■ asthma attacks

■ doctor visits for respiratory infection in young children

■ hospitalization for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

■ heart attacks

■ stroke

■ respiratory, cardiovascular and all-cause mortality (death rates)

Whether or not you are at risk for any of these health e ects depends on your general health and the level of air pollution where you live.
