Helping the Planet Goes Medical with Green Inhalers

The FDA is banning asthma inhalers that contain chemicals that harm the Earth's ozone layer and the law will take effect on January 1, 2009.  

 Some patients are wondering whether going green to save the earth can be as effective in saving asthma patients. Patients are complaining that the new inhalers leave a different taste and that they require much more cleaning to prevent clogs.  

 Moreover, perhaps the biggest issue, they cost more and there is no generic version of the "green" inhalers.
