Resumo: The exposure to urban air pollutants continues to be a public health issue causing illness and death. Breathing small amounts of pollutants over many years is considered hazardous as well as breathing high concentrations of air pollutants. Traditionally measured pollutants are the fine particulates matter and tropospheric ozone. For these reasons, whenever the value of 180 μg/m3 is exceeded, it is required to alert the population. There is currently no study made to assess the relationship between those pollutants and the frequency of respiratory diseases in the so called big Lisbon area of Amadora and Sintra which is the second highest density populated region in Portugal. The elder are the most susceptible to air pollution exposure and those with inflammatory disorders of the respiratory airways, such as asthma or severe bronchitis. Children are known as at greater risk because their lungs are still developing.
