Adult women are more affected by asthma than men.
 
Experts have found that until puberty, boys have higher rates of asthma than girls. However, a new study finds women in their 40's and 50's are hospitalized more than twice as often for asthma symptoms than men in that age group. 
 
Researchers say this may mean asthma has specific biological traits common in young boys and older women.
