Toxicological effects - coal smoke, ash and dust

Is anyone able to supply me information relating to the effects of
prolonged exposure to coal smoke, dust and ash (both the latter in very
fine particle form).  

After a period of four years inhaling and generally being exposed to
fumes etc. from a faulty fireplace and flue in a living room I would
dearly like to know the poisons to which I have been subjected.

I understand that coal fires can be every bit as lethal as a gas fire if
flues etc. are faulty.

Any help would be much appreciated,
