Indoor Air Cleaners Ease Asthma Symptoms in Children Living With Smokers - 08/02/2011

Indoor Air Cleaners Ease Asthma Symptoms in Children Living With Smokers

Smoke-free homes still the best choice
Release Date: August 2, 2011

A Johns Hopkins Children’s Center study of Baltimore City children who have asthma and live with smokers shows that indoor air cleaners can greatly reduce household air pollution and lower the rates of daytime asthma symptoms to those achieved with certain anti-inflammatory asthma drugs. Although the air cleaners improved the overall air quality in homes, they did not reduce air nicotine levels and did not counter all ill effects of second-hand smoke, the researchers warn.
