OUTDOOR AIR POLLUTION

GEMS Spring Meeting – April 28, 2014
U.S. EPA, RTP Campus

In October 2013, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a specialized agency of the World Health Organization (WHO), evaluated outdoor air pollution and particulate matter as a Group 1 (known) human lung carcinogen.  This symposium will present some of the key data used to support this evaluation as well as some of its implications.
