Low-income housing residents who live in ‘green’ buildings that are built with eco-friendly materials and energy-efficient features appear to have fewer ‘sick building’ symptoms than residents of traditionally constructed low-income housing, according to a new study. Asthma outcomes — hospitalizations, attacks, and missed school days due to asthma — were also significantly lower for children living in the green buildings.
