Hey, I'm new so forgive me if there have been any similar posts.
I just wondered what you guys blame for causing your Asthma?
Personally I blame polution, whether Asthma has been around before cars I do not know but I did hear that asthma is on the increase percentagewise.
My asthma is aggrevated by animals. If I am near cats, dogs or even horses. I run alot now which has helped me but if I run past a car sitting on the path with it's engine running I start to wheeze until I am clear of the fumes and breathing cleaner air. The air quality has a big effect on how well I breath when I am running. Shame I live in an urban area.
Those are what cause my symptoms but does anyone believe it is hereditary or is it the environment we live in. Do people in cleaner air areas suffer less? Are we allergic to the air in the british isles? I find my asthma is under control better when I am abroad, in hotter climates, even though my asthma is worse in the summer in the UK than the winter. Maybes my allergies are the reason for that as many hot countries don't have the grass.
Just curious on peoples thoughts on the causes of Asthma in the first place
