Many epidemiological studies have used house characteristics associated with indoor sources as simplified proxies for personal nitrogen dioxide (NO2) exposure. Stove type and presence of a pilot light often been used as the two key characteristics, but significant overlaps have remained in the NO2 concentrations in the exposed and unexposed groups. This has contributed to inconsistencies in epidemiological findings, due to potential misclassification of exposure. In this study, other possible… CONTINUE READING
