Asthma Solution-Home Page: "Asthma is a disease that affects as many as 20 million people in the US, including 6 million children. Asthma in children has become the most common long-term childhood disease. In 2000, children with asthma accounted for nearly 2 million emergency room visits and nearly half a million hospitalizations.

African-Americans continue to have higher rates of asthma emergency room (ER) visits, hospitalizations, and deaths than do Caucasians. Their ER visits for asthma are more than double and their hospitalization rates are more than triple.

Reported cases of asthma have been increasing since 1980 and may be linked to pollutions, toxins or allergens. According to the American Lung Association, the number of people who have died from asthma since 1979 has almost doubled."
