Topic: How does industrial air pollution increase health risks for people with certain lung conditions?

Guest: Dr. Gillian Goobie of the University of Pittsburgh

How Topic Discussed: People with diseases characterized by lung scarring are more likely to die if they live in areas with higher levels of air pollution linked to industrial sources and vehicle traffic, according to a new study led by Pitt scientists. How did researchers distinguish between natural sources of air pollution and industrial sources? What types of air pollution did they examine? What research tools did they use to link sources of pollution to places with a high percentage of people with poor health outcomes? What sorts of lung conditions are likely to be worsened by industrial air pollution? What steps can residents take to become public health advocates?
