Air pollution in cities of Greece has surged in recent days because of people choosing wood over more expensive fuels to heat their homes in the grips of a continuing economic crisis.The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (KEELPNO) on Wednesday added its voice to those warning of the health risks of the increased use of fireplaces and wood-burning stoves by Greeks anxious to cut down on their heating bills, warning that burning wood in the home released 30 times more air pollution than using a well-maintained heating oil or gas-burning boiler.AFP PHOTO /Sakis Mitrolidis (Photo credit should read SAKIS MITROLIDIS/AFP/Getty Images)
