We have gathered basic statistics to help enlighten and make all of us think just a little more about how we too can change our environment, improve our health, and our children's health.
* An estimated 20 million Americans suffer from asthma (1 in 15 Americans), and 50% of asthma cases are œallergic-asthma. The prevalence of asthma has been increasing since the early 1980s across all age, sex and racial groups.
* Asthma is the most common chronic condition among children.
* Asthma is more common among adult women than adult men.
* Asthma is more common among male children than female children.
* Asthma is more common among children (7 to 10%) than adults (3 to 5%).
* Nearly 5 million asthma sufferers are under age 18. It is the most common chronic childhood disease, affecting more than one child in 20.
* Asthma is slightly more prevalent among African Americans than Caucasians. 
* Ethnic differences in asthma prevalence, morbidity and mortality are highly correlated with poverty, urban air quality, indoor allergens, and lack of patient education and inadequate medical care.
Allergic triggers:- Mold- Animal dander- Pollen -Cockroach -Dust mites -
Non-allergic triggers -Certain drugs (ASA, beta blockers)
- Chemicals, fumes and odors
- Respiratory viral infections
- Weather (cold air, thunderstorms),
- Strenuous physical exercise can exacerbate asthma.
- Tobacco smoke
- Air pollution:
Smog Urbanization appears to be correlated with an increase in asthma. The nature of the risk is unclear because studies have not taken into account indoor allergens although these have been identified as significant risk factors. Experts are struggling to understand why prevalence rates world-wide are, on average, rising by 50% every decade. Diagnosis and Treatment Canadian experts in the area of asthma have developed evidence-based, clinical practice
Nearly 5 million children have asthma (6.9% of children under 18)
What Makes Asthma Worse?
Allergens, Warm-blooded pets (including dogs, cats, birds, and small rodents), House dust mites, Pollens from grass and trees, Molds (indoors and outdoors). Irritants, Cigarette smoke and wood smoke. Scented products such as hair spray, cosmetics, and cleaning products. Strong odors from fresh paint or cooking. Automobile fumes and air pollution. Chemicals such as pesticides and lawn treatments
Doctors and researchers agree that the single most important thing that parents can do to prevent their child from developing asthma in the first place is to eliminate or significantly reduce dust mite allergens or asthma triggers in the home.
Certain insecticides that are widely used in U.S. homes may be triggers for asthma. Studies indicate that exposure to organophosphate pesticides disrupts the part of the nervous system that regulates the motor functioning of the lungs. This has lead researchers to hypothesize that pesticides are among the preventable causes of asthma in children.

Home environment is a critical factor in managing your allergic asthma. If pet dander, smoke, mold or other triggers are all over your house, your asthma symptoms are likely to be much worse than if you eliminated these from your home environment.
"Clinical studies have revealed that avoidance of dust mite allergens in early childhood can prevent the onset of asthma..." Michael LeNoir Md
* Irritants in the air , including smoke from cigarettes, wood fires, or charcoal grills. Also, strong fumes or odors like household sprays, paint, gasoline, perfumes, and scented soaps. Although people are not actually allergic to these particles, they can aggravate inflamed, sensitive airways. Today most people are aware that smoking can lead to cancer and heart disease. What you may not be aware of, though, is that smoking is also a risk factor for asthma in children, and a common trigger of asthma symptoms for all ages. It may seem obvious that people with asthma should not smoke, but they should also avoid the smoke from others' cigarettes. This "secondhand" smoke, or "passive smoking," can trigger asthma symptoms in people with the disease. Studies have shown a clear link between secondhand smoke and asthma, especially in young people. Passive smoking worsens asthma in children and teens and may cause up to 26,000 new cases of asthma each year.
Efforts in Infancy May Prevent Childhood Asthma
FRIDAY, June 3 (HealthDay News) -- Timely asthma-prevention measures conducted when a child is still in infancy may help prevent asthma in later childhood, researchers report.
One such program greatly reduced asthma rates in high-risk children by the time they were 7 years old, according to a Canadian study published Friday in the online version of the Journal of Allergy & Clinical Immunology.
Researchers involved in the Canadian Childhood Asthma Prevention Study tracked the health outcomes of infants deemed to be at high risk for developing asthma due to an immediate family history of asthma and allergies.
Those in the study group took part in an asthma intervention program for the first year of their life that included avoidance of pets, secondhand smoke and dust mites, along with delaying the introduction of solid foods while encouraging breast-feeding. Another group of children did not receive these interventions.
As the children reached 7 years of age, the researchers collected data from 469 of the youngsters on respiratory symptoms and their frequency, plus the severity and use of medication for treatment of wheezing attacks within the previous year. A total of 380 children returned later for further assessment by a doctor, including breathing tests.
According to the researchers, the early intervention program reduced asthma frequency by 56 percent by age 7. Overall, the rate of asthma was significantly lower in the intervention group than in the control group (14.9 percent vs. 23 percent), the study found.
The researchers say they plan assess the children again as they reach 11 to 12 years of age, to determine whether the intervention program merely postponed the onset of asthma or whether it may be effective in decreasing lifelong risk for the disease.
