Background: Particulate air pollution’s physical health effects are well known, but associations between particulate matter (PM) exposure and mental illness have not yet been established. However, there is increasing interest in emerging evidence supporting a possible etiological link. Objectives: This systematic review aims to provide a comprehensive overview and synthesis of the epidemiological literature to date by investigating quantitative associations between PM and multiple adverse… Expand
Association between particulate matter air pollution and risk of depression and suicide: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
An increase in ambient PM concentration was strongly associated with an increased risk of depression and suicide, and the associations for depression appeared stronger for smaller particles (PM2.5) and at a long-term time pattern. Expand
Depression and anxiety with exposure to ozone and particulate matter: An epidemiological claims data analysis.
TLDR
It is indicated that increased levels of ambient ozone and PM10 may elevate the risk of a depression or anxiety diagnosis in the general population, however, given the lack of data on individual air pollutant exposure and socioeconomic status, the results should be interpreted with caution. Expand
Association between ambient particulate matter exposure and metabolic syndrome risk: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
There was positive association between long-term PM exposure and MetS risk and a significant association between PM10 exposure and risk of MetS was observed in male proportion ≥50% and calories intake adjustment subgroups, respectively. Expand
Short-term air pollution exposure is associated with lower severity and mixed features of manic episodes in hospitalized bipolar patients: a cross-sectional study in Milan, Italy.
TLDR
It is shown that increasing levels of PM10 move the ME towards the depressive pole of the BD spectrum and augment the probability of hospitalization for ME with mixed components, as mixed features worsen the course of ME and make the management of bipolar patients challenging. Expand
Association of ambient air pollution with depressive and anxiety symptoms in pregnant women: A prospective cohort study.
TLDR
It is indicated that increased levels of particulate matter, NO2, and O3 during pregnancy may elevate the risk of depression or anxiety in pregnant women. Expand
A Scoping Review of Non-Occupational Exposures to Environmental Pollutants and Adult Depression, Anxiety, and Suicide
TLDR
The current literature, although limited, clearly suggests many kinds of environmental exposures may be risk factors for depression, anxiety, and suicide. Expand
Short- and long-term exposure to air pollution and lack of sunlight are associated with an increased risk of depression: A nested case-control study using meteorological data and national sample cohort data.
TLDR
Both short- and long-term exposure to PM10 and CO and a reduced duration of sunshine were related to an increased risk of depression. Expand
Suicide and Associations with Air Pollution and Ambient Temperature: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Suicide risks associated with air pollution did not significantly differ by income level, national suicide rates, or average exposure levels, and research gaps were found for interactions between air pollution and temperature on suicide risks. Expand
Examining air pollution (PM10), mental health and well-being in a representative German sample
There is a growing debate on the role of the physical environment and what constitute risk and protective factors for mental health. Various forms of air pollution have shown links to physical andExpand
Association between short-term ambient air pollution and outpatient visits of anxiety: A hospital-based study in northwestern China.
TLDR
Short-term exposure to ambient air pollutants, especially gaseous air pollutants (NO2 and SO2) can be related to higher risk of anxiety outpatient visits, and an over-dispersed Poisson generalized additive model was applied. Expand
