Seventy years ago, it was almost unknown for people to be admitted to hospital with asthma. Today, in Britain, it is the most common reason for hospital admission amongst children of primary school age and, after heart disease and strokes, the most common reason amongst the population as a whole. This video reveals for the first time, unpublished research that people living near major roads are significantly more likely to have asthma attacks. The solution may be an alternative approach to engine design, fuel consumption and ultimately a reappraisal of the role of the motor car in modern life.
