smog sickness.

Be on alert for carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when poisonous gases are inhaled and are picked up quickly by the red blood cells at a higher rate than oxygen, blocking oxygen from getting into the body. The result can damage body tissues and cause death. Symptoms include: headache, dizziness, confusion, flu-like effects, chest pain, nausea and loss of consciousness. Because the gas is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, it can be difficult to detect.
