 Major Cause of Asthma  Attacks  in Kids Continues to be Exposure  to Smokers

Exposure to smokers is still a major cause of asthma attacks in children in the United States, a new survey has found.

During Aug. and Sept. 2010, the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital poll asked 1,621 parents across the United States, whose children have asthma about factors that cause asthma attacks, and if their children spend time with tobacco smokers.

Among parents whose children have asthma, 73 percent state that tobacco smoke causes asthma attacks in their children.

And nearly half of parents say their asthmatic child spends time with people who smoke.

Mostly the smoker is the asthmatic child's parent and less often it is another adult, sibling, or the asthmatic child's friend.
