I belive it was Arizona, but I have been told the air pollution is so bad there, that not even that area is a good choice for a asthmatic
Arizona was once the place to go, but now it is not. In fact, we're strongly considering moving out of state because my husband's asthma is getting worse every year. The pollution is terrible. Havasu is the one exception. It actually has the cleanest air in the entire nation.

I have found, though, that every person is different. I think the key is to find out what triggers her asthma, and avoid those climates. We're visiting several climates to find the one my husband does best in.

There are so many things that can trigger asthma attacks, chemicals, pollution, cigarette smoke. I have met people here in Oregon that moved here from Calif, and were so fed up with the smoke in the restaurants and the amount of people that smoke all over the place here, that they decided to move back to calif. These people had asthma and just really could not go out and enjoy themselves without fear of a attack.

Both myself AND my son have allergies and asthma. We been moving alllllll over coast to coast. So far we've done 10x better out west away from greenery, molds & high pollens. Off our inhalers there & it wasn't triggered very often. We were in Phoenix but not directly downtown & we did great. Phoenix is just one city in Arizona & there are some great places to live all over the state with low pollution. We're stuck in the Ohio Valley right now & sick as dogs 365 days a year! UGH! Can't wait to leave!
