    Sammanfattning : Particulate matter (PM) is one of the most studied and problematic pollutants due to its toxicity and relati­vely high concentrations. This thesis aims to clarify the main sources and exposures of PM in Tallinn and Tartu, study the associations with health effects, and estimate the extent of those effects with health impact assessment (HIA).

    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fish consumption; omega-3 fatty acids; eicosapentaenoic acid; docosahexaenoic acid; methylmercury; selenium; lead; cadmium; stroke; myocardial infarction; erythrocytes; food frequency questionnaire; Environmental medicine; Miljömedicin; Epidemiology; epidemiologi; hälso- och sjukvårdsforskning; health services research; medicin; Medicine; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap; näringslära; Nutrition;

    Sammanfattning : The effect of fish consumption on the risk of cardiovascular disease has been extensively studied. Omega-3 fatty acids present in fish, namely eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), have been found to have beneficial effects through several mechanisms. In addition, selenium, an antioxidant, may be protective. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Persistent organochlorine pollutants (POPs), such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) and the insecticide dichloro-diphenyl-dichloro-ethylene (DDT) have been released into the environment mainly since the second World War. POPs accumulate especially in highly ranked predators of the aquatic food chain. LÄS MER
