Consequences of cement plant in a populated community

May 01, 2012 1. Introduction. A cement plant can be an important source of air pollutants. Few studies have focused on the health effects attributable to the emissions of a cement plant on the population living in the proximity (Rovira et al., 2010, Schuhmacher et al., 2004), some of them investigating different outcomes, such as respiratory symptoms (Legator et al., 1998), preterm delivery (Yang et al
