There is a triple threat to human health and well-being in the Asian air. First, we are going to see an increase in tobacco-attributable deaths as more and more people smoke. Much of this mortality, as well as crippling chronic lung disease, can be prevented if smokers stop smoking. Secondly, additional suffering, disability, and premature death from lung disease can be prevented if pollution—Asian pollution being the worst in the world—can be reduced. And last, the coughing, wheezing, and attacks of bronchitis caused by the uniquely Asian problem of the haze would be eliminated if the illegal practice of slash and burn is prohibited.
