The principle being this danger is expressed by Dr. Joseph T. Cooke, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine and Patient Safety Officer at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, he says the main culprits are ozone, fine particulate matter, and carbon monoxide, lungs and respiratory system are irritated by these pollutants and can increase the problems of asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, or cardiopulmonary maladies.
