Hey all. Just wanted to share some disturbing information that I learned on asthma while reading Jonathan Kovols book Amazing Grace. The book is about the psychology behind the Bronx and the ghettos. The death rates from asthma there are skyrocketing. People cannot afford the medicine and the proper equipment needed to maintain their asthma. Inhalers are in such high demand that they are being scalped on the streets, and according to the author are more valuable than heroin. Eight out of ten patients who go into the doctors complain of asthma. Many times the patients are treated in hospitals where they are afraid to even go to the bathrooms because of the filth. This completely shocked and appalled me. I know that if the roles were reversed and I was the one in this situation, I would probably not be here today. After reading this book (which I recommend we all read) I really want to do something to help these asthma patients. The author gives his contact information in the book, and if everyone is willing, I thought that I might invite him to post here more of his findings and ways that we could help out. Please let me know.
