How Your Health is Being Affected

The Australian National University population and climate health expert Liz Hanna said everybody should be wary of the smoke’s irritating effects.

“Never underestimate how these things can sneak up on you and how damaging they can be, even if you think you’re fit and well,” Hanna said.

“Smoke can amplify pre-existing conditions but also trigger responses in people that don’t know that they’re subclinical. “They can have quite a dramatic response and this could be their first time.

Inhaled heat can also burn people’s throat and lungs, Hanna said.

"Breathing it in is like developing a pack a day (cigarettes) habit."
