Original Abstract

Atmospheric particulate matter affects our environment especially human health because it contains many toxic chemical substances (i.e. PAHs and toxic metals) which can cause serious disease. Transition metals generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) which are reactive molecules and free radicals derived from molecular oxygen. ROS concentrations exceeding the antioxidant capacity to neutralize them, lead to health damage through the oxidation of other cellular components and therefore oxidation potential can be an indicator of potential health effects.
