BACKGROUND The relationship between traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) and risk factors for cardiovascular disease needs to be better understood in order to address the adverse impact of air pollution on human health. OBJECTIVE We examined associations between roadway proximity and traffic exposure zones, as markers of TRAP exposure, and metabolic… CONTINUE READING
