Breakfasters: Understanding the Risks of Smoke Inhalation from the NSW Bushfires

The ongoing bushfires in NSW continue to rip through the country with devastating effects on the land as well as air quality in surrounding areas. In fact, Canberra’s air quality has recently been graded as worse than China’s as a result of the fires. Professor Bruce Thompson is the Dean of Health Science at Swinburne and joins the Breakfasters team to discuss the symptoms and risks of smoke inhalation, as well as what those in affected areas can do to minimise their contact with harmful omissions.
