Air pollution has been estimated as the fourth largest contributor to the global burden of disease. Specifically, cardiopulmonary mortality has consistently been associated with fine particulate air pollution (PM2.5).
The purpose of this study was to estimate cardiopulmonary mortality associations for long-term exposure to PM2.5 species and sources (i.e., components) within the U.S. National Health Interview Survey cohort.
