Long-term exposure to persistent levels of sulfur dioxide can cause chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and respiratory illness. It can also aggravate existing heart disease.
Prolonged industrial exposure to sulfur dioxide may decrease fertility in men and women.
Short-term exposure to sulfur dioxide can cause stomach pain, menstrual disorders, watery eyes, inhibition of thyroid function, loss of smell, headache, nausea, vomiting, fever, convulsions, and dizziness.

Sulfur dioxide affects the respiratory system, particularly the lungs. Increased amount of SO2 in the air may cause burning of the nose and throat.

The sulfur dioxide mostly affect disease related to respiratory system in mammals and birds.
