One in Six US High School Students Has Asthma

Terms: Uncategorized

In a national survey of high-school students, approximately one
in six reported that they currently have asthma, and of these,
more than one in three had an attack during the preceding year,
according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The incidence of asthma has increased greatly in recent decades.
We think that much of it may be related to food or environmental
allergies, and a poor quality diet.

options for asthma, please visit our Asthma page.
