Asthma: Many people are affected by chronic diseases due to climate change. One of them is asthma. 15-20% of people in this world suffer from this respiratory disease. Coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath and snoring during sleep. Air ducts are the places where the air we breathe in during the day goes into the lungs and comes out again. Due to muscle inflammation due to various reasons, the vessels become narrow, and it becomes difficult to inhale and exhale air rapidly. Even if we walk for a while or work, we get tired quickly. These symptoms indicate asthma.
