  • RATIONALE Short-term exposure to air pollution has been associated with exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), whereas the role of long-term exposures on the development of COPD is not yet fully understood. OBJECTIVES We assessed the effect of exposure to traffic-related air pollution over 35 years on the incidence of COPD in a prospective cohort study. METHODS We followed 57,053 participants in the Danish Diet, Cancer, and Health cohort in the Hospital Discharge… CONTINUE READING
