It’s asthma time for children

It’s peak time for asthma among young people, new provincial health data show. In a news release by the Ontario Lung Association, Dr. Teresa To, Senior Scientist, Child Health Evaluative Sciences, comments on the “September Spike” during the 38th week of the year (the week of Sept. 14).

“We’ve noticed that the spike isn’t localized to any particular region, as rates throughout Ontario are higher than average during this time period,” said Dr. To. “The good news, however, is that all signs point to the 2014 September Spike being less severe than previous years.”
