Horsepoop! Coal does NOT "cause" asthma. We really don't know the cause. It appears in high IQ kids in greater numbers, and in the poor population. Does intelligence cause it? Does welfare and food stamps cause it?

Asthma attacks can be "triggered" by pollutants, or fresh paint, or new carpets, or spring flowers. But they don't "cause" the asthma itself.

Another interesting thing is that asthma diagnoses have gone up in recent decades as smoking rates have decreased. You'd think the opposite would be true.
