Some people simply forget to use them whilst others use them but not regularly enough to prevent asthma attacks, said lead author Kristin Carson, a doctoral student specializing in respiratory medicine at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Adelaide, Australia. She considers physical exercise a valuable alternative approach to help control asthma attacks. Asthma, a chronic condition, has become increasingly common in recent decades, note the reviews authors, affecting 350 million people worldwide and accounting for 1 in every 250 deaths.
