Why does Asthma UK study pollution and asthma?

At the Asthma UK centre one of our major challenges really is understanding first of all, does pollution in cities lead to the development of asthma? We have evidence to say that it may do in children who are exposed to various different types of pollution on a regular basis. We really need to know if that’s true or not. We also need to understand if by changing the types of pollution, for example if we eliminate diesel from our cities, whether that means a lot less people have asthma attacks.
