This picture taken on January 2, 2013 shows smog over suburbs north west of Thessaloniki. 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)
