Fresh air does not smell of fragrance

Frisk luft lukter ikke av parfyme.

Fungerer det alltid på ren vilje? – Does pure will always work?

(Scroll down for English)

Fungerer det alltid på ren vilje?

Det er ofte man hører om mennesker med handikap som klarer de mest fantastiske ting  på ren viljestyrke, de gir ikke opp, og gjennomfører. Det er inspirerende og viser på både mot og vilje å mestre. Et eksempel på disse er Jessica Cox. Hun har ingen armer og har lært seg å fly.

 

Mennesker som har handikap og står fram med alt de kan er en inspirasjonskilde både for handikappede og fult fungerende mennesker, de har gjort seg fortjent av det. Men baksiden av myntet er at de som ikke kan gjøre slike ting blir litt sett ned på eller syns synd på. Ja, ikke av alle og ikke alltid, men hvis du ikke viser den holdningen da blir du gjerne sett på som negative. Men er man det?

Ta astma for eksempel. Mange sliter med forurensning i luften av parfymer i forskjellige varianter enten det er ren parfyme eller tilsatt i andre produkter, essensielle oljer,  doftljus, røykelse, så kalte luftoppfriskere enten det er duftgraner, duftblokker eller maskiner som pumper ut duft på timer osv, tobakk, parfymerte rengjøringsmidler, vaskemilder , tøymyknere og oppvaskmilder mv. I et samfunn der det å gjøre ting på ren vilje og nå success blir sett på som heltedåd bildes det også et klima der om du sier det ikke går da blir du litt sett ned på, eller sett på som negative.

Astma er erkjent som et handikap av både WHO, EFA, og LDO, da det er en fysisk sjukdom som lager hindringer i hverdagen. Mange som har handikap kan overvinne sine handikap på ren vilje, men går det med astma? Mange som sier at om du bare tar medisin da kan du leve som alle andre og ikke ha noen bekymringer, enten lyver de eller så forteller de ikke hele sannheten for deg. Det kommer nemlig litt an på hva du blir sjuk av og hvor alvorlig din astma er.

Jeg beundrer veldig damer som Jessica Cox og alle andre med henne som klarer å overvinne sine handikap og gjøre ting uansett akkurat som alle andre. Samtidlig blir jeg litt trist og bevisst på mine egne handikap som jeg ikke kan rå for og ikke kan rå på.

En person som har astma (eller annen sensitivitet som reagerer på de samme betingelsene) som går inn i et rom der det blir brukt fragrance marketing, s.k. luftoppfrisker, parfyme på mennesker og klær, hårspray, duftlys, røykelse, sterke rengjøringsmidler og parfymerte rengjøringsmidler, parfymerte vaskemidler og oppvaskmidler mv kan den gå inn i og oppholde seg i et rom der alt dette er på ren vilje? Nei, det går ikke, ikke engang med medisiner, i hvert fall ikke de av denne gruppen som har sensitivitet mot disse stoffene i luften. Ja noen har mer sensitivitet enn andre, andre har noe mindre, men felles er at det går ikke å oppholde seg i et rom der det er uren luft. Å oppholde seg i dette miljøet på ren vilje slik som andre handikappede kan overvinne sine handikap er ikke mulig for mange med astma, allergi eller annen sensitivitet, det spiller ingen rolle hvor mye man vil, det går ikke.

Det handler ikke om vilje, jeg kan stå utenfor og ville være med, det handler ikke om positivitet eller negativitet, jeg kan ville gå inn og visst kan jeg gå inn fordi beinene fungerer og det er fult mulig å gå inn, men om jeg gjør det da blir jeg så sjuk av luftforurensningen i rommet at jeg må gå ut med en gang og jeg er sjuk i flere timer etterpå, ja kanskje flere dager. Det straffer seg og jeg må medisinere med astmamedisin mye og lenge, og ofte så mye at jeg må overdosere og får bivirkninger av det.  Det har ikke med vilje eller negativitet å gjøre, det har heller ikke med medisin å gjøre fordi jeg har all medisin mot min astma jeg kan ha, det er bare ikke nok. Jeg sakner litt det der at det er nok å ha viljen, at det er nok å ville og bare gjøre, fordi vilje har jeg masse av men det er ikke noe hjelp i det, lungene bryr seg ikke det minste i viljen min, lungene de gjør som de vil uavhengig av hva jeg måtte ønske eller ville være med på. Medisinen er bare nok til for å holde meg frisk så lenge som jeg kan unngå alle de stoffene i luften som gjør meg sjuk.

Derfor er det viktig at du er med å hjelper slik at luften er ren og fri fra disse stoffene, fordi da kan jeg og alle andre med samme handikap være med overalt!

Jeg og du har kun behov for ren luft.

ps Dette gjelder nok alle andre allergier også, jeg antar det etter hva andre allergikere har fortalt meg, slik at møt ikke de som er allergiske med “- Ta medisin!” eller “- Det gjør jeg som jeg vil!” fordi da er du med på å gjøre mennesker vondt. Og slik oppførsel blir sett  på som veldig negative på av de som er allergiske.

