As part of the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Burden of Disease Comparative Risk Assessment, the burden of disease attributable to urban ambient air pollution was estimated in terms of deaths and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). Air pollution is associated with a broad spectrum of acute and chronic health effects, the nature of which may vary with the pollutant constituents. Particulate air pollution is consistently and independently related to the most serious effects, including… 

The contribution of outdoor air pollution sources to premature mortality on a global scale

TLDR
It is found that emissions from residential energy use such as heating and cooking, prevalent in India and China, have the largest impact on premature mortality globally, being even more dominant if carbonaceous particles are assumed to be most toxic.

EXPOSURE TO AIR POLLUTION AND RESPIRATORY DISORDERS : AN OVERVIEW

Air pollution continues to pose a significant threat to health worldwide. According to a WHO assessment of the burden of disease due to air pollution, more than two million premature deaths each year

Air pollution and public health in developing countries: Is Sri Lanka different?

TLDR
Although country information is limited, a few epidemiological studies gives the opportunity to understand and compare the Sri Lankan situation vis a vis other countries and several other published studies and preliminary data from ongoing studies are looked at.

Impact of Air Pollution on Public Health

TLDR
The results of a long-term study on influence of common air pollutants on health of US residents showed that individuals living in the more polluted cities had a higher risk of hospitalization and early death from pulmonary and heart disease.

1 Impact of Air Pollution on Public Health

TLDR
The results of a long-term study on influence of common air pollutants on health of US residents showed that individuals living in the more polluted cities had a higher risk of hospitalization and early death from pulmonary and heart disease.

The mechanisms of air pollution and particulate matter in cardiovascular diseases

TLDR
It is demonstrated that short- and long-term exposure to air pollution increases mortality due to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases and appropriate interventions to reduce air pollution may promote great benefits to public health by reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Transboundary health impacts of transported global air pollution and international trade

TLDR
The results reveal that the transboundary health impacts of PM2.5 pollution associated with international trade are greater than those associated with long-distance atmospheric pollutant transport.

Estimation of Short-term Mortality and Morbidity Attributed to Fine Particulate Matter in the Ambient Air of Eight Iranian Cities

TLDR
Air pollution in some selected principal Iranian megacities exceeded national and international air quality standards and even reached levels nearly ten times higher than WHO guidelines in some cities, causing total mortality of 5,670 out of 87,907 during a one-year time-period.

Influence of particulate matter on human health in selected African provinces: mini-review

  • T. W. Bulto

TLDR
Air contamination influenced the human health and environmental well-being of the ecosystem and priority should be given to air quality management to improve the human and environmental health of ecosystems to reduce the global burden of disease of Africa regions.

Lung cancer, cardiopulmonary mortality, and long-term exposure to fine particulate air pollution.

TLDR
Fine particulate and sulfur oxide--related pollution were associated with all-cause, lung cancer, and cardiopulmonary mortality and long-term exposure to combustion-related fine particulate air pollution is an important environmental risk factor for cardiopULmonary and lung cancer mortality.

Comparative quantification of health risks. Global and regional burden of disease attributable to selected major risk factors. Volume 1.

TLDR
This book provides a comprehensive assessment of the scientific evidence on prevalence and hazards, and the resulting health effects, of a range of exposures that are known to be hazardous to human health, including childhood and maternal undernutrition, nutritional and physiological risk factors for adult health, addictive substances, sexual and reproductive health, and risks in the physical environments of households and communities.
