ABSTRACT: Fine dust or particulate matter (PM) is a hot topic that is regularly encountered in the media recently. However, few people actually know what it really is and by which mechanism it can hamper our health. During this presentation, a brief explanation about sources and mechanisms of fine dust are explained, and several national (Flemish Environment & Health studies) and international studies that investigated the relationship between PM exposure and human health effects will be discussed.
