JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Jackson is one of the deadliest cities in the U.S. for people with asthma. In 2016 Mississippi saw the most deaths from asthma per capita and Jackson outranks many other Southern cities on the “2019 Allergy and Asthma Capitals” list. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, which published the “Asthma Capitals” report, says most asthma deaths can be prevented with medication and allergies and asthma often occur in tandem. Pollen, dust, mold and pet dander, can trigger asthma and parents who don’t have the condition themselves may not realize how household conditions affect their child’s ability to breathe.[sc name=”twitterfollow”]
