In New York State (NYS), more than 1.1 million adults have asthma 1. Asthma occurs at any age but is more common in children than adults. Nationally, nearly one in 13 school-age children have asthma, and that rate is rising more rapidly in preschool-aged children and those living in urban inner cities than in any other group. Although there is no cure for asthma, asthma attacks can be prevented and controlled with proper care. New York is actively working with health care providers, community coalitions, schools, families and many others to fight asthma so people with asthma can live a full and active life.

actually the lungs of an asthmatic can be quite normal.  it is a chronic inflamation of the bronchial area leading to the lung which cause plumonary or breathing problems.  it is very serious and i hope the children of my home town, New York City are ok.  of course all the toxic pollution is very bad and is the underlining problem.  also city planners figured by putting in only male trees which have pollen there would be very little clean up involved.  the pollen would blow away.  however, this is abnormal in nature and female tree which have pods should also be planted.
