5. Pollution is a factor in dealing with your asthma.
While pollution may not cause asthma, it can certainly trigger attacks, leaving those who do suffer from asthma vulnerable to environmental conditions. Air pollution can come from many sources ranging from factories to automobiles. Pay close attention to the air quality reports and if the pollution levels in your neighborhood are high, stay inside.
6. Dust mites can affect your asthma.
Similarly, dust mites, which are tiny bugs that are in almost every home (YUCK!), can trigger an attack by getting into your airways and aggravating your lungs. Mites survive well in mattresses, carpets, furniture and bedding…and let us all cringe in unison. Dust mites can be avoided by keeping a covering (mattress cover) on your bed and be sure to wash bedding at least once a week to keep the allergy-inducing germs away from your body.
