Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month



May has been declared to be "National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month" by the Allergy Foundation of America. For those who suffer with asthma and allergies most likely the heat and May flowers have flared up your condition. Now is the time for all those in your life from parents, family, friends, co-workers and others to learn about the disease

Asthma is a chronic disease of the lung airways. In an asthma attack the airway becomes inflamed and narrows as a result of reacting to "certain triggers" , making it extremely hard for that individual to breath.



Asthma has no cure and allergies continue on with no cure in sight either. Asthma and allergy attacks are preventable with proper treatment and care. It is estimated that 10 deaths a day will be due to asthma, with more than 24 million Americans knowing first hand the effects of asthma. Children under than the age of 18 account for 6 million. The number of those suffering with allergies continues to climb with more than 50 million Americans suffering from all allergies including pollen, skin, latex and more




Although there is no cure for this disease, people with chronic asthma can have productive lives by taking the necessary steps to keep asthma under control.
