Why America’s Not Breathing Easy (Infographic)

Highlights from a Cleveland Clinic-Parade survey

When it comes to keeping our lungs healthy, America has a knowledge gap. That’s what a nationwide survey by Cleveland Clinic and Parade magazine reveals. We know lung cancer is deadly but don’t know the best way to spot it early. We don’t realize that asthma is life-threatening, too, or which allergy most often triggers it. And we care about air pollution, but don’t do enough to clear the air in our homes.
