Newsweek: The Scary Spread of Asthma

« back

Asthma runs in my family, and when my daughter was young we had to regularly place a mask over her face to help her inhale vaporized medicine.  I jumped on the chance to learn more about the current research into this growing problem, and attended a special school for acute asthmatics in Denver, CO.  There is so much we don’t know about this worldwide asthma epidemic, but it’s not hard to imagine it has something to do with the chemicals we have spread throughout our environment, from our air to our carpets.
