California wildfires will be lofted into the air and carried 3,000 miles to the East Coast where it may subtly affect health

California is ablaze with 12 wildfires that have burned 10,000 acres
Smoke from the massive blazes will travel 3,000 miles to the East Coast 
Even from that distance, the smoke will affect air quality and dot our lungs with harmful fine particles 
Smoke inhalation causes minor immediate effects but the fine particles raise heart and lung risks over the course of a life 

Massive plumes of smoke from the California wildfires have traveled across the country, and may be exposing millions of Americans to fine particles that can damage their lungs. 

There are 12 fires raging in California, decimating more than 10,000 acres and forcing more than 20,000 people to flee for their lives.

But even out of the blaze's reach, people in California and far beyond may be in danger of inhaling toxic matter from the fire. 

The National Weather Service's new map shows that the West Coast is enveloped in dangerously thick smoke which is set to cross  the country, even reaching the Easwt Coast. 

At lower concentrations, smoke still can cause eye and lung irritation, especially for older people, children and those who already suffer from cardiovascular and respiratory problems.
