Patient discussion about log

Q. Does anyone have an issue with fire log? Every time my neighbors use fire log, I suffer. What can I do? I moved to the West Coast, and realized people burn a lot of fire logs here. I seem to have developed an allergy to it. Every winter, I suffer when neighbors use fire logs. I can not go around the whole neighborhood asking them not to use it. I am wondering if there's any patient advocacy to prohibit the usage of fire logs? I am sure there must be a lot of asthma patients who have the same problem with mine? If we regulate smoking, why can't we regulate fire logs?

A. I found some info like this.


I wish there's a regulation. If the healthcare cost is an issue for the government, they can reduce emergency visits due to asthma, by regulating fire logs.
