BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There have been no multicity studies on the acute effects of air pollution on stroke mortality in China. This study was undertaken to examine the associations between daily stroke mortality and outdoor air pollution (particulate matter <10 μm in aerodynamic diameter, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide) in 8 Chinese cities. METHODS We used Poisson regression models with natural spline-smoothing functions to adjust for long-term and seasonal trends, as well as other… CONTINUE READING
