Urban air pollution

The potential for serious consequences of exposure to high levels of ambient air pollution was made clear in the mid-20th century, when cities in Europe and the United States experienced episodes of air pollution, such as the infamous London Fog of 1952 and Donora Smog of 1948, that resulted in large numbers of excess deaths and hospital admissions. Subsequent clean air legislation and other regulatory actions led to the reduction of ambient air pollution in many regions of the world, and particularly in the wealthy developed countries of North America and Europe.
