“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.” — Professor Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Discourse in the Age of Show Business

The 2 main toxins in air-pollution are the same as the 2 main toxins in smoking.In other words, even if you are trying to be healthy by not eating cooked foods, you are still getting some of them if you live in most areas of the world. Fortunately, Vienna is a cleaner city than most.

This sort of thing may not mean much but it has been predicted that (fresh, clean) water will become a scarce resaource for most Earthlings in the next few decades. Drought combined with  pisspoor water-management by humans will ensure scarcity thereof. Fortunately, Austria has no worries re water for a lot longer than most other countries.
