Air quality, tobacco smoke, urban crowding and day care: modern menaces and their effects on health.
Pediatr Infect Dis J
S152 - S156.
The known adverse health effects of outdoor air pollution were reduced in the last century by effective legislation and pollution control. Although combustion of biomass fuels in the indoor environment remains a major hazard in developing countries, there has been a change in the nature of the traffic-generated air pollutants in outdoor air in developed countries. The role of day care and siblings in increasing the risk of infection early in life contrasts with protection from allergic disease later.
