Roaches and Asthma


Recommended Posts

Just a warning, roach skins and droppings can make (only those people who have cockroach allergies) who live with asthma have asthma attacks. So if someone in your family has asthma and you cant figure out whats causing the attacks, it COULD be the roaches.

Cockroaches don't cause asthma. The original study says that only those children with cokroach allergies had more severe asthma attacks in an infested home. A similar study in Australia showed an increase in attack severity due to dust mites but not cockroaches. Cats and dogs are known to cause asthma attacks. Of course the chemical and pest control companies latch onto this tiny grain, forget the details and make wild claims to scare people into buying their cancer causing environmental poisons for the mighty buck.
