Abstract: Respiratory morbidity had the strongest evidence of an association with wildfire smoke. In short time proven significant association between exposure to wildfire smoke and hospital or emergency room admissions for respiratory diseases, respiratory symptoms or dispensation/use of medication and lung complain. For long time the inhalation of air pollution containing particulate matter may cause lung cancer. Inhalation of particulate matter contaminated with dioxins may have carcinogenic effects. For example, the dioxin TCDD-a component of an herbicide used in forestry management -sometimes occurs in biomass smoke. Sarcoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and liver cancer are associated with some of the trace gases that are present in biomass smoke including dioxins and methyl bromide. Ozone produced from the hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides emitted by forest fires-is carcinogenic. Free radicals in forest fire smoke react with tissues indicating that they are carcinogenic and mutagenic.
