    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is associated with several risk factors. This course will mainly focus on chemical exposure, particles and combination exposures in the working environment, while also paying attention to other risk factors connected with life style and environment. Possible disease mechanisms will be discussed, in addition to methods used in research in the field.

    Course objectives
    Associations between chemical exposures in workplaces and environment and prevalence of CVD will be presented, and possible explanatory mechanisms will be discussed. Relevant methods for use in research projects, including early markers for CVD, will also be covered.

    Main topics
    • History of pollution and CVD
    • Epidemiology of chemicals and CVD
    • Mechanisms
    • Biomarkers
    • Other risk factors than chemicals
    • Discrepancy between environmental and workplace epidemiology
