Premature mortality in schizophrenia: The potential effect of air pollution exposure and urbanicity

It is important to acknowledge that among the considerable proportion of annual preventable premature deaths at the city level dues to air pollution exposure, a significant amount could be related to severe mental disorders such as schizophrenia.

Influence of Selected Air Pollutants on Mortality and Pneumonia Burden in Three Polish Cities over the Years 2011–2018

Poland has one of the worst air qualities in the European Union, particularly regarding concentrations of particulate matter (PM). This study aimed to evaluate the short-term effects of air pollution

Study protocol of the European Urban Burden of Disease Project: a health impact assessment study

The aim of the European Urban Burden of Disease project is to evaluate the health burden and its determinants related to current and future potential urban and transport planning practices and related exposures in European cities and make this evidence available for policy and decision making for healthy and sustainable futures.

Changing trends in the air pollution–related disease burden from 1990 to 2019 and its predicted level in 25 years

In the twenty-first century, exposure to air pollution has become a threat to human health worldwide due to industrial development. Timely, comprehensive, and reliable assessment and prediction of

Health impacts quantification attributed to ambient particulate matter in the nearest Iranian city to the main dust source

The findings indicated that the PM10 and PM2.5 content in Rigan was above standard levels described by WHO, and may be helpful to national and regional policymakers who are responsible for managing and preventing atmospheric contamination and assessing the costs of health risks.

Burden of Disease Due to Ambient Particulate Matter in Germany—Explaining the Differences in the Available Estimates

The environmental burden of disease for the German population associated with PM2.5 exposure in Germany for the years 2010 until 2018 is estimated, and the highest EBD was estimated for ischemic heart disease, followed by lung cancer in 2018.



Urban and Transport Planning Related Exposures and Mortality: A Health Impact Assessment for Cities

The need for the reduction of motorized traffic through the promotion of active and public transport and the provision of green infrastructure is emphasized to provide opportunities for PA and for mitigation of air pollution, noise, and heat.

Air Pollution and Mortality in Seven Million Adults: The Dutch Environmental Longitudinal Study (DUELS)

PM10 associations were robust to adjustment for NO2; NO2 associations remained for nonaccidental mortality and lung cancer mortality after adjustment for PM10, and long-term exposure to PM10 and NO2 was associated withNonaccidental and cause-specific mortality in the Dutch population of ≥ 30 years of age.

Particulate matter-attributable mortality and relationships with carbon dioxide in 250 urban areas worldwide

Across 82 cities globally, PM2.5 concentrations and mortality rates were negatively associated with city gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, but there was no relationship between GDP per capita and CO2 emissions rates.

Air Pollution and Mortality in the Medicare Population

In the entire Medicare population, there was significant evidence of adverse effects related to exposure to PM2.5 and ozone at concentrations below current national standards.

Long-Term Exposure to Urban Air Pollution and Mortality in a Cohort of More than a Million Adults in Rome

This large study strongly supports an effect of long-term exposure to NO2 and PM2.5 on mortality, especially from cardiovascular causes, and is relevant for the next European policy decisions regarding air quality.

PM2.5 source allocation in European cities: A SHERPA modelling study

Outdoor air pollution and the burden of childhood asthma across Europe

A significant proportion of childhood asthma cases across Europe may be attributable to outdoor air pollution and these cases could be prevented, underlying an urgent need to reduce children's exposure to NO2, PM2.5 and black carbon.
