Combustion emissions, such as those from woodsmoke or coal, are well-documented probable or known human lung carcinogens, and they contribute substantially to the mutagenicity and carcinogenicity of indoor and outdoor air pollution. This presentation reviews 40 years of data on the mutagenicity (in Salmonella and humans) and carcinogenicity (in rodents and humans) of a wide range of combustion emissions. The impact of exposure to these emissions are discussed.
