Removing indoor mould helps symptoms of asthma
Mould and symptoms of asthma
A Cardiff University study has found that removing indoor mould improves the symptoms of people with asthma.
Asthma UK figures show the prevalence of asthma in Wales is among the highest in the world, with 260,000 people receiving treatment for their asthma and with the rate of hospital admissions for adults 12 per cent more than anywhere else in the UK.
Researchers in the School of Medicine asked patients with asthma living in two areas of South Wales if they noticed mould growing inside their houses which was then confirmed by a trained observer.
