    thanks Romania has alot of Diesel trucks and cars and I accidently stood in the exhaust of a car and I became very sick untill I returned to the US and consultated my doctor that told me they have very bad air quality which makes sense because I got allot better when I entered an oxygen fille airplane for the long trip home.

    U should develop resistance to them. Because in India, these things r common. Being an asthma patient, I have developed resistance to those noxious fumes.
