Who does not learn from the past will not succeed in the future. Paul Crutzen, Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry (1995) 1 Introduction 1.1 The complexities of the air pollution protection Economic, industrial and population growth in the world have had a significant impact on urban and rural air quality. Today, air pollution presents a substantial environmental risk, especially in some areas that are frequently exposed to elevated concentrations of toxic air pollutants. Emissions from power generation, industrial sources, traffic and transport vehicles, as well as

DOI 10.1515/REVEH.2011.008 Air pollution: a tale of two countries country with over 17,500 islands and a population of about 230 million people. The country comprises large cities, such as Jakarta, Bandung, and Surabaya, as well as reasonably poor rural villages. About half of the Indonesian population lives in rural areas. In contrast, Australia has one-tenth of the popula- tion of Indonesia and despite its large land mass, nearly 90 % of the Australian population live in

Introduction This article presents a review of recent epidemiologic literature on air pollution and Parkinson’s disease (PD), with an objective to summarize the available information about the associations of several air pollutants with PD. The recent years have seen a growing number of epidemiological studies on the association between air pollution and PD. There is a need for compilation and critical assessment of these results. Based on this assessment, this review also discusses some challenges and outlines several opportunities for future research in this

Introduction Air pollution is one of the single most important environmental entities that put human health at risk. The recent World Health Organization (WHO) report suggests that Delhi is the second most polluted major city in the world based on air pollution monitoring data collected between 2011 and 2015 ( 1 ). Megacity Delhi provides a natural laboratory for understanding the impact of air pollution on human health. It also gives an opportunity to develop preventive and promotive measures for management, prevention, and control of air pollution associated
