How close to a highway do you live? Does your child/children suffer from asthma?

I read that close (< 1 mile) proximity to a highway may effect your child's lung development. I was wondering if anyone lives close to highway, just how close, and if there child has asthma?

  • We now live close to the highway and my child doesn't suffer from any breathing problems. When i was born I lived like 5 to 7 miles away from an interstate but I have adolescent asthma.
