Abstract

To study the association between the cardio-cerebrovascular disease (CVD) and elderly's living environment in China, questionnaires and field measurement were conducted both in urban and rural areas of six cities during winter. On-site interviews showed that all of northern rural houses used Kang and small boiler as heating in winter. Incomplete combustion of fuels caused indoor high pollutants concentration like PM2.5, SVOC, CO and NOx in northern rural areas, as well as daily large temperature steps and long term cold exposure, which may be potential risk for elderly's CVD.
