[Science Espresso #4] Can smog make people sick?

We breathe to live, but we get sick with the air we breathe. Guard levels for fine powders are regularly exceeded in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. Respiratory problems, which experts believe area partly related to the air quality, have also increased. Does living in the city and near to motorways make us sick?      
The event is proposed in collaboration with Associazione Svizzera infermieri – Sezione Ticino.
