- ... The olfactory nerve is anatomically susceptible to injury from pollution in inspired air, but there are no large-scale epidemiologic studies investigating this relationship.Cross-sectional study using data from the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project, a representative sample of home-dwelling US adults age 57–85 years. Olfactory function was tested using a validated 5-item odor identifi ...

- ... PURPOSE: Much attention has been focused on the role of elemental carbon or its surrogate black carbon (BC) in PM-mediated toxicity. It is possible that its toxicity is related to the age or origin of the particles. This study presents methods to apportion ambient BC into its regional and local components and, once estimated, characterizes their seasonal and daily variability. METHODS: We estimate ...

- ... Epidemiological studies have shown that residential exposure to livestock odors can affect the health and wellbeing of rural citizens. However, exposure–response models for this relationship have not been developed. One of the main challenges is to identify a compound that can be used as proxy for livestock odor exposure. In this paper we developed models that describe the relationship between lon ...
