The health effects of airborne fine particles are the subject of government regulation and scientific debate. The aerodynamics of airborne particulate matter, the deposition patterns in the human lung, and the available experimental and epidemiological data on health effects lead us to focus on airborne particulate matter with an aerodynamic mean diameter less than 2.5 microm (PM(2.5)) as the fraction of the particles with the largest impact in health. In this article we present a novel… CONTINUE READING
