Abstract

Objective: To investigate changes in blood pressure, lipids, and sugar associated with changes in exposure to ambient air pollution. Methods: We conducted secondary analyses of blood pressure and biochemistry markers from Taiwanese Survey on Prevalence of Hyperglycemia, Hyperlipidemia, and Hypertension and air pollution monitoring data in 2002 by applying generalized additive models. Results: We observed increased particulate matter with aerodynamic diameters
