Health Effects of Smog

People react differently to smog. It depends on how long they are exposed to it and the amount of smog present in the air.

Usually, older adults and those who suffer from cardio-respiratory problems (such as asthma) are most at risk from smog. Children and newborns are also more sensitive to air pollution because their rate of breathing is higher than an adult. People who exercise outside on hot days are also more likely to get sick from smog.
