Smog is a serious problem because it is harmful for health especially for children, elderly, and for people with heart and lung conditions like asthma and bronchitis. It can cause It can cause Eye. Ozone at ground level is a harmful air pollutant, because of its effects on people and the environment, and it is the main ingredient in “smog.” Breathing ozone can trigger a variety of health problems, particularly for children, the elderly, and people of all ages who have lung diseases such as asthma.

When inhaled— even at very low levels— ozone can cause a number of respiratory health effects. In fact, breathing smoggy air can be hazardous because smog contains ozone, a pollutant that can harm our health when there are elevated levels in the air we breathe. The biggest health threat from smoke is from fine particles.

These microscopic particles can penetrate deep into your lungs. They can cause a range of health problems, from burning eyes and a runny nose to aggravated chronic heart and lung diseases. Exposure to particle pollution is even linked to premature death.

Smog can cause or aggravate health problems such as asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis and other respiratory problems as well as eye irritation and reduced resistance to colds and lung infections. The ozone in smog also inhibits plant growth and can cause widespread damage to crops and forests. High levels of smoke pollution from a wildfire can affect even healthy lungs, doctors say.

Here are the health effects to know, plus how to protect yourself. Smog—also called ground-level ozone—is what happens when nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds, like those in tailpipe emissions, meet sunlight. It’s not good for you or your respiratory. Irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. Damage to reproductive organs.

Harm to the liver, spleen and blood. Nervous system damage. Urban populations are more exposed to suffer the effects of air pollution and, in this context, people who are already ill are particularly vulnerable, as are children and the elderly.

Health Effects of Smog. Smog is well known for causing irritation in the eye.


p> At least two distinct types of smog are recognized: sulfurous smog and photochemical smog. This variety of fog later came to be known as Air pollution reached a crisis in the 19th century with the spread of the The Great Smog of 1952 was a pea-souper of unprecedented severity, induced by both. Smog forms when particles of dust, smoke, industrial emissions, or other pollutants mingle with water droplets in the atmosphere.

Because it is heavier than smoke or fog alone, it tends to collect in valleys and hollows. Smog can, in fact, be harmful to your health. 1. Ozone.

List of related literature:

Many experienced physicians are firmly convinced that smog is also an insidious influence on patients with heart disease, asthma, allergies, and many other chronic sicknesses.

  • The Crowd Nah that’s not happening. God is too jealous to just give Brandon winning lottery numbers in a vision or dream. That’s too easy, but you never know that’s the point.

  • its not smog its from chemtrails being sprayed on us every day look up chemtrails on you tube

  • This is the first time I ever heard of an anticyclone. Does Britain get these often and what is it like. This sort of weather phenomenon does not seem to happen in the central USA.

  • question is staring at a screen for long periods of time harmful to our eyes or is this just a grown up exuse to get us of these devices, and another question what effects do video games have (same vid maybey)

  • I was living in Utah (US) something like 15 years ago and Salt Lake City had just terrible air conditions. I wasn’t living there, but drove up a few times and it was so strange seeing how bad it was, but then you realize that the city is buffered by mountains and surrounded by desert AND lacked a buttload of trees and it all just hung there in the town.

  • I live in Australia, which is one of the biggest polluters per capita on earth, at least in terms of developed countries. This is because of our right wing government’s love affair with coal fired power stations, and a knee-jerk ban on nuclear power after TMI and chernobyl happened. I believe that’s the reason but I’m not sure. Either way, we only have 26 million people in a country the size of the united states. So pollution is never really a problem. So little of a problem that there is no emissions test for vehicles, which means that we have loads of old diesel vehicles on the roads, which stink to high heaven and cause more deaths and hospitalizations than car crashes. But you never see ads on TV targeting old cars that are no longer roadworthy.

    If we switched to nuclear generation, we’d go from one of the worst per capita polluters to one of the best overnight. If the power stations were to all come online at the same time, it would be literally overnight. The prior right wing government said they would build nuclear power stations, which I was all for. I’m not a wingnut, but I’m all for nuclear. 100%. Unfortunately they’re so in love with coal now that they seem to have forgotten that there’s even a problem.

  • This man could’ve fed us bangers for years to come. These punks robbed us from some straight fire music. He was gonna reach the top no doubt.

