Whenever I diagnose a person with asthma or allergies, I usually ask a few questions about his or her living environment. Is there shag carpeting in the bedroom? Is the air conditioning filter changed every month? Is there evidence of roaches and other vermin? I ask these questions because mold, dust mites, animal saliva and insect droppings can worsen the symptoms of asthma and other illnesses. But some of my patients tell me it’s impossible to do anything to reduce their exposure to such toxins. The reason? They live in rental housing.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Google Answers: Minority partner rights in a partnership
