BACKGROUND Air pollution contributes significantly to global increases in mortality, particularly within urban environments. Limited knowledge exists on the mechanisms underlying health effects resulting from exposure to pollutant mixtures similar to those occurring in ambient air. In order to clarify the mechanisms underlying exposure effects,(More)
The complexity of the components and their interactions that characterize children's health and well-being are not adequately captured by current public health paradigms. Children are exposed to combinations of chemical and non-chemical stressors from their built, natural, and social environments at each lifestage throughout their lifecourse. Children's(More)
1583 Research Outdoor air pollution contributes significantly to global increases in mortality, particu larly within urban environments (Brunekreef and Holgate 2002; Burnett et al. 2000). Some health effects of air pollution may occur over time from chronic exposure, as with bronchitis and lung cancer (Brunekreef and Holgate 2002). Other health effects(More)
