Recent studies have suggested that indoor exposures -- to dust mites, cockroaches, mold, pet dander, tobacco smoke, and other biological and chemical pollutants -- may influence the disease course of asthma. To ensure an appropriate response, public health and education officials have south a science-based assessment of asthma and its relationship to indoor air exposures.
Clearing the Air meets this need. This book examines how indoor pollutants contribute to asthma -- its causation, prevalence, triggering, and severity. The committee discusses asthma among the general population and in sensitive subpopulations including children, low-income individuals, and urban residents. Based on the most current findings, the book also evaluates the scientific basis for mitigating the effects of indoor air pollutants implicated in asthma. The committee identifies priorities for public health policy, public education outreach, preventive intervention, and further research.
