1. The short-term effect of heat waves on mortality and its modifiers in China: an analysis from 66 communities.

    Environment International 75:103 (2015) PMID 25461419

    Many studies have reported increased mortality risk associated with heat waves. However, few have assessed the health impacts at a nation scale in a developing country. This study examines the mortality effects of heat waves in China and explores whether the effects are modified by individual-le...
