BACKGROUND Many studies have shown that airborne particles are associated with increased risk of death, but attention has more recently focused on the differential toxicity of particles from different sources. Geographic information system (GIS) approaches have recently been used to improve exposure assessment, particularly for traffic particles, but only for long-term exposure. OBJECTIVES We analyzed approximately 100,000 deaths from all, cardiovascular, and respiratory causes for the years… CONTINUE READING
