Numerous studies have associated acute and chronic exposures to high levels of particulate matter (PM10/2.5) with health outcomes such as increased hospital admissions, increased respiratory/circulatory symptoms, and decreased lung functions. These exposures, which come from a variety of sources such as blowing sand and dust, smoke, vapors, and aerosols, are common in many areas throughout the globe where U.S. military personnel are deployed in support of our national defense.
