报告摘要:

Air Pollution and Cause-specific Cardiovascular Mortality in Older Unites States Adults

 

Speakers: Yongzhao Shao*, Ph.D., Professor

Department of Population Health

Department of Environmental Medicine

New York University School of Medicine

New York University

 

Ambient air pollution is a modifiable risk factor of greater importance for mortality than low physical activity, high sodium diet, and high cholesterol.  Of all United States federal regulatory standards, compliance forfine particulate matter (PM2.5) avoids the most premature deaths, primarily from cardiovascular disease. This talk will discuss a literature review on adverse health effects related to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and present some new findings from studying a large cohort of senior United States adults. The study design and statistical data analysis will be discussed. This talk is based on joint research projects led by Professors Richard B. Hayes and George Thurston at New York University School of Medicine. This research was supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (1R01ES019584-01A1), as well as by the NYU-NIEHS Center of Excellence (Grant ES00260).
