Trends in health burden of ambient particulate matter pollution in Iran, 1990–2010: findings from the global burden of disease study 2010

The increase in the DALYs and mortality attributable to PM pollution emphasizes the necessity of the effective interventions for improving air quality, as well as for increasing the public awareness to reduce the exposure of vulnerable age groups to PMpollution.



The global burden of disease: a comprehensive assessment of mortality and disability from diseases injuries and risk factors in 1990 and projected to 2020.

This is the first in a planned series of 10 volumes that will attempt to "summarize epidemiological knowledge about all major conditions and most risk factors" and use historical trends in main determinants to project mortality and disease burden forward to 2020.

Characterizing the Epidemiological Transition in Mexico: National and Subnational Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors

A unique characteristic of the epidemiological transition in Mexico is that overweight and obesity, high blood glucose, and alcohol use are responsible for larger burden of disease than other noncommunicable disease risks such as tobacco smoking.

Comparative quantification of health risks. Global and regional burden of disease attributable to selected major risk factors. Volume 1.

This book provides a comprehensive assessment of the scientific evidence on prevalence and hazards, and the resulting health effects, of a range of exposures that are known to be hazardous to human health, including childhood and maternal undernutrition, nutritional and physiological risk factors for adult health, addictive substances, sexual and reproductive health, and risks in the physical environments of households and communities.

On the comparable quantification of health risks: lessons from the Global Burden of Disease Study.

It is recommended that future assessments should focus on avoidable and attributable burden based on the plausible minimum risk counterfactual distribution of exposure, and four types of distributions of exposure that could be used as thecounterfactual distributions are identified.

The global burden of selected occupational diseases and injury risks: Methodology and summary.

Exposure to occupational hazards accounts for a significant proportion of the global burden of disease and injury, which could be substantially reduced through application of proven risk prevention strategies.
