    Abstract

    When evaluating the modest effects of low concentrations of air pollutants, it is necessary to control the influence of as many variables as possible. In this review, the effects of temperature and humidity, circadian rhythms, gender, and age are discussed. The influence of “adaptation” through repeated ambient exposure or laboratory exposure, or both, is also considered.
