asthma information

Asthma is a chronic disease that affects the airways (small tubes that branch out from the lungs). Asthma cannot be cured, but most people with asthma can control the symptoms and lead active lives. With asthma, airways become inflamed and irritated in reaction to some kind of substance or situation, called a “trigger.” Common asthma triggers include: Allergens, such as pollen, mold, dust and dust mites, cockroaches; Irritants, such as pollution, cigarette smoke, cold air, strong odors, stress; Sulfites in food or beverages.
