An association between air pollution and mortality in six U.S. cities.
TLDR
It is suggested that fine-particulate air pollution, or a more complex pollution mixture associated with fine particulate matter, contributes to excess mortality in certain U.S. cities. Expand
A QUANTITATIVE ASSESSMENT OF SOURCE CONTRIBUTIONS TO INHALABLE PARTICULATE MATTER POLLUTION IN METROPOLITAN BOSTON
In this paper, source apportionment techniques are employed to identify and quantify the major particle pollution source classes affecting a monitoring site in metropolitan Boston, MA. A PrincipalExpand
Phthalates, alkylphenols, pesticides, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, and other endocrine-disrupting compounds in indoor air and dust.
TLDR
This study provides a basis for prioritizing toxicology and exposure research for individual EDCs and mixtures and provides new tools for exposure assessment in health studies. Expand
Personal exposure to airborne particles and metals: results from the Particle TEAM study in Riverside, California.
TLDR
The PTEAM Study was the first large-scale probability-based study of personal exposure to particles, suggesting the existence of excess mass near the person, a "personal cloud" that appeared related to personal activities. Expand
Distribution of heavy metals in road dust along an urban-rural gradient in Massachusetts
Human exposures to particulate matter emitted from on-road motor vehicles include complex mixtures of metals from tires, brakes, parts wear and resuspended road dust. The aim of this study was toExpand
Effects of inhalable particles on respiratory health of children.
TLDR
Examination of data from a second cross-sectional assessment of the association of air pollution with chronic respiratory health of children participating in the Six Cities Study of Air Pollution and Health suggests that children with hyperreactive airways may be particularly susceptible to other respiratory symptoms when exposed to these pollutants. Expand
Low flow rate sharp cut impactors for indoor air sampling: design and calibration.
TLDR
Two single round nozzle impactors developed for use in Harvard’s indoor air pollution health study gave erroneous calibration curves due to the sharp cut of the impactors, doublets and triplets in the calibration aerosols, even in small quantities. Expand
Ventilation rates and health: multidisciplinary review of the scientific literature.
TLDR
It is indicated that increasing ventilation rates above currently adopted standards and guidelines should result in reduced prevalence of negative health outcomes, and building operators and designers should avoid low ventilation rates. Expand
Associations of Cognitive Function Scores with Carbon Dioxide, Ventilation, and Volatile Organic Compound Exposures in Office Workers: A Controlled Exposure Study of Green and Conventional Office
TLDR
Cognitive function scores were significantly better under Green+ building conditions than in the Conventional building conditions for all nine functional domains, and have wide-ranging implications because this study was designed to reflect conditions that are commonly encountered every day in many indoor environments. Expand
International Studies of Prenatal Exposure to Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Fetal Growth
TLDR
Prenatal PAH exposure was associated with significantly reduced birth weight in both Krakow Caucasians and in NYC African Americans, and increased susceptibility of NYC African American is suggested. Expand
