Is it true that one quarter of inner-city children in the United States has asthma due to air pollution?

    The rates of asthma in inner city children is approximately 15%. It is believed that pollution is one of the causes of this high number, although scientists believe that other allergens such as cockroaches and mice probably also play a part.

    20% of Puerto Rican children, and 13% of African American children are found to suffer from childhood asthma, compared to the national childhood asthma average, which is 8%. The most likely reason for the disparity in numbers is the environments that children from minority groups live in inner city areas that have higher levels of air pollution and some of the other allergens mentioned above.