  • I starter listen to Pop after his death….I’m OG rap fan…but Pops music is way to good even for a oh fan like me I show some respect! RIP POP ������

  • so, basically, it doesnt,but because people have alot of assumptions and stuff we think it causes harm, wow people really are dumb

  • A light bulb gives off a higher frequency than a phone does. The sun is even higher. People who sunbathe and spend all day outside say that phones give cancer when they are the ones who are bathing in radiation that has a much higher frequency. The fake news of phones giving cancer may just be a ploy for a certain group of people to gain more power because less technology use means less knowledge of what is happening in the world. Just read 1984 to get an idea of what I mean. Or just look at the countries who have governments that suppresses info on the internet by banning sites like Google and YouTube.

    Honestly, if I planned to take control of a country, I would use the placebo and nocebo effects to brainwash the population too. Ruling over uneducated and gullible citizens who are afraid of the very devices that give them power would be a peace of cake because they would believe almost anything I would tell them.

  • Im sad to say i never heard of this dude until the day he got killed, im from NY and grew up in the 90s/early 2000s when rappers were real gangstas, i was a straight die hard hip hop head! But around 2010 when everything turned soft and rappers turned gay i stopped paying attention to rap music. Dude was a real one from NYC with a classic gritty NY sound, something we havent had in a while, im mad im just now becoming a fan. C.I.P Pop

  • here i am,learning about phones even though i know damn well ill never get one or want to get one. (dont worry i dont hate phones for some stupid reason i just think theres much much better things.)

  • Read “shunghite” by Regina Martino.. Read “The invisible rainbow” by Arthur Furstenberg.. Im beginning to believe this channel is for brainwashed sheep, too lazy to do they’re own research. This paid shill is giving brief insubstantial information on how these potential harmful devices/gmo’s etc haven’t been strategically placed to cause sickness and disease. Oh and a great unbiased source GOOGLE!!! LOL!! Ur all being lied to or this dude doesn’t do any research! Please look deeper family, no 10min video is gonna drop any truth.. Sorry and your welcome.

  • Graz has rather bad air I think…
    Maybe not as bad as London but just from living in the inner city for a few years can give you a smoler’s lung…

  • Obviously what I have to offer God & the rest of the world is not good enough so I would rather just do my own thing, but their not getting over on me & I hate waiting around for anything. I’m just going to curse them & keep it moving. I can’t please everybody. Genesis 12:3

  • I complain about the pollution where I live, but 1400 people can only fuck up the environment so much. We might have a lot of leftover coal duff, and cars in our waterways, but I can breath without a second thought about it. If only I could say the same about the water:P

  • I’m from Southern California. Born in 1983. I lived in Riverside until I was seven years old. I remember the smog. One summer, several “first stage smog alerts” were called. I recall my mom keeping me indoors on those days. I also remember what the smog looked like. It was this grey-yellow mist or fog, which limited visibility severely. Not as bad as what is described in this video, but still bad. I also remember the smell. It was a sulfuric type of smell, like rotten eggs. Fortunately, my parents moved our family to the mountains shortly after I had turned seven, a mile above sea level; and California has since cleaned up its act. But I am pretty sure I received some sort of lung damage from that shit air I grew up with.

  • Heard this guy for the first time and thought damn, reminds me of Shyne/Biggie love the heavy voice. Gone too soon. ����‍♀️ RIP Young Brother

  • Do yourself a favour mate, don’t believe and then repeat the Govt line on this. 1. The British Govt was hiding the fact they were bankrupt from the British people and trying to trade their way out by selling the better quality coal to overseas interest leaving the poor quality coal for domestic purposes. 2. You make no mention of the fact that the industrial stacks that belched smog out of their chimneys all along the Thames played a big part. 3. The British Govt was well aware of the dangers of smog since the late 40s but chose to ignore the advice. So there you go, the real story, how hard was that. Lift your game mate and do some proper research.

  • I don’t think Radiation emitted by electronics will hurt, just imagine it, if it really were hurting you then we would be dead upon exposure to Visible light

  • I just learned about the London Smog reading the wonderful book full of true stories called “Call the Midwife” She wrote in her book how she needed to get to a 26 week pregnant woman who had tripped and fallen while getting her laundry off the line because of the fog and received a concussion as well as went into labour. The fog was so thick that she couldn’t see to ride her bike even with the high beam light on it. So she had to have one policeman with his bike and light in front of her and one behind so she wouldn’t get lost. They tried to call Drs and ambulances, but they were all out on calls, mostly helping the elderly and those with breathing difficulties, not to mention the delay because of the fog. So she ended up having to deal with it all on her own, as well as saved the 1.5 pound baby.

  • 2 Pac & Pop Smoke have been removed from my Every Dog has It’z Day novel playlist. Brandon in the front now. They dead. I’m still alive. Fuck outta here

  • It was NOT called The Great Smog at the time or for many years. It was merely the fog. Look at the news clippings in the video. Never mentions smog. Just “London fog”.

