I am writing this as a concerned father of two
young children who are sick all winter with one pulmonary infection after
another. My son loves nothing more than playing football, but lately I've been
wondering if we should be letting him do that, as every night after he plays,
he has a deep wheeze in his lungs. Seeing this terrifies me - it is not natural
for a child to have to work so hard to breathe. How did something as innocent
as playing football become a hazard to our children's health?
