Hi all. Where is the best state and area of those states which have the least asthma inducing conditions??????????? Not Phoenix or Tucson areas in Az as the pollution makes it very uncomfortable. Thanks for your advice!

I don't have asthma but I've been told somewhere dry and pollution free would be best.
That to me would be a smaller city. I don't think areas with snow would be a problem but I'm no expert.
Once you get into most of the big cities or near them you start getting pollution.
I don't like the idea of living somewhere with a lot of pollution either.
Perhaps a high desert location would work for you. Try a visit to New Mexico or Colorado.

I am an asthma sufferer and do to military have been moved all over the U.S. In California I didn't even know I had asthma, (I knew I had allergies and my family doctor always told my mom not to move East because I was highly allergic to certain plants, trees). Well, In NC I was fine, Fort Lee, VA is when I realized I had allergy induced asthma - one attack after another. Then Fort Drum NY free and clear for 4 years, back to California for a year free and clear, up to WA free and clear, over to Fort Eustis, VA mild allergy symptoms however my son was diagnosed with asthma there and had problems, Now to Fort Campbell, KY worse I have ever been!!! It's really bad for me here. I guess there is no perfect place for all asthma sufferers each patient is different. You might have a trigger of dust when I have a trigger of pollen. What seems to be one thing that I've noticed asthma patients agree on is usually by the water works well, Florida coast, Ca/ WA coast. Good Luck.

I worked in asthma/allergy for years as a nurse. You reminded me of a talk at a national meeting I once attended, where the speaker said, look in the phone book ever bigger town and city has an allergy/asthma doctor, so you kinda trade one problem for another(there is no perfect place). That said, I think drier climates do better and climates with winter usually do better at decreasing allergens such as dust mites. If your asthma doesn't have an allergic component, it probably doesn't matter too much

Drier is not always better. We moved out to west Texas 8 years ago and my wife's allergies are worse than ever. The combination of drier,(drying out the mucus membrains) and the winds with all the dust and crap in the air has made it bad for her. The next stop we are planning is someplace where the wind comes off the ocean. (Clean air)

This is an old thread, but still applies, I guess.

There is no one best place for no asthma. It's wherever is best for the individal with asthma. A lot depends on what triggers the asthma, and what accompanying allergies and sensitivities exist.
