ABSTRACT
The article reports on most epidemiological studies considering the effects of day-to-day changes in air pollution on daily events such as deaths and hospital admissions. In 1998 the British Committee on Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) quantified the health impact of air pollution as a stepping stone towards determining the cost effectiveness of further pollution control measures. However, they were unable to quantify the impact of long-term exposure for lack of studies.
