The worst cities for asthma

Filed under:

Many people in my life suffer from asthma, myself included. It doesn't help that we live in a city of over a million people, but when I see the pollution that engulfs cities like Los Angeles, I'm grateful for the chance to see blue sky and not just a smoggy haze when I look out my window.

Everyday Health has put together a list of the worst cities for Asthma Sufferers. At the top of the list? Atlanta. Other cities that made the cut include Philadelphia, Raleigh, Knoxville, Grand Rapids, Milwaukee, Little Rock and Harrisburg. Strangely enough, LA only ranked 12th on the list -- I would have thought it to be #1.
