Cardiovascular Disease Burden from Ambient Air Pollution in Europe reassessed using a Hazard Ratio Functions

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Conclusion We provide new data based on novel hazard ratio functions suggesting that the health impacts attributable to ambient air pollution in Europe are substantially higher than previously assumed, though subject to considerable uncertainty. Our results imply that replacing fossil fuels by clean, renewable energy sources could substantially reduce the loss of life expectancy from air pollution.
