Air Pollution and Asthma

Let's face it, our health is largely dependent on our environment.  In many cases, we don't even think about it, but a good example is how air pollution is known to increase the risk of developing asthma.  According to a study, it just doesn't end at developing the condition, it also makes controlling it more difficult.  In the study, researchers surveyed 481 people about their asthma symptoms and compared that data to information about local levels of ozone, nitrous oxide, and particulate matter.  They found that poor air quality really made a difference.
