World map showing deaths due to Asthma

Millions of people across the globe are suffering from asthma. Unfortunately, there is no cure for asthma; however, avoiding triggers may help in preventing it. Many outdoor allergens and irritants such as pollen, mold, dust mites, air pollution, cold air, etc., can lead to asthma and thus these need to be avoided. In some cases, treatment also works well and the patient may have to use an inhaler.

For some people, asthma may be minor, but for others it is a big nuisance and may create problems in their day-to-day activities. However, at times it may even become life threatening and may lead to death.

According to a World Health Organization (WHO) data,  India  is the most affected nation. As per the data, in the year 2015, 55,184 people in the country died from asthma.
