air poison: Probably with ordinary air pollution one can find high amounts of pollutants and dust that can act as irritants and less commonly allergans but usually not poisons. Trace amount of mercury, lead, and various chemicals can be seen with higher amounts coming from industrial emissions or hazardous waste sites. The symptoms are fatigue, headache and respiratory and eye irritation.