  • I just realized that this is where the pea soup fog from “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” came from. That’s a disturbingly dark origin.

  • Most of these females don’t know the game. They suppose to try to better me. I didn’t know the Limited Edition was available for sale that’s that scheming shit Jeff Bezos tried to pull to put money in his pocket. lol. It didn’t work I’m shutting that down within the next 24 hours. Here’s a preview.

  • This channel does a amazing job on all of their videos I can’t believe he doesn’t have more subscribers and get more views because he really deserves it great job love your vids

  • Could your phone hurt you? Yes: There are people dying because of health problems caused by no sleep and literally people who dropped it in the bathtub.

  • I don’t live in a city. I live about 5 miles from a town called Newcastleton in the Scottish borders but if you go into that town on a cold day or night you can feel cancer entering your lungs. Don’t forget some places in the UK still don’t have mains water, gas or council sewage systems.

  • London may be fine now, but, as the industrialization of china is going on, industrial pollutants coming from that got damn land is making the sky of South Korea get dustier and dustier year by year, thanks to the fucking wind that blows to eastward.

  • My brother was born Dec 1 London hospital 1952 He’s still alive and kicking and so am I. I was born January the same year. Needless to say mum didn’t have any more.����Too flamin’ close together.

  • I live in OKC. Just last week we were shrouded in smoke from one of the largest wildfires in history in the western part of the state, 150 miles to the west. The wind that exacerbated the fire also carried its smoke across the state.

  • um… there are studies, and there is evidence. There is the baby with a cell thingy near it. They couldn’t figure out what was going on… then they figured it out. It’s that there just isn’t enough of these.

  • Oh my goodness it’s the power station that’s on the cover of Pink Floyd “Animals” and it appears that a pig is flying in the photo. Awesome! 1:21

  • 7 or 8 million of us just went through The Great Smoke in the San Francisco Bay area. I’ve never seen anything like it in 30+ fire seasons here. I know a lot of asthma sufferers were made worse and I’ve had congestion since about the second week, or mid November.

  • But isn’t infrared radiation always coming at because of the sun? And microwave radiation is like a step down from that right? I swear Karen’s have made 5G towers controversial and now YouTube recommends me this I hate humanity.

  • In the 70s I used to live in the city of El Paso. There was a lot of smog down by the University which is smack on the US/Mexican border. They use a lot of coal in Mexico. The to make it worse, ASARCO, American Smelting and Refining Company, had a big plant and it cranked out sulfur dioxide constantly, It used to sit over the U like in a bowl. I still remember what it tastes like. I had many respiratory problems during the 10 years I lived there. Thankfully got out of there. There were many attempts to shut ASARCO down thru the years and finally it happened, thought the smokestack still remains to this day.

  • Look into the smog of Los Angeles. It was one of the snobbiest cities in the world until the clean air act. There was even smog reported by the original discoverers of the area, due to fires lit by the native peoples to clear brush.

  • Unfortunately California seems to be going through similar problems, currently their air quality ranks among the worst in the world. Here’s hoping that their problems clear up as soon as possible. Being from Australia, large swathes of our country burn frequently. As an example of how often it happens, the second lowest fire danger rating, is ‘high’.

    (If you’re the one person who’s wondering what the others are: low/moderate, high, very high, severe, extreme, and catastrophic). When the scale goes all the way to the maximum, people take notice.

  • Well if you want to get into the twisted logic of the facts. God can just give Brandon a vision for winning lottery numbers. I mean that’s the least God can do. Brandon’s time is short everybody else ain’t worth shit to Brandon so who cares Brandon doesn’t need their charity. If they wanted to help or do business with Brandon they would of been done it by now.

  • I live in Lille, northern France and the polution thete is unbearable in summer.
    Two days are enough to get a thick coating of grey “dust” on windows, and this results in thick sludge when it rains…
    This being said, there is no visible effect of the pollution in the air, and you quickly get accustomed to the smell of car fumes…

  • Most of the time when i buy clothes they are not that expensive, but when a Pop Smoke x Dior collab is dropping im 10000% gonna buy something.. dont care how much it will cost

  • Everything in the universe is radioactive. Heat, light and temperature are all the same thing. They are radiation. You are exposed to more radiation standing next to your friend then using your phone. Both your friend and your cell phone emit thermal radiation, but your friend’s internal body temperature is hotter then the temperature of your phone. So there for, your friend is more radioactive.

