How does air pollution affect people?

Air pollution, where severe, can cause serious health effects on a population. If air pollution is severe, you can get eye irritation and/or have trouble breathing. People who smoke or suffer from respiratory problems (such as asthma, lung disease, bronchitis, etc.) are more sensitive. Of course, effects of air pollution will vary for the individual. While air pollution may or may not cause asthma, it is more likely to trigger an attack if you already have asthma (but not as much as an infection or allergen.) Smoking will have a much more serious effect on your health than air pollution. If you give up smoking, you will greatly cut down your risk of lung and heart diseases, and it will make you less likely to suffer effects of air pollution.
