Date: April 19, 2003
Author: Richard Pérez-Peña
QUOTE: Researchers say the figures, from an effort based at Harlem Hospital Center to test every child in a 24-block area, could indicate that the incidence of asthma is even higher in poor, urban areas than was previously believed.

ABSTRACT: A study found that 25% of children in central Harlem have asthma, more than in any other American neighborhood. Researchers say that a number of external factors may contribute to the high asthma rate, including poverty. --- Sara Holliday
