  Air pollution has both acute and chronic effects on respiratory health, affecting a number of different systems and organs.. Air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, ozone, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter affect different parts of the respiratory tract via a variety of mechanisms resulting in respiratory symptoms.. Air quality affects everyone, but .   Indoor air pollution (IAP) is a major contributor to the global burden of disease and is the second biggest environmental contributor to ill health worldwide. 1 IAP is an important contributor to acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI), such as pneumonia, in children. Of course, the burden of disease due to IAP is disproportionately borne by children in developing .

INTRODUCTION. Indoor air pollution (IAP) is a key contributor to the global burden of disease[1,2].There is convincing evidence of the adverse effects of IAP on human health, children being one of the most vulnerable groups[].The respiratory system is a primary target for air pollutants resulting in a wide range of acute and chronic effects[].

Air pollutants mainly come from the discharges of gases and particles, mostly from industry, motor vehicles and domestic solid fuel pollution contributes to environmental issues as well as health problems, especially for people suffering from existing respiratory conditions, such as asthmatics, and for children and frail older people.

The group also raised concerns the tunnel would bring more traffic and pollution to the 80 per cent black and minority area of Newham, which already struggles with air quality issues.

promotion of respiratory health must be a top priority in global decision-making in the health sector. These goals are achievable, and the control, prevention and cure of respiratory diseases are among the most important cost-effective health interventions available.
