In the 80’s, Superman Also Fought Asthma

I was diagnosed with asthma when I was five.  My family lived in eastern Berks County and I still remember the late-night trip to the hospital in Allentown during my first  attack. Before I experienced the condition first-hand, everything I knew about the disease came from a 30-second public service announcement featuring Superman. Kids with asthma were supposed to ask their parents to call the American Lung Association for a pack of free information, or, as it appeared to me at the time, free Superman stuff. To be honest, I felt left out and thought asthma must be awesome if it got the Man of Steel to show up at your pick-up baseball games.

Obviously, I was wrong. Asthma is not awesome.  Superman does not show up at pick-up baseball games.  Chunk from The Goonies did not eat his weight in Godfather pizza.

But DC Superheroes did have their own cookbook.

  1. Hey there. I noticed your website title, “In the 80’s, Superman Also Fought Asthma | CHRISTOPHER COCCA”
    does not really reflect the content of your web site.

    When writing your blog title, do you believe
    it’s best to write it for Search engine optimization or for your audience? This is one thing I’ve
    been struggling with because I want great rankings but at the
    same time I want the best quality for my visitors.
