Find all the books, read about the author, and more. Particles in Our Air provides a timely and authoritative discussion of what is potentially the most serious pollution problem confronting us at the close of the twentieth century. airborne particles on human health, this volume should be of interest to a wide readership and should constitute an invaluable source book for health professionals, environmentalists, and others working in the field. Dr. Arthur C. Upton, Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Center, Formerly Director, National Cancer Institute).

Particles in Our Air. Exposures and Health Effects. Long before the publication of this invaluable volume, Richard Wilson and John Spengler were among the leaders in drawing constructive worldwide attention to the health effects of minute airborne particles. This volume confirms my earlier view that we have no better teachers on this crucial issue. They have produced a timely, compelling and lucid treatment of a public-health challenge that urgently merits everyone’s attention.

Richard Wilson, John D. Spengler. It is no secret that the burning of fossil fuels causes air pollution and adversely affects the health of the human population. In this book the hypothesis that fossil fuels are the primary culprit is examined in detail, including the nature, generation,.

The adverse health effects of air pollution are observed in. .3. Pope A, Dockery D, Epidemiology of Chronic Health Effects: Cross-Sectional Studies, En: Particles in our air Concentrations and Health Effects Ed, Wilson and Spengler, Harvard University Press 1996:149-167.

The adverse health effects of air pollution are observed in short-term exposures and also for long time exposures (8-9). The World Health Organization conducted a study of burden of disease caused by environmental problems attributed to air pollution effects on respiratory diseases, perinatal conditions and birth defects, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, bronchial obstructive disease and asthma.

It is no secret that the burning of fossil fuels causes air pollution and adversely affects the health of the human population. Over the last 10 years, research has been providing new insight about the health consequences of particulate air pollution. Generated by the use of fossil energy, respirable-sized particles pose a major threat to our environment and health. In this book the hypothesis that fossil fuels are the primary culprit is examined in detail, including the nature, generation, and transport of particulate air pollution. The authors cite studies on animals and epidemiological studies--those showing acute effects soon after exposure and those exhibiting chronic effects decades later--and include models describing mechanisms by which the effects of fine particulates can be induced. Through its probing inquiry, this book makes clear that present levels of air pollution, even in countries with aggressive environmental controls, are a health hazard that must be contended with.
