Respiratory effects of particulate matter air pollution
Studies on diesel exhaust, road tunnel, subway and wood smoke exposure in human subjects
Maria Sehlstedt

"In a study from 2009, the oxidative damage to DNA induced by wood smoke and traffic derived particles was investigated, using human lung epithelial (A549) and monocytic (THP-1) cell lines [82]. The results demonstrated that wood smoke PM caused more DNA damage than the traffic particles, per unit mass. This might indicate that wood smoke exposure is at least as harmful as exposure to engine exhaust emissions."
