How do Impacts of Traffic-Related Air Pollution on Health Change?

Repeated measures of inflammation, blood pressure, and heart rate variability associated with traffic exposures in healthy adults (12 page pdf, Jaime E. Mirowsky, Richard E. Peltier, Morton Lippmann, George Thurston, Lung-Chi Chen, Lucas Neas, David Diaz-Sanchez, Robert Laumbach, Jacqueline D. Carter and Terry Gordon. Environmental Health, Aug. 15, 2015)

Elemental and organic carbon and PM2.5 particles were the main cause of these effects.
