canada.
The association between ambient air pollution and adverse health effects, such as emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and mortality from respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, has been studied

Long-Term Ozone Exposure and Mortality in a Large Prospective Study.
Findings derived from this large-scale prospective study suggest that long-term ambient O3 contributes to risk of respiratory and circulatory mortality and substantial health and environmental benefits may be achieved by implementing further measures aimed at controlling O3 concentrations.
Reanalysis of the Harvard Six Cities Study and the American Cancer Society Study of Particulate Air
Here is disclosed a method of manufacturing building blocks filled with a cured aminoplast resin foam by forming a curable foam, presenting the cavity to and in sealing relationship with one end of a
