Comments on: Bringing National Attention to the Need for Comprehensive Asthma Care http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/02/bringing-national-attention-to-the-need-for-comprehensive-asthma-care/ The EPA Blog Tue, 04 Aug 2015 11:45:05 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Anne Chastain http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/02/bringing-national-attention-to-the-need-for-comprehensive-asthma-care/#comment-17535 Sat, 06 Mar 2010 00:58:00 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=1337#comment-17535 Both my home and the Title I (80% socioeconomically disadvantaged) Elementary School where I teach are on the same road. We are located in an industrial area in close proximity to Tampa Int’l. Airport. Jets fly over our house and school shortly after take-off and prior to landing 24/7. Jet fuel is one of the worse pollutants. Both my young children have asthma, and far too many of my students who live in the area also have asthma. In the morning the ozone hangs low in the moist air for hours. I worry about the students breathing the air during recess and P.E. I worry about the coaches breathing the pollution all day. I worry about my toddler & 8 yr old having been exposed to polllution from pregnancy to present.

Environmental factors have a major impact in causing and/or making worse serious health problems. One major factor seems to be diesel particulate exhaust in the air over freeways and major roads that has been shown to increase the chances of heart problems for persons on the freeways 2 or 3 hours a day and to increase the risk of misscarraige in pregnant woman who live near them. The number of cases of disability is on the increase and environmental factors probably are playing a role with this trend too. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Best preventions would come in permanent children health development observatory at early age.
Also, I am more and more focusing in immune system comprehensive; how make it stronger.
My observation brings me to understand, how people with Asthma are uncomfortable to the variable weather, those categories would feel better in cleaner environment.
That is something that my understanding keeping tracks.

Want to stop it? Peacefully reduce the human population and recycle 100% of all waste and garbage. If not, breathe deep.
