Chemical characterization of indoor air of homes from communes in Xuan Wei, China, with high lung cancer mortality rate.
International conference on indoor air quality and climate. Toronto ON (CAN), 1990/07/29.
In a rural county, Xuan Wei, China, the lung cancer mortality rate is among China's highest, especially in women.
This mortality rate is more associated with indoor air burning of smoky coal, as opposed to smokeless coal or wood, for cooking and heating under unvented conditions.
Homes using different fuels from communes with high and low lung cancer mortality rates were sampled for particulate matter (<10 mum) and semivolatile organics.
The fine particles obtained from homes using smoky coal contained highest concentrations of organic matter (>70%), including PAH, followed by homes using wood and smokeless coal.
