Asthma is a chronic lung disease caused by inflammation of the  lower airways and episodes of airflow obstruction. Asthma episodes or  attacks can vary from mild to life-threatening. In 2007, about 7%  percent of the U.S. population was diagnosed with asthma and there have  been a growing number of new cases since that time. There are several  known risk factors identified as triggers of asthma symptoms and  episodes, including inhalation of allergens or pollutants, infection,  cold air, vigorous exercise, and emotional upsets. There is also growing  evidence relating body-mass index to asthma in both children and  adults. Design a study to investigate whether there is such an  association.

Choose a study design and justify the reasons you chose the design over others.
