This book offers an overview of our current understanding of air pollution health risks and how this knowledge is being used in the regulatory, therapeutic intervention measures to protect the public health and reduce the disease burden caused by acute and long-term exposure to air pollutants. Air Pollution and Health Effects provides readers. Dockery DW, Pope CA, 3rd, Xu X, Spengler JD, Ware JH, Fay ME, Ferris BG, Jr, Speizer FE.

Long-Term Effects of Air Pollution Air pollution is a growing concern for millions of Indians, especially those who live in or near big metropolises. Urban sources of pollution such as cars, factories, and power generators release a lot of pollutants into the atmosphere. Even small doses and short exposure times to pollutants can bring on an asthma attack or worsen a preexisting condition. Short term effects of pollution include eye, nose and throat irritation, bronchitis and pneumonia, asthma and emphysema and allergic reactions. In some cases, pollution can exacerbate pulmonary issues that can lead to death.
5. Health Effects of Air Pollutants Detected at Joint Base Balad. As discussed in Chapter 4, the committee found the air monitoring data gathered at Joint Base Balad (JBB) in and to be useful for identifying the major air pollutants and their sources in and around Chapter 5, the committee begins its assessment of the potential long-term health effects associated with . Long term effects on health that have been linked to air pollution include emphysema, lung cancer, and heart disease. describe two ways in which indoor air pollution can be prevented Ventilation or mixing outdoor air with indoor air, is necessary for good air quality indoors. Air pollution is a mix of particles and gases that can reach harmful concentrations both outside and indoors. Its effects can range from higher disease risks to rising temperatures. Soot, smoke. Describe three possible short-term effects and long-term effects of air pollution on human health. Three possible short-term effects are headache, nausea, and tightness in the chest. Three possible long-term effects are emphysema, lung cancer, and heart disease.
Daniel Vallero, in Fundamentals of Air Pollution (Fifth Edition), Respiratory Health Effects. Air pollutants cause many respiratory diseases, both acute and chronic. Acute diseases include a range from mild irritations to inflammation to allergic reactions to impaired lung function to complete respiratory failure depending on the level of exposure. For that reason research is now under way to assess the long-term effects of chronic exposure to low levels of air pollution—what most people experience—as well as to determine how air pollutants interact with one another in the body and with physical factors such as nutrition, stress, alcohol, cigarette smoking, and common medicines. Less is known about the mechanism by which long-term exposure to gaseous pollutants may contribute to CVD and other health endpoints, especially cardiometabolic, cerebrovascular, and neurological endpoints, or the mechanisms by which co-exposures to gaseous pollutants may modify the effects of PM on CVD. In light of its assessment of health effects that may result from exposure to air pollutants detected at JBB and its review of the literature on long-term health effects in surrogate populations, the committee is unable to say whether long-term health effects are likely to result from exposure to emissions from the burn pit at JBB.
