The skyline is obscured by smoke and haze from wildfires as a tour boat makes its way along the waterfront Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, in San Francisco. Recurring wildfires are sparking concern among medical experts about potentially major health consequences. Worsening asthma, lung disease and even heart attacks in heart disease patients have all been linked with previous fires.

That's exposing many more people to choking smoke that contains many of the same toxic ingredients as urban air pollution. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)
