Burning fossil fuels and woods produce toxic PMs 2.5 and 10 mixed with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) which increase risk of cardiovascular diseases and lung cancer. Naphthalene is one of the major PAHs in the PMs (4.5%-13.5%). Inhaled PAHs through ambient air or occupationally exposed are biologically oxidized and excreted primarily by urine. Among various PAH metabolites, the level of urinary 2-naphthol was significantly correlated with PM 2.5 or PM 10 exposure, especially after wood smoke exposure. Burn pit smoke exposure may correlate to various health problems of soldiers.
