Title：Air Pollution and Cause-specific Cardiovascular Mortality in Older Unites States Adults
Abstract：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 for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) avoids the most premature deaths, primarily from cardiovascular disease. This talk will discuss aliterature review on adverse health effects related to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and present some new findings using from studying a large cohort of senior United States adults (NIH-AARP). 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 NYU School of Medicine. This research was supported by a grant to the NYU School of Medicine from the National Institutes of Health (1R01ES019584-01A1), as well as by the NYU-NIEHS Center of Excellence (Grant ES00260).
