How does air pollution affect children differently than it does adults?

    First of all, children take in more air in comparison to their body weight, than adults; their lungs are not fully devellopped yet; and they spend more time outside than adults, so they are much more vulnerable to air pollution than adults.

    In general, children are more susceptible to pollution than adults. Not only are they exposed more, as soph1989 pointed out, but they also have less resources for recovering in their bodies (hence why illnesses hit children harder than adults).
