Philadelphia physician treats a lot of children with asthma in her medical offices in 5801 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia. She bought the building, opened her medical offices, and a few months later learned that the top floor, which was walled off and inaccessible, had been a ballroom for the USO for black military. She learned this from the passenger next to her on a airplane from California.

So she opened a black veterans museum on the top floors and additionally trained as a science teacher so she could bring kids in and teach them.

Asthma disproportionately affects children of African ancestry. Is it a poverty issue, a genetic issue, both? Articles have been produced claiming both. The fact is, if your child can't breathe in the middle of the night, you really don't care.

What can you do to lessen the frequency of asthma attacks? Keep your house obsessively clean. no dust, no curtains, no carpets, books behind glass, get rid of anything that will attract cockroaches.

Asthma. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2013 v6n1 p0517

Asthma is a horrible disease, because it kills children and young people. During my 6 years at Sydney Girls High School, one girl who was a current student died: she was 15, her name was Janet Brown, and she died as a result of asthma: her heart stopped when she was sleeping. Her heart had more burden on it than it could bear, that is what happens when a young frail body tries so hard to bring in air. 

Janet died in 1966. When the world was on fire in Vietnam, in the United States because of civil rights protests, in London because of fashion (fashion?). In Australia we did not notice that the new country of Nigeria was chewing out its own heart.

Thirty four years later, in January 2000, at the start of the millennium that was supposed to be clean, new and nonviolent, a baby was born to a young woman still in high school, Colleen Finlay. Six months later Colleen was dead from a massive asthma attack in her parents' house that was so sudden and so violent that Colleen could not be saved. The father of her baby had died before the birth, I was not told how.

I would say the saddest event I have been to with any of my 4 children was going with Miles, who was 17, to the viewing, and the next day, to Colleen's funeral. She was his classmate, his friend and the young mother of a baby who was left with no biological parents.

Asthma kills. That is why it must be taken seriously. From the CDC and the National library of Medicine: "Asthma continues to take its toll on Americans, with almost 19 million adults (8.2%) suffering from the disorder in 2010, according to a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC analysis also found that more than 29 million (almost 13 %) of adults have been diagnosed with the illness at some point in their lifetime.


Children are also being hit hard by the wheezing and discomfort of asthma. According to the report, in 2010 about 10 million children had been diagnosed with asthma in their lifetime and 7 million (9.4%) still had asthma.


Rates of asthma are rising, not falling, the experts noted. From 2001 to 2010, the proportion of people with asthma increased by almost 15%. And by 2009, asthma accounted for nearly 3,400 deaths, nearly 480,000 hospitalizations, 1.9 million emergency department visits, and 8.9 million physician office visits."


What really sucks is that children of African ancestry are more likely to have asthma. To access MJoTA asthma news about treatment and prevention, click here.
