Unfortunately, some dust particles are so nice that they can still penetrate through our filters and thus end up in our air pipe branches, lungs and bloodstream. They can cause a lot of damage to both short and long-term. The collective name for those particles is logically 'fine dust'. Unfortunately, the sky in our country is not poor.

But by smoking you lose no less than ten years, because you get even more toxic substances right in your respiratory tract.

If you get a warning there, you may not perform a serious effort between 12 pm and 8 pm. Keep it on it. It will be a lot more pleasant to walk in the morning or in the evening when the temperatures are somewhat fresher. In winter it is then worn out on foggy days. Fog often creates when the windless is. Harmful particles from traffic, industry and heaters cannot be blown away.
