||The U.S. Clean Air Act provides the first systematic approach to evaluate health effects of air pollution. Tools used to assess health effects of environmental pollution include epidemiology and clinical environmental research. In planning a research strategy, four primary points should be included: (1) Define the most likely clinical changes associated with known or suspected mechanisms or toxicity. (2) Describe the concentrations and distribution of the most toxic environmental agent in the biosphere. (3) Describe fully the population at risk and (4) Evaluate potential costressors.
