Anti-pollution indoor plants such as Aloe Vera helps.

 

Aloe (Aloe vera) This easy-to-grow, sun-loving succulent helps clear formaldehyde and benzene, which can be a byproduct of chemical-based cleaners, paints and more. Aloe is a smart choice for a sunny kitchen window. Beyond its air-clearing abilities, the gel inside an aloe plant can help heal cuts and burns. People have been using aloe vera for more than 6,000 years when it was known as "the plant of immortality" in early Egypt, according to the National Institutes of Health....

Yeah, here are a few:

 

- Getting a good indoor air filter

- Quit smoking (pollution is already bad enough)

- Get daily exercise to help strengthen your lungs & heart

- Take in more liquids, fruits and vegetables. I would say vitamin pills as well to give your immune system a little boost.

I saw title of the article yesterday, that Chinese developed some 'smog-destroying-tower'.

I'll c&p as soon as I find it.

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/smog-free-tower-in-beiji...

BEIJING: A Dutch artist opened what he calls the world's largest air purifier in Beijing on Thursday (Sep 30), beginning the first leg of a China tour to raise awareness of environmental problems.

The seven-metre-high Smog Free Tower, part of the Smog Free Project started by artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde, creates a "bubble of clean air enabling citizens to experience clean air for free," according to his website.

The tower captures and collects more than 75 percent of airborne smog particles that have diameters of 2.5 microns and 10 microns and releases clean air around the structure.
