Inhalation of particulate matter less than 10 mm in diameter (PM10) has a range of implications forrespiratory health. In order to mitigate these effects regulatory bodies have set ambient air qualityguidelines based on the known dose–response relationships between PM10 exposure and health outcomes.However, these data are based almost entirely on PM10 from urban regions, which are typicallydominated by particulates from combustion sources. In contrast, there are limited data on the respiratoryhealth effects of particles from nonurban regions that often contain a high geogenic (earthderived) component. In this narrative review, we summarize the existing evidence for the respiratoryhealth effects of inhalation of geogenic PM10. We outline the impact of physicochemical properties onthe lung response, with a view to identifying gaps in the field.
