Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease caused by inflammation of the airways.  Common symptoms are wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath and chest tightness.  Asthma is believed to be caused by a combination of environmental and genetic factors.  Although you cannot control your genetic makeup, you can control some of the environmental factors that may cause you to develop asthma.
