In brief: Lung pollution

Avoid inhaling toxic air. Live where you can get good clean air. Do not smoke and live with second hand cigarette smoke.
If you have allergies or asthma, treat these conditions appropriately. Avoid working where you will inhale fumes. If you use chemicals at home for projects or hobbies, make sure you have plenty of ventilation.

In brief: Avoid pollution

Minimize one's exposure to the pollution, either by staying away from the pollution, or else wearing a mask or respirator if one has to be exposed to the pollution due to a job.
