Abstract
With the growth of population and industry, air pollution problems have become more numerous and present an increasing hazard to public health. There has been little, if any, progress in the elucidation of the causes of acute symptoms leading to fatal effects in air pollution disasters. The Detroit River area health study represents a scientific attempt to determine the effects of prolonged exposure to such contaminants as occur in the atmosphere of a highly industralized region.
