Abstract

Epidemiological methods provide opportunities to study interactions of pollutants in complex environments. During the study of health and the environment and the evaluation of particulate matter in Tucson, we found that type, location, and temporality of particulate matter exposures were critical with respect to the various interactions that related to health effects. Indoor particulate matter interacted with other components of particulate matter found in tobacco smoke, as evidenced by lung function. The interaction of environmental tobacco smoke with indoor formaldehyde caused various symptoms. Other interactions occurred between indoor and outdoor forms of particulate matter, which caused symptoms in some of the subjects.
