Residential wood smoke is another major source of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. Just like cigarette smoke, there is no safe level of exposure; if you can smell it you are being exposed. For more information, go to Web Link

I suppose this is one reason that global warming is beneficial. I smell wood smoke in the air around my neighborhood on every single cold day, but not so much on warmer winter days.
I really feel sorry for the kids living near those oil refineries in the East Bay. They breath the pollution every day and have no way to escape it.

Think about all those people who bought property near major streets in Palo Alto, in order to find an affordable home and get their kids into good schools. There is a lot of pollution along Alma, Oregon Expwy, Middlefield, and El Camino, and for two blocks on either side of those streets. CalTrain smog probably doesn't help.
