The PM2.5 continuous exposure affects the hydric state. Rats were subchronically exposed to concentrated PM2.5 (8 weeks, 4 days/week, 5 h/ day). Particulate exposure does not modify the body weight of animals during the eight weeks (a). However, the water consumption (b) and the urinary flow rate (c) increase significantly weekly at the end each exposure week. On boxplot graphyc* indicates statistical differences (p < 0.05)
