Continuing to work in a dusty environment will cause continued and worsening problems with Asthma. It can make him much more susceptible to colds, flu, and lots of other upper respiratory infections. The ideal choice would be to find another job in a cleaner atmosphere. If he can't or doesn't want to, or can't afford to, then he needs to wear breathing protection the whole time he is at work. That means a respirator with the appropriate filters, not a little clip-on mask. At the very least, he should wear one of those dust masks with a plastic frame that fits his face and covers both his nose and mouth. The respirator would be much better, because long-term exposure to very dusty environments causes some serious long-term lung problems. After work, he needs to shower as soon as possible, and put his work clothes into a plastic bag until he can put them into the washer. The dust on his clothes can also cause an asthma attack. It would be a good idea to change out of them on a porch or in a mud room, and not wear them into the house at all. If the Advair isn't helping enough, there are other preventatives that may be more effective, including one that is a pill. If he continues to use albuterol so frequently, that can have some negative effects too.

Is whole grain popcorn organic?

All popcorn is whole grain. If the grains (kernels, really) of popcorn were not left intact, the popcorn wouldn't be able to 'pop'. The '100% whole grain!' labels that have begun to appear on microwave popcorn are nothing more than a marketing scam. 'Whole grain' popcorn is no different from any other popcorn. It isn't better for your health; it's just from a company that has smart people working in the marketing department. To answer the question, then, a label indicating a 'whole grain' popcorn product does not tell you whether or not the popcorn is organic. Look for a specific certification on the packaging if you wish to purchase organic popcorn.

What is the benefit if any between 147 grain standard ammo and 124 grain plus p?

The 147 and 124 grain are bullet weights. The 124 grain bullet loaded to higher pressures (+P) will have a higher velocity than the standard load with a heavier 147 bullet. As far as penetration goes, I have seen tests where the 147 grain out performed the 115 grain +P but the 124 grain +P should be a good all around round.
