Asthma is basically a breathing problem. Millions of people all around the world suffer from Asthma.

History of this day

Every day has its own history and World Asthma Day too have its own history. World Asthma Day was initially established in 1998 by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA). While almost all of us are familiar with the sound and visual of an inhaler for Asthma being used, not all of us are aware of the actual nature, cause, and that there are multiple types of asthma out there. The truth of the matter is, asthma is not entirely understood, what is known is that there are multiple factors at play in the complex chemistry that creates an asthma sufferer. These include genetic interactions and elements in the environment that can change both the severity and how likely it is to respond to treatment.

Asthma can cause from allergens, air pollution, and other chemicals that can appear in the environment that irritate the lungs. In high enough concentrations these factors can cause serious asthma attacks in sufferers as well. Delhi always remains on red alert in terms of pollution so of course so called Delhiites are more vulnerable to this disease. Asthma is incredibly prevalent in those areas that have low air quality as a result, and those areas also tend to be those that house low-income and minority communities.
