BackgroundDaily changes in ambient concentrations of particulate matter, nitrogen oxides and ozone are associated with increased cardiopulmonary morbidity and mortality, with the lungs and their function being a vulnerable target.MethodsTo evaluate the association between daily changes in air pollution and lung function in healthy adults we obtained annual lung function measurements from a routine worker health surveillance program not designed for research purposes. Forced Vital Capacity (FVC… 
Effect of ambient air quality on functional exercise capacity and pulmonary function in healthy young adults
TLDR
Short term ambient air pollution does not affect functional exercise capacity and pulmonary function in young healthy adults, however repeated spells may produce adverse health effects.
Effect of outdoor particulate air pollution on FEV1 in healthy adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Evidence is provided that acute and long-term exposure to outdoor particulate air pollution are associated with decreased FEV1 in healthy adults, and Residual confounding from other risk factors, such as smoking, may explain some of the effect for long- term exposures.
Short-term effects of particle size fractions on lung function of late adolescents
Although ambient air pollution has been linked to reduced lung function in healthy students, longitudinal studies that compare the response of asthmatic and healthy adolescents are lacking. To
Industrial Air Pollution and Respiratory Health Status among Residents in an Industrial Area in Central Italy
TLDR
It is found that, even if at low exposure level, an effect of environmental PM10 exposure from harbour on lung function is found, even in healthy subjects, but not in females.
Exposure to ambient gaseous air pollutants and adult lung function: a systematic review
Abstract Exposure to hazardous air pollutants is identified as most obvious premature mortality factors in the world. Numerous epidemiological studies have estimated exposure to air pollutants may
Exposure to air pollution is associated with adverse cardiopulmonary health effects in international travelers.
TLDR
Exposure to increased levels of PM2.5 in cities abroad caused small but statistically significant acute changes in cardiopulmonary function and respiratory symptoms in healthy young adults, and data suggest that travel-related exposure to increased PM 2.5 adversely impacts cardiopULmonary health, which may be particularly important for travelers with pre-existing respiratory or cardiac disease.

Adult lung function and long-term air pollution exposure. ESCAPE: a multicentre cohort study and meta-analysis
TLDR
It is observed that a 10 μg·m−3 increase in NO2 exposure was associated with lower levels of FEV1, and this study adds to the evidence for an adverse association of ambient air pollution with lung function in adults at very low levels in Europe.
Short-term exposure to air pollution and lung function in the Framingham Heart Study.
TLDR
Short-term exposure to PM2.5, NO2, and O3 within current EPA standards was associated with lower lung function in this cohort of adults.
Long-term exposure to traffic emissions and fine particulate matter and lung function decline in the Framingham heart study.
TLDR
Long-term exposure to traffic and PM2.5, at relatively low levels, was associated with lower FEV1 and FVC and an accelerated rate of lung function decline.
Air pollution exposure and lung function in highly exposed subjects in Beijing, China: a repeated-measure study
TLDR
Selected elemental components of PM2.5 showed effects on lung function that were not found in analyses of particle levels alone, and showed associations with lung function only among truck drivers, and no significant association among office workers.
Particulate matter air pollution and respiratory symptoms in individuals having either asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a European multicentre panel study
BackgroundParticulate matter air pollution has been associated with adverse health effects. The fraction of ambient particles that are mainly responsible for the observed health effects is still a
Respiratory effects of exposure to diesel traffic in persons with asthma.
TLDR
The authors' observations serve as a demonstration and explanation of the epidemiologic evidence that associates the degree of traffic exposure with lung function in asthma.
Respiratory effects of particulate air pollution episodes in former smokers with and without chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a panel study
TLDR
Former smokers with COPD have a distinctive response to particulate air pollution episodes compared to former smokers without airflow obstruction, with increased airway inflammation and respiratory symptoms.
Clinically "small" effects of air pollution on FVC have a large public health impact. Swiss Study on Air Pollution and Lung Disease in Adults (SAPALDIA) - team.
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the public health relevance of apparently "small" effects, using the impact of PM10 on FVC as an example, and an epidemiological estimate of a change in the mean value of the population distribution should not be misinterpreted as an effect on the individual level.

Influence of PM1 and PM2.5 on lung function parameters in healthy schoolchildren—a panel study
TLDR
Small differences in effects estimates per interquartile range (IQR) of PM1 and PM2.5 imply that PM1 was likely the component of PM2,5 that might have a principal health effect on these lung function parameters.
