Asthma is triggered by cold weather.

Here is another of Craig Idso’s articles.

It confirms what I have known since I was a young physician. I did my internship at Harlem Hospital and asthma is a big problem in the urban black community. The onset of cold weather caused a dramatic increase in asthma cases. Some of that may be due to closed up environments with increased indoor air allergen loads, some of it may be the tendency of cold weather to aggravate reactive airways.

For example exposure to cold and exercise cause asthma attacks in some, but remember that asthma is mostly an allergic disease, and the triggers are allergens, not ozone or temp. Cold and exercise may aggravate the reactive airway disease but is not the cause of asthma. That’s why Milloy’s research showed no correlation between asthma attacks and ozone levels in a long-term CA study.
