Numerous studies have reported associations between airborne particles and a range of respiratory outcomes from symptoms to mortality. Current attention has been focused on the characteristics of these particles responsible for the adverse health effects. We have reanalyzed three recent longitudinal diary studies to examine the relative contributions of fine and coarse particles on respiratory symptoms and peak expiratory flow in schoolchildren. In the Harvard Six Cities Diary Study, lower… CONTINUE READING
