Worst City In Country For People With Asthma



The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America researched using twelve factors one hundred of the USA’s largest cities. St. Louis, Mo. is at that at the top of the list for 2009 for being the worst city for people that have asthma to live. They have been moving up the chart for a couple of years and now they are number one. The amount of people that have died from asthma, pollen, and no non-smoking in public places contributed to their placing. Asthma attacks are responsible for almost two million emergency room visits and half a million hospital admissions per year.
