Asthma Research:
Help To Find A Better Way

Asthma research is one of the best ways to tackle this troublesome disease. It is the most common respiratory disease found in humanity. While millions of people suffer from this disease worldwide, asthma research has only begun to touch the ways to improve breathing.

Asthma is a chronic medical condition in which the lining of the lungs are oversensitive to certain allergens. It leads to inflammation of lung airways and unavoidable breathing problems.

Broadly, it is caused by the environment and genetic factors. In some cases, a person becomes sensitive to pollens and strong smells and feels tightness in chest when exposed to such a condition. Other reasons can be the social and economic state of a person. Only asthma research can really show the real story.

The history of asthma research dates back to the times of Greek, when Hippocrates recognized it as one of the diseases. Although the diagnosis is pretty simple and symptoms can be cleared quickly, there is no easy way to deal with it. Proper asthma management can be kept under control through disciplined intake of asthma medications and treatments.

Although asthma research has been carried out a long time now, it still remains as an incurable disease. But current research can teach us how to prevent and treat symptoms.
