This Second Edition
  • offers a current and timely review of the effects of ambient air pollution on the human cardiopulmonary system
  • provides new chapters on particulate matter (PM) air pollution, including particulate dosimetry of the respiratory system, genetic factors in the cardiopulmonary response to PM, PM-induced airway remodeling, and combustion emissions and their relation to cancer
  • furnishes sections by chapter contributors with in-depth expertise in various areas of indoor and outdoor air pollution research
  • maintains a balance between traditional topics and the review of current information showcasing the growing interest in the neuronal and cardiovascular effects that result from the exposure of human populations to PM air pollution
  • crosses several scientific disciplines including epidemiology, toxicology, physiology, and public health
  • presents the evolution of federal legislation and standards for air pollution emissions including the scientific rationale for these regulations
Emphasizing the impact of air toxins and contaminants on human health, this Second Edition examines the latest research from the epidemiology to the cellular mechanisms underlying cardiopulmonary responses to air pollution. This guide offers chapters that address the basic biology, techniques, and clinical practices used to monitor and assess acute and chronic pollutant responses; the effects of specific air toxins and contaminants on various populations chronically exposed to these compounds; and the complex issues associated with translating science to public health policy.
