11 Worst Cities for People with Asthma in America

Asthma is a chronic disease where the airways swell. This causes wheezing, coughing and other symptoms that make it hard to breathe. With the right diagnosis, treatment and care, people can manage their asthma. This can lead to less severe attacks, better lung function and better breathing, no matter where they live. One of the hidden costs of climate change is its health costs. As more pollutants are pumped into the air we breathe, the health impacts mount. They include asthma, which has been increasing steadily especially in poorer neighborhoods, and allergies. Now the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has released a report, Sneezing and Wheezing: How Climate Change Could Increase Ragweed Allergies, Air Pollution and Asthma, which identifies the most vulnerable regions and cities, which have the largest concentration of factors that can affect asthma. Here is the list by Insidermonkey experts about 11 worst cities for people with asthma in America.

Nationwide, nearly 25 million people have asthma. Every day, an average of nine people die from complications of the condition. Many people with self-reported moderate asthma might actually have a severe form of the disease, potentially causing them to miss important warnings and clues about their asthma, the AAFA said after a nationwide survey. Nearly half of those surveyed who did not initially report severe asthma, reported symptoms or measures that are indicators of possibly severe asthma, the organization said in a press release, indicating that more information on asthma triggers and symptoms is needed.