  • I live on the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula and the Camp Fire wildfire has made it so smokey around here that I can barely see down the end of the block. My eyes look like I’m a total stoner and I have had a headache for the last 5 days. God only knows what kind of chemicals and heavy metals are in the air we are breathing…

  • Karen: advertise that the use of face mask cause Asphyxiation, and ordered by government to undermine normal people for the benefit of Bill Gates

    Comment Warrior A: “Kurz said do not belittle those people, because of nocebo effect”
    Another magnificent warrior called ME: “So why are they forcing us to do something in general if only a minority of people is prone to asphyxiation while using face mask? they are just stupid lazy egoistic narcissistic privileged people

  • In 1952 I was living in a small town, (Woking, Surrey). I was 17 and earned a few bob trotting in front of cars trying to find their way through the murk. I’d wait at one end of the town boundary and guide a car through to the other side, then I’d wait for someone coming the other way and guide them through. Sometimes I’d get as much as 5 Shillings, but it was usually about 2 bob or two and six per car. Enough for the pictures, or fish and chips. Sometimes I didn’t go home until 10.30 and had to go to work the next day, but I found it good fun.

  • Rubbish the “smog of london” was bad, but not as bad as your out of focus pictures to make it seem more dramatic. Only the average idiot would belive the half intelligent picturesque information you guys spew out of your channel

  • Salt Lake City, UT in the states regularly has what are called “inversions” during the winter. It’s the same thing, where warm air traps the cold polluted air near the ground. When you come into the Salt Lake valley from any of the side canyons up in the mountains, you see a wall of deep brown crap. It’s disgusting, though not as bad as what was described in the video.

  • I think some people confuse the benefits of having good clean air and exercise Vs sitting around and watching Netflix all day. I believe people who seriously believe this stuff are trying to find something to blame for other lifestyle issues.

  • My great grandfather had fought in war and had 5 bullet hole scars in his legs. He was not prone to exaggerating or telling fibs. He told me.whilst walking to work in a fog so thick you literally couldn’t hold your hand out at full arm extension and still see it. There was a man in front and he could here his footsteps. When suddenly the man let out a panicked shout and yelled, ” oh no please dont, put me down, put me down, please, please as he was somehow lifted into the air quickly. By the time my great grandfather had reached the spot where the man started to rise he cold see the disturbance in the fog and the swirls and hear the mans voice go up until it was directly above and then silent..something had taken this man.. there were apparently other cases but the authorities were ignoring and doing nothing. Something very sinister was going on. My grandfather was very careful who he told and till the day he died offered no explanation as too what was happening
    .I asked what he thought it was. He wouldn’t say what he thought. And told me I might develop ideas about it when i was older but at that time it wasnt good to talk about what he thought. A lot of the statistics of deaths involved missing bodies or people who had just vanished but this was kept out of the news.

  • We already have a Huge Study Going on right now on a Global scale
    3rd world countries call Cancer a “north america” or “Western thing”
    because they Almost never get cancer…
    Whether it is our chemical soup of Foods or Radiation…Developed countries are doing something wrong.

  • I used to live in California, the San Diego area. Vehicles had to pass smog checks regularly, when it would rain it would be acidic and I wasn’t allowed to play in it, and this is my personal theory but I think people are so oxygen deprived that they are actually mentally hindered.

  • Great video to add to a horrific time few know about; I liked the periodic table for sulfur, S, but shown as ‘Surfer’ instead of Sulfur.

  • The lack of surface wind was caused by a combination of the anticyclone and the lack of a low pressure system close enough to London to cause a pressure gradient. An anticyclone by itself doesn’t cause a lack of wind, it’s the difference in pressure between a high and low pressure system. As seen in the weather map, the broad high pressure ridge (as shown by the “H” symbols) stretched from the UK all the way to European Russia.

  • If i can’t be in the front NOBODY CAN BE IN THE FRONT. Shut YouTube down, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram. Everything.
    Wipe the database out like it never fuckin existed.

  • “could your phone hurt you”
    if you position it on the ground just right so that its standing upright then ram your head into the top

  • Y’all are a bunch of sheep. It’s your fault that the elites have gotten to where they are. Data is suppressed as 5g is being installed faster than any other infrastructure project on earth has before, in the name of making the elites richer and being able to track and sell data points on every aspect of your life.

  • Oh man, i just discovered this channel and I can tell I’m going to binge watching every video for the next couple of days. Such awesome content! Love this kind of stuff, can’t wait to see more:D

  • I’m currently watching The Crown. In episode 4 it starts in 1952 in The Meteorological Office and I immediately thought about the London Smog before the show revealed the calamity. I searched it on youtube and came across your channel. Glad I did, because you have great content. Subscribed!
