Jay, Stephen M.D., "Are the Adverse Human Effects of Air Pollution Underestimated in the Literature? Implications for science, medicine and public policy" (2018). Health Supplemental Files. Paper 1.
Researchers have not addressed the question “Are the adverse human effects of air pollution underestimated in the literature?” and to date we lack an answer to it. This scan is a non-scientific review of diseases causally linked to air pollution and reported infrequently in the peer reviewed literature. I think a prospective study of the true estimate of mortality and morbidity and harm of air pollution would confirm current statistics upon which policy decisions are based are underestimated.
