Close up of cancerous lung

What I think about air pollution is black thick fog and that is so toxic that on fatal breath that it my kill you. One time in my house I was cooking chicken and I accidentally burned it; the chicken was very black and there was a thick fog in the kitchen and I passed out after that.

I'm not really sure what happened but the is how I think of air pollution. I believe that it is caused by cars and every thing that has do with smoke. That is also why I don't approve of cigarettes because all they do is pollute the earth and hurt your longs.

Barry's Response - The most well-known danger here is lung cancer. Here, unwanted cells grows in the lung that can spread to other tissues. Watch out for short breath, coughing up blood and unexplained loss of weight.

Smokers lose at least 10 years from their lives on average. Wikipedia lists smoking as causing (or possibly causing) these ailments:
  • lung cancer,
  • kidney cancer,
  • cancer of the larynx / head / neck,
  • breast cancer,
  • bladder cancer,
  • cancer of the esophagus,
  • cancer of the pancreas
  • stomach cancer
  • myeloid leukaemia
  • squamous cell sinonasal cancer
  • liver cancer
  • colorectal cancer
  • as well as cancers of the 1) gallbladder
  • 2) adrenal gland
  • 3) small intestine
