Results indicate that combustion particles in the fine fraction from mobile and coal combustion sources, but not fine crustal particles, are associated with increased mortality.

The data suggest that increased daily mortality is specifically associated with particle mass constituents found in the aerodynamic diameter size range under 2.5 urn, that is, with combustion-related particles.
Mapping Community Determinants of Heat Vulnerability
Background The evidence that heat waves can result in both increased deaths and illness is substantial, and concern over this issue is rising because of climate change. Adverse health impacts from…
Low-level lead exposure and children's IQ: a meta-analysis and search for a threshold.

A highly significant association was found between lead exposure and children's IQ and the effect was robust to inclusion or exclusion of the strongest individual studies and to relaxing the age requirements of the meta-analysis.
The National Morbidity, Mortality, and Air Pollution Study. Part II: Morbidity and mortality from air pollution in the United States.
This work has identified an association between daily changes in concentration of ambient particulate matter (PM) and daily number of deaths (mortality) in a number of cities and single location studies in order to produce a summary estimate of the health effects of PM.
The Effect of Fine and Coarse Particulate Air Pollution on Mortality: A National Analysis
An analysis of the acute effect of PM2.5 and PM coarse on the increased risk of death for all causes, cardiovascular disease, myocardial infarction, stroke, and respiratory mortality for the years 1999–2005 concludes that the risks are higher than what was previously observed for PM10.

Evidence was found in each city that the effect of a single day's exposure to PM10 was manifested across several days, and the effect was spread over several days and did not reach zero until 5 days after the exposure.

It is confirmed that particle concentrations in European cities are positively associated with increased numbers of admissions for respiratory diseases and that some of the variation in PM(10) effect estimates between cities can be explained by city characteristics.
