air pollution, overall mortality
DISEASE INTERVENTION COMPARISON RESULTS
N Engl J Med. 2017 06 29;376(26):2513-2522 Cohorts
IN air pollution, overall mortality The Use of
air pollution: fine particulate matter (particles with a mass median aerodynamic diameter of less than 2.5 μm [PM2.5]) and ozone
As Etiologic risk factor
Is useful Than
no or lower pollution
To predict overall mrotality in populations affected: Increases of 10 μg/m3 in PM2.5 and of 10 ppb in ozone were associated with (relative) increases in all-cause mortality of 7.3% and 1.1% respectively
