Differential DNA Methylation in Purified Human Blood Cells: Implications for Cell Lineage and Studies on Disease Susceptibility
TLDR
In healthy male blood donors there is important variation in the methylation profiles of whole blood, mononuclear cells, granulocytes, and cells from seven selected purified lineages, indicating that whole blood methylation results might be unintelligible.

TLDR
Collectively, though not separately, these studies show appreciable hazards from residential radon, particularly for smokers and recent ex-smokers, and indicate that it is responsible for about 2% of all deaths from cancer in Europe.

Ambient air pollution and low birthweight: a European cohort study (ESCAPE).
Urban Air Pollution and Lung Cancer in Stockholm
TLDR
It is indicated that urban air pollution increases lung cancer risk and that vehicle emissions may be particularly important.
Long-Term Exposure to Road Traffic Noise and Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
The results lend some support to the hypothesis that long-term exposure to road traffic noise increases the risk for myocardial infarction.
Residential radon and lung cancer--detailed results of a collaborative analysis of individual data on 7148 persons with lung cancer and 14,208 persons without lung cancer from 13 epidemiologic

TLDR
These data provide firm evidence that residential radon acts as a cause of lung cancer in the general population and provide a solid basis for the formulation of policies with which to manage risk from radon and reduce deaths from the most common fatal cancer in Europe.
Hypertension and Exposure to Noise Near Airports: the HYENA Study
TLDR
Excess risks of hypertension related to long-term noise exposure are indicated, primarily for night-time aircraft noise and daily average road traffic noise.
