    Because pollutants floating around in the air can irritate asthma, clean air is a factor to consider when thinking about where to live as an asthma sufferer. According to CNNMoney, Richmond, VA, Lake Havasu City, AZ, and Novato, CA are the top 3 cities with the best air quality (in the U.S.). The website is attached as a citation so that you can see a more substantial list.

      Edit: Apparently Richmond isn’t such a good idea. While it may have clean air, the city has many allergens floating around. The other two cities, however, are in arider climates; therefore, they are better for people who suffer from asthma.
