This news is based on the following article: Cook Q, Argenio K, Lovinsky-Desir S. The impact of environmental injustice and social determinants of
health on the role of air pollution in asthma and allergic disease in the United States. Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology 2021; 148 : 1089-
1101.e5. Doi : 10.1016/j.jaci.2021.09.018.


Exposure to air pollution is associated with diverse disturbances, such as asthma and allergies. In the USA, the effects of this pollution are not distributed uniformly. Authors of this article show that social and environmental factors cause communities of color and poor people to have a higher accrued risk of morbidity from asthma and allergies.
