New Asthma Cases Fell When LA's Smog Declined : Shots - Health News

Garcia and her colleagues reconstructed air-quality trends in these regions. "Some communities declined a little bit," she says. "Some communities declined a lot. Some communities didn't decline at all."

Garcia wondered whether new cases of asthma would be lower in communities where the air improved the most. The answer was yes, especially for nitrogen dioxide, which is an indicator of tailpipe emissions, and fine particles, which are a major type of pollution from diesel engines.

Overall, the USC scientists report that these pollutants declined about 20 percent over the 20-year period.

"This corresponded with about a 20 percent decline in the rate of new asthma cases in children," Garcia says. "It's fairly substantial."

There were other positive trends in these communities as well. The study found that pregnant women sharply reduced their smoking over this time period, and children were exposed to far less secondhand tobacco smoke.

Garcia says her results show improvements above and beyond what those changes might have delivered as well. The study can't prove cause and effect, but the findings provide strong circumstantial evidence that reducing air pollution reduces illness.

Sweet, what is your assignment? Course assignments often ask you to make a persuasive case in writing. You are asked to convince your reader of your point of view. This form of persuasion, often called academic argument, follows a predictable pattern


You must think that you are writing a topic that readers know nothing about it. So start with defining what is Asthma, the types of Asthma, the causes and factors that triggering asthma. Then list and comment of the corrective measures including therapies,
