PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS ON MAN AND DOMESTIC ANIMALS Donora, Poza Rica, London, and the Meuse Valley of Belgium have given dramatic proof that air pollution can kill; and, together with other evidence, they have implied less shocking but more extensive effects of air pollutants on the health of affected populations.
