• #### Annual Ambient Black Carbon Associated with Shorter Telomeres in Elderly Men: Veterans Affairs Normative Aging Study ﻿

(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2010)
Background: Telomere length reflects biological age and is inversely associated with risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Ambient air pollution is associated with CVD, but its effect on telomere length is unknown. Objective: ...
• #### Chimney Stove Intervention to Reduce Long-term Wood Smoke Exposure Lowers Blood Pressure among Guatemalan Women ﻿

(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2007)
Background and Objective: RESPIRE, a randomized trial of an improved cookstove, was conducted in Guatemala to assess health effects of long-term reductions in wood smoke exposure. Given the evidence that ambient particles ...
• #### Diversity of the Gut Microbiota and Eczema in Early Life ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2008)
Background: A modest number of prospective studies of the composition of the intestinal microbiota and eczema in early life have yielded conflicting results. Objective: To examine the relationship between the bacterial ...
• #### Effects of Particulate Air Pollution on Blood Pressure in a Highly Exposed Population in Beijing, China: A Repeated-Measure Study ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2011)
Background: Particulate Matter (PM) exposure is critical in Beijing due to high population density and rapid increase in vehicular traffic. PM effects on blood pressure (BP) have been investigated as a mechanism mediating ...
• #### Intervention to Lower Household Wood Smoke Exposure in Guatemala Reduces ST-Segment Depression on Electrocardiograms ﻿

(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2011)
Background: A large body of evidence suggests that fine particulate matter (PM) air pollution is a cause of cardiovascular disease, but little is known in particular about the cardiovascular effects of indoor air pollution ...
• #### Longitudinal Relationship between Personal CO and Personal $PM_{2.5}$ among Women Cooking with Woodfired Cookstoves in Guatemala ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Household air pollution (HAP) due to solid fuel use is a major public health threat in low-income countries. Most health effects are thought to be related to exposure to the fine particulate matter (PM) component of HAP, ...
