Health Effects of Air Pollution among Residents of Delhi: A Systematic Review
A more comprehensive research construing long term effect of air pollution on human health is warranted for advocating policy or guidelines for measuring and understanding the harmful effects and also for the control of air air pollution.
Enacting toxicity: epidemiology and the study of air pollution for public health
It is argued how contemplating health through the lens of the material dimensions of time allows public health to, first, view health problems as constituted through bodies and environments, rather than as a relation separating the two; and second, open up indeterminacies and uncertainties as a generative condition of air pollution, and perhaps public health more generally.
Quantifying Air Pollution Vulnerability and its Distributional Consequences
This paper estimates Vulnerability Index of air pollution in Delhi taking into account exposure, susceptibility and coping capacity of households. A general health production function model and a
Development of Vulnerability Framework for Assessing the Air Pollution-Related Health Impacts in Four Districts of Delhi, India
Air pollution and its deleterious public health risks are a major concern across the world. It is one of the leading health risk factors causing high mortality and disease burden in many cities.

This commentary addresses some of the diverse questions of current interest with regard to the health effects of air pollution, including exposure-response relationships, toxicity of inhaled
Subpopulations at increased risk of adverse health outcomes from air pollution
It seems clear that epidemiological research on susceptibility in the future should investigate the underlying biological and physiological mechanisms, in addition to the environmental and toxicological effects.

Air pollution and mortality in São Paulo, Brazil: Effects of multiple pollutants and analysis of susceptible populations
Positive, significant associations between pollutants and mortality were observed for in-hospital deaths, but evidence of differences in air pollution-related mortality risk by location at time of death was not strong.
Susceptibility to air pollution effects on mortality in Seoul, Korea: A case-crossover analysis of individual-level effect modifiers
Investigation of susceptibility to air pollutants in Seoul, Korea for the period 2000–2007 provides evidence that some populations are more susceptible to the effects of air pollution than others, which has implications for public policy and risk assessment for susceptible subpopulation.
Short-Term Effects of Nitrogen Dioxide on Mortality and Susceptibility Factors in 10 Italian Cities: The EpiAir Study
The results suggest significant and likely independent effects of NO2 on natural, cardiac, and respiratory mortality, particularly among subjects with specific cardiovascular preexisting chronic conditions and diabetes.
Correction: Neighbourhood Characteristics and Long-Term Air Pollution Levels Modify the Association between the Short-Term Nitrogen Dioxide Concentrations and All-Cause Mortality in Paris
This work explored the effect modification of socioeconomic status, long-term NO2 ambient air concentrations, and both combined, on the association between short-term exposure to NO2 and all-cause mortality in Paris (France).
Short-term effects of nitrogen dioxide on mortality: an analysis within the APHEA project
The results of this large study are consistent with an independent effect of nitrogen dioxide on mortality, but the role ofnitrogen dioxide as a surrogate of other unmeasured pollutants cannot be completely ruled out.

The need for a focus on air pollution research in the elderly
The generation of an understanding of air pollution effects in the elderly, at an elevated level, is a prerequisite to substantially reducing the adverse health effects of this population group.
