Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In order to clarify the association between the indoor environment of residential buildings and cerebrovascular disease, an epidemiological survey of approximately 188 elderly persons living in three rural areas of Japan was conducted. The death rate due to cerebrovascular disease of these towns ranges from 1.6 times to half of the national average. Results indicate that poor quality of the indoor thermal environment during winter could increase the risk of cerebrovascular disease.
