WHO cleared that if the air quality will not be controlled the range of death will be out of control in upcoming recent years. In this direction, we conducted a review study to evaluate the respiratory diseases and their pathogenesis which are induced due to ambient particulate matter (PM). Another aim of the present study is to examine the traditional herbal medicinal method to cure lung tissue damage due to respiratory diseases induced by PM.The investigation has been through PRISMA method for systematic review study. Total 967 papers have been reviewed from Scopus search, PubMed, Google Scholar, Taylor & Francis, WHO online platform and many classical text for traditional medicines like Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, Bhavprakashetc. Eventually 68 articles have been included and others have been excluded according to the need of the study. The number of searched articles have been showed through PRISMA flow chart step by step.After this deep review investigation, we concluded that although there are many health issues induced from particulate matter but the major pathogenesis harm is on lung tissue where the ultra-fine PM can deposit through inhalation even with the short-term exposure. After review of different level of lung tissue degeneration some very efficient herbal or plant constituents have been found out to cure the lung tissue damage or respiratory issues.Particulate matter pollutant has the potent property of being oxidative and leave a toxic effect on lungs and respiratory system in human body.
