The increase in asthma in kids (and adults) really irks me. I have theories. Un PC ones. I knew 1 (one) kid in my entire school (and I knew everyone in my school) who had asthma attacks after running and that was it.

Singular combined with Zyrtec put my daughter into upper respiratory distress many times last year. She had pneumonia & broncititis over & over. Her moron dr was in denial & thought I was a crazy mother. Thanks to TigersEye figuring out that she was allergic to these meds she is doing fine. I got a dr who believed me when I said the meds were making her worse. Her new dr changed the meds and inhaler. She has hardly used the inhaler all summer. I am wondering if her school which is old could be part of her problem. I guess I will find out soon enough when school starts. In my neighborhood so many of her little friends have asthma that I think its strange. None of my older adult children or their friends had it. Its strange how so many children now have it.

When I grew up, I knew one kid with a history of asthma. His ancestry was Italian. My theory is that white devils from the northern parts of Europe self selected themselves to tolerate air pollution from a smoky hearth in their shelters which kept them warm at home.
