    Yes, ozone or O3 (the molecule formula) poses health risks to humans if inhaled. Breathing ozone can result in chest pains, coughing, throat irritation, and congestion. It can worsen previous symptoms such as asthma and bronchitis.

    Low level ozone is what makes up a large portion of ‘smog’ that we see in large industrial centres around the world.  It results from the reaction of sunlight and air containing hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides.  Hydrocarbons are released into the air through processing and usage of crude oil and its various products.  Nitrogen oxides are produced during fuel combustion.  Ozone, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides all have negative health effects on the human respiratory system.
