In an era where health-consciousness and well-being have become paramount, the dangers of smoking are no secret. Smoking is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths worldwide, contributing to a range of health issues, including cardiovascular diseases, cancer and respiratory problems. Among these respiratory problems, bronchial asthma stands out as a condition that is closely intertwined with smoking. Bronchial asthma, often referred to simply as asthma, is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways. This narrowing makes it difficult for individuals with asthma to breathe, leading to symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness. Asthma can range from mild to severe and is often triggered by various factors, including allergies, respiratory infections and exposure to irritants.
