Two studies released today show that the increased risk of asthma in African-American children is linked to the inner-city environment and that air cleaners that remove tobacco smoke decrease the risk of asthma complications. Researchers at Rochester (N.Y.) General Hospital presented the studies at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies, held in New Orleans May 1-5.
