      From smog hanging over cities to smoke inside the home, air pollution poses a major threat to health and climate. The combined effects of ambient (outdoor) and household air pollution cause about 7 million premature deaths every year, largely as a result of increased mortality from stroke, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer and acute respiratory infections. Effects of Smog. Smog causes health problems affecting the respiratory system. There is an increase in Asthma, Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)and lung cancer; It causes eye irritation; It breaks down natural immunity of the body, and makes it prone to colds and lung infections.

      The Great Smog of London, or Great Smog of , was a severe air-pollution event that affected the British capital of London in early December A period of unusually cold weather, combined with an anticyclone and windless conditions, collected airborne pollutants—mostly arising from the use of coal—to form a thick layer of smog over the city.

Reports the findings of a group of experts commissioned to evaluate the acute short-term effects on health caused by exposure to air pollutants during episodes of smog.

Winter- and summer-type smog exposures are considered separately.

Regional Office for Europe.;]. Publisher Summary. This introductory chapter discusses the effect of air pollution on human population. The development of epidemiological studies can be properly dated from the London episode; it was natural to ask the question of what effects, other than acute mortality, the air pollution.

Respiratory health effects The respiratory tract is the portal of entry of air pollutants, and thus the lung is the first organ affected. The range of respiratory diseases that can be caused by air pollution exposure is large. Studies on the health impacts of air pollution differentiate between acute and chronic effects.

Prolonged exposure to air pollution can have permanent health effects with accelerated ageing of lungs, loss of lung capacity and function, development of diseases and a shortened life span. Children under 14 are especially vulnerable to air pollution.

This publication will tell you what kinds of health effects ozone can cause, when you should be concerned, and what you can do to avoid dangerous.

During the episode 43% of population experienced the effect from smog. 17% were moderately affected and 10% were severely affected humans and nearly animals killed during the incidentautopsy results showing fluorine levels in victims in the lethal range, as much as 20 times higher than ne gas generated in.

The New York City smog was a major air-pollution episode, during which the city's air became filled with damaging levels of several toxic covered the city and its surrounding area from November 23 to 26, coinciding with that year's Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

It was the third major smog in New York City, following events of similar scale in and of acute air pollution episodes in many cities worldwide. As a result, data on air quality is becoming increasingly available and the science underlying the related health impacts is also evolving rapidly.

To date, air pollution – both ambient (outdoor) and household (indoor) – is the biggest envi. Abstract. Aims Episodes of increased air pollution are associated with increases in hospital admissions for cardiovascular disease.

Even modest acute phase responses are associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease. The study investigates whether induction of an acute phase response by exposure to air pollution may contribute to cardiovascular pathology.

The acute effect of particulate air pollution results in changes in respiratory health status and depicts several respiratory symptoms. The symptoms are often recorded into upper respiratory symptoms such as stuffy or running nose, sinusitis, sore throat, wet cough, head cold, hay fever and burning or red eyes.

We aimed to study the possible effects of exposure to a summer smog episode on the respiratory health of school children.

Furthermore, the suitability of the forced oscillation technique (FOT) to demonstrate such effects was evaluated. Acute respiratory symptoms were evaluated by questionnaire and lung function was assessed by spirometry and respiratory impedance measurements.

USC’s Children’s Health Study has studied the long-term effects of air pollution on children over the past 25 years and found that kids who move to areas with lower levels of pollution have improved lung function growth and rly, scientists have found that as the air pollution levels in Southern California have dropped, so too have rates of bronchitic symptoms such as.Severe winter air pollution episodes in the past have been associated with serious health effects, such as increas-ed hospital admissions and mortality [1].
