Housecall for Health: Asthma Rates Increasing

Millions of Americans suffer from a common respiratory disease that doesn’t have a cure…and the number of those inflicted continues to rise.

FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:

Audio clip:

U.S. asthma rates are higher than ever.  New findings from the CDC show that nearly 30 million people suffer from asthma, including 7 million who are under 18.  The government survey finds that even though the rate has increased since 2001, the number of people who die from the condition dropped by 33%.

It’s still not clear how to prevent asthma from developing, and experts say a cure isn’t in sight.
