no.. is it hazardous or any potential sickness? If smokers can get lung cancer, are we vulnerable to lung cancer?

Haze is caused by the amount of particulates in the air. Most illnesses caused by haze is treatable unless one already has some chronic illness.

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/haze/faq.htm

Tobacco smoke contains more than 70 different cancer-causing substances. When you inhale tobacco smoke, these chemicals enter your lungs and spread around the rest of your body. Smoking is a leading cause of cancer and death from cancer. It causes cancers of the lung, esophagus, larynx, mouth, throat, kidney, bladder, pancreas, stomach, and cervix, as well as acute myeloid leukemia

Scientists have shown that these chemicals can damage DNA and change important genes. This causes cancer by making your cells grow and multiply out of control.

So haze and tobacco smoke are totally different.

yes. most likely you are allergic to the particles in the haze. most will get watery, red eyes or runny nose/blocked nose, itchy/sore throat and cough/phelgm.
