1.9 million asthma sufferers...Can't be wrong!  

Asthma is a disease or condition of the lungs and the air passages to the lungs, or bronchi. This condition, when triggered, causes inflammation and swelling of the bronchial tract, which makes breathing difficult. It affects more than 7% to 10% of children and around 3% to 5% of adults.   

This condition afflicts men and women, young and old alike. The number of people suffering from asthma in the United States is estimated to be between fourteen to seventeen million, with a growing incidence in children.    Although mild asthma is not fatal, severe asthma can cause respiratory failure.

Approximately 5,000 people die due to asthma every year. Approximately 470,000 go for asthma treatments at a hospital, and 1.9 million patients need treatment at emergency rooms.    Over the past two decades, there has been an increasingly upward trend in the occurrence of asthma. There is no known specific cause or reason for this trend, although the factors under consideration include diet, exercise and heredity.   

Some people develop asthma in their childhood while others develop it in their thirties. In some cases, children outgrow their symptoms as they get older.    Asthma is a recurring or chronic inflammatory condition. Although simple lifestyle changes and drugs can help control asthma, it can be fatal if left untreated.
