    Yes, or at least it seems that way.  Smog has been linked to asthma in children.  According to a USA Today article on the subject, children who are athletic and live in high smog areas are much more likely to develop asthma than non-active children.

    While smog does effect lung diseases such as asthma and emphysema, that’s not all it does. It also reduces your immune system’s ability to fight infections in you lungs. This is considered to be a short-term effect while the individual is in the smog, but repeated exposure is causing concern among doctors and researchers.
