Stop The Habits of SMOKING
by Nur Sarina
If all people have stop smoking we will able to breath easily and the number of people getting asthma will reduce.
- Asthma. I'm sure that would work. This is one of many things that can be done to reduce what causes air pollution
and keep the earth and people healthy. I'm sure you can think of others.
Look at the benefits to the environment as more people quit the habit.Search

The link between smoking and respiratory health, including the development of asthma, is well established in research.
Here are a few smoking and asthma stats:
- Asthma and smoking: Smoking is well-established as a risk factor
for asthma, as well as for exacerbating asthma symptoms. Asthma is more common in smokers than non-smokers.
- Secondhand smoke and asthma: Exposure to secondhand smoke, which occurs when non-smokers breathe in smoke from others' cigarettes, is associated with an increased risk of asthma development. Asthma-related problems are more common in kids
exposed to secondhand smoke.
- World Health Organization (WHO) says 235 million people have asthma worldwide. Asthma prevalence varies between countries and populations, but it's a major public health issue.
- Quitting smoking has been shown to improve asthma control and reduce asthma-related exacerbations. As well as improving lung function, it's good for respiratory health.Asthma, smoking, and ambient air quality all have complex relationships. These are some key points:
1) Asthma and smoking: Smoking is a known risk factor for developing and worsening asthma. Active smoking (smoking cigarettes directly) and secondhand smoke can trigger asthma symptoms. Asthmatics should quit smoking to improve their respiratory health and reduce asthma symptoms.
2) In addition to particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and volatile organic compounds,
ambient air pollution can contribute to asthma development and exacerbation. When you're exposed to high levels of air pollution, you're more likely to develop asthma and have worse asthma symptoms.
3) People with asthma may have different triggers that worsen their symptoms. While air pollution is a known asthma trigger, not everyone is affected the same way. People with asthma may be more sensitive to specific pollutants or have other triggers, like allergens (e.g., pollen, dust mites) or occupational exposures (e.g., chemicals, fumes).
4) Asthmatics spend a lot of time indoors, so indoor air quality is important.
Secondhand smoke, mold, pet dander, and household chemicals can contribute to poor indoor air quality and trigger asthma symptoms. Healthy indoor environments for asthma sufferers include good ventilation, reducing indoor pollutants, and avoiding smoking.
5) Governments and public health agencies play a big role in improving ambient air quality and reducing pollution exposure. Measures like promoting clean energy, implementing emission controls, and establishing guidelines for indoor air quality can help.
Asthmatics should be aware of their triggers, like smoking and poor air quality, and take appropriate measures to manage their condition. Maintaining good respiratory health requires consulting with healthcare professionals and following their advice, including quitting smoking and reducing exposure to environmental triggers.
The statistics above show a link between smoking and asthma, but individual outcomes may vary. Genetics, environmental exposures, and other underlying health conditions can also influence asthma development and management.
