Research implicates air pollution exposure as an emerging risk factor for cardiometabolic disease, however few studies have investigated how indoor residential environments, where individuals spend most of their daily time, impacts functional pre-clinical markers of cardiovascular and metabolic health. This study investigated associations between domestic indoor air pollution exposure with sub-clinical cardiometabolic risk markers and found that exposure to typically encountered concentrations of some indoor pollutants, was significantly and adversely associated with several markers of cardiometabolic risk resulting in important implications for public health.
