Specific environmental factors related to mortality risk | Health


MONDAY, June 27, 2022 (HealthDay News) — Several environmental factors show associations with mortality when adjusting for individual risk factors, according to a study published online June 24 in PLOS ONE.

Michael B. Hadley, MD, of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, and colleagues developed a spatial survival model to estimate associations between environmental exposures (ambient air pollution by fine particles; household fuel use and ventilation; proximity to traffic; distance to percutaneous coronary intervention center; socio-economic environment; population density; local land use; and exposure to nocturnal light) and all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in 50,045 people living in a low-income region in Iran.
