10 Best Big Cities for People With Asthma
5. Abilene, Texas
2014 rank: 27
Abilene is the only one of the top 10 asthma cities with a low asthma rate (the rest are average).
In 2006, the city adopted a ban on smoking in workplaces and in public places. Despite this, the frontier town only has an average rating for smoke-free laws. Maybe similar legislation in the works to regulate e-cigarettes and liquid nicotine will help.
