1. Wu EW, et al. (2014). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) In a representative sample of US adults from the combined 2005-2006 and 2007-2008 NHANES cycles, higher levels of blood and urinary cadmium were associated with an increased risk of age-related macular degeneration. race Cadmium | Lead Controls for disease:Macular Degeneration | Subjects with disease:Macular Degeneration | Study subjects United States blood | urine Cadmium | Lead Details Macular Degeneration
2. Kamel F, et al. (2000). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) These results suggest that exposure to some fungicides and insecticides may increase risk of retinal degeneration.

3. Berra M, et al. (2015). In this study, we demonstrated that acute exposure to high levels of air pollution causes tear film instability without remodulation of the ocular surface. Furthermore, the perceptions of symptoms of normal subjects were not severe enough to trigger a visit to the emergency unit.

4. Bowen AB, et al. (2007). Eye and respiratory illnesses were associated with chlorinated indoor swimming pools at two hotels, consistent with exposure to chloramines. Chloramines Study subjects United States Details Eye Diseases | Respiration Disorders
5. No authors listed. (2005). This report describes 28 additional cases of hydrogen cyanamide-related illness that occurred during 2002-2004 in Italy; these illnesses suggest that the preventive measures adopted in 2003 to protect agricultural workers are inadequate.

6. No authors listed. (2001). During Jan-Feb 2001, eight cases of acute illness in the county of Ragusa (Italy) were attributed to exposure to Dormex, a plant growth regulator with hydrogen cyanamide as the active ingredient.

7. Asonye CC, et al. (2004). We report higher particulate concentrations of black carbon correlated with increased prevalence of pollution keratoconjunctivitis among children in oil-producing industrial areas of Nigeria.

8. Lemire M, et al. (2010). For this population in the Brazilian Amazon, where environmental exposure to Mercury is elevated compared with most areas in the world, the prevalence of Age-related Cataracts varied in opposite directions in association with plasma Selenium (P-Se) and blood Mercury (B-Hg). We observed the lowest prevalence for those with high P-Se and low B-Hg, and the highest prevalence for those with high B-Hg and low P-Se levels.

10. Kirrane EF, et al. (2005). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) These findings suggest that exposure to some fungicides and other pesticides may increase the risk of retinal degeneration and warrant further investigation. mancozeb | Maneb | Ziram Study subjects United States Details Agricultural Workers' Diseases | Retinal Degeneration
11. Larrieu S, et al. (2009). Therefore, our aim in this study was to explore the links between daily levels of air pollution indicators (nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and particulate matter less than 10 microns in diameter (PM10)) and daily numbers of medical home visits made for nonsevere reasons, some of which are known to be associated with air pollution (respiratory diseases) and others of which have a less well described association with air pollution (headache, asthenia, conjunctivitis, and skin rash) in this area.

12. Janssen NA, et al. (2003). Our study showed that children attending schools close to motorways with high truck traffic counts in the Netherlands experienced more respiratory symptoms than did children attending schools near motorways with low truck traffic counts.

14. Kponee KZ, et al. (2015). In this cross-sectional pilot study, the first carried out in response to the United Nations Environment Programme recommendations, we observed statistically significant associations between exposure to petroleum-contaminated drinking water and self-reported symptoms consistent with exposure to petroleum hydrocarbons. Petroleum | Water Pollutants, Chemical Study subjects Nigeria Details Anemia | Dermatitis, Irritant | Dizziness | Eye Pain | Headache | Pharyngitis
15. Madison RE, et al. (1991). We measured immunologic biomarkers associated with an acute exposure to exothermic byproducts of a ureaformaldehyde spill and found a statistically significant difference for percent and absolute numbers of CD26 T-cells and autoantibodies to formaldehyde-human serum albumin conjugate. urea formaldehyde foam Study subjects United States air, ambient | snow Formaldehyde Details Conjunctivitis | Cough | Diarrhea | Dizziness | Dyspnea | Epistaxis | Exanthema | Fatigue | Headache | Nausea | Pharyngitis | immunoglobulin production involved in immunoglobulin mediated immune response | T cell differentiation
