dangers of asthma

Anthony Shadid was on location in Syria working on a story for The New York Times when he had a fatal asthma attack. It happened so quickly that no one was able to do anything for him. Asthma is a very dangerous condition and needs to be taken seriously. There are a number of triggers that can cause an attack. Shadid's trigger may have been a combination of horse dander, mold, and dust. I know first-hand about the dangers as I suffer from asthma. The smoking ban may not be real popular with some but I have to say that it has made my life much more bearable. Shadid
