Bronchitis is an issue in which the passage to the lungs becomes inflamed and tight, allowing less air than usual to pass through. This breathing issue isn't fun for anyone, though there are treatments. Still, it can be especially difficult for young sufferers.
A recent international study seems to show that the excessive presence of nitrogen oxides in the air due to air pollution has made young children more susceptible to bronchitis. Lower respiratory problems have been held accountable for nearly 20 percent of the deaths in those less than 5 years old.
This study goes on to show that the current accepted level of nitrogen oxide that's considered safe may not be so for those with developing respiratory systems. The nine-year study showed that the level of pollution may end up increasing young children's chance and frequency of developing acute bronchitis.
