 Asthma Cases Surge in Imperial County

Imperial County seems to be really bad for children with asthma.

Doctors and public health officials guess that it could be a combination of whipping winds, pesticide-tinged farmland dust and large numbers of low-income families not having health insurance which is causing high rates of asthma hospitalizations and ER visits.

Imperial County cannot boast of good quality of air due to industrial pollution from mexico, unpaved roads,   and agricultural tilling.