Is it always enough with sheer determination?

It is often one hears about people with disabilities who manages the most amazing things on sheer willpower, they do not give up, and conducts. It is inspiring and shows both courage and determination to master. An example of these is Jessica Cox. She has no arms and learned how to fly a airplane.

 

People who have disabilities and show all they can is a source of inspiration for both the disabled and fully functioning human beings, and they truly deserve it. But the backside of the coin is that those who can not do such things are in a way a little looked down upon or felt sorry for. Yes not all and not always, but if you do not show the attitude when you are usually seen as negative. But is this true?

Take for example asthma. Many struggle with pollution in the air from perfume, scented candles and ordinary candles, incense, fragrance and strong smelling hairspray, body spray, fragrance deodorants, so called air-freshener whether it is scent blocks, manual or equipment that pumps out scent on timers etc., tobacco, fragrance detergents, fabric softeners, cleaning agents, etc. In a society where doing things on sheer will, overcoming issues and success doing so is seen as heroic, makes also a climate where if you say it does not go then you become somewhat looked down upon or seen as negative.

Asthma is recognized as a handicap by the WHO, EFA, and LDO, when it is a physical illness that creates obstacles and hinders in everyday life. Many people who have disabilities can overcome their handicap on sheer will, but does this go with asthma?

I very much admire ladies like Jessica Cox and everyone else with her who manage to overcome their handicap and do things anyway, just like everyone else does. At the same time I get a little sad and conscious of my own handicap as I can not be blamed for it and that I can not rule over it.

A person who has asthma (or other sensitivities that responds to the same conditions) that go into a room where it is used fragrance marketing, s.c. air-freshener, perfume on people and clothing, fragrance hair sprays, body sprays, fragrance deodorants, scented candles, incense, strong detergents and perfumed cleaners, etc. may enter and reside in a room where all this is the sheer determination? No, it is not possible, not even with medication, at least not those of this group who have sensitivity to these substances in the air. Some are not even helped by medicine. Yes some have more sensitivity than others, others have  less, but common is that one can not get in a room where it is impure air. To remain in this environment of pure will like other disabled people can overcome their handicap is not possible for many people with asthma and allergies, it does not matter how much you want to, it doesn’t work.

It’s not about will, I can stand outside and would like be with, it’s not about positivity or negativity, I could go and certainly I can go because my legs works and it is entirely possible to get in, but if I do then I become so sick of air pollution in the room that I have to get out right away. It has nothing to do with negativity, nor have it anything to do with medicine to take because I have all the medicine for my asthma I need, it’s just not enough. I shows that it actually is not enough to have the will, that it is not enough to want to and just do, because I want to a lot but there is no help in it, the lungs do not care the least what I want, the lungs they do what they want regardless of what I want or would like to  participate. The medicine only helps to keep me healthy as long as I avoid the substances that is not air.

Therefore, it is important that you help so that the air is clean and free from these substances, because then I and all others with the same disability can be everywhere!

I and You only need clean air.

ps This is probably true for all other allergies as well, I guess that after what other allergy sufferers have told me, so do not meet those who are allergic with “- Take your medicine!” or “- I do as I like!” because then you are to make people hurt. And such behavior is seen as very negative by those who are allergic.

~Honesty is not negativity ~

Hva er astma? What is Asthma?

(Scroll down for English)

Hva er egentlig astma for noe?

En liten kjapp lesning på legevakthåndboken så finner man dette:

“Anfallsvis opptredende obstruksjon av luftstrømmen i små og store luftveier. Symptomene skyldes redusert luftveiskaliber som følge av spasmer i bronkienes glatte muskulatur, slimhinneødem og/eller økt bronkial sekresjon. Etiologien er ufullstendig kjent, men både arv og miljøfaktorer spiller en rolle. Enkelte har allergi (mugg, midd, dyrehår, pollen) og har nytte av allergimedisiner (særlig barn og unge). Uspesifikk bronkial hyperreaktivitet er vanlig (bronkokonstriksjon ved eksposisjon for stimuli som kulde, tobakksrøyk, parfyme, luftforurensning, fysisk anstrengelse, enkelte medikamenter, luftveisinfeksjoner og emosjonell ubalanse). Både pasienter, pårørende og leger undervurderer ofte alvorlighetsgraden av akutte astmaanfall. Slik undervurdering kan forsinke livreddende behandling. Alle henvendelser om akutt astma bør tas på alvor med umiddelbart tilsyn av pasient.” Legevakthåndboken

Really? What is asthma?

A fast read at the Norwegian ER book online one find

“Paroxysmal occurring obstruction of airflow in the large and small airways. The symptoms caused by reduced airway caliber caused by spasms in the bronchial smooth musculature, mucosal edema and / or increased bronchial secretion. The etiology is incomplete known, but both genetic and environmental factors play a role. Some people have allergies (mold, mites, animal hair, pollen) and benefit from allergy medications (particularly young people). Non-specific bronchial hyperresponsiveness is common (bronchoconstriction by exposure to stimuli such as cold, tobacco smoke, fragrance, air pollution, physical exertion, certain drugs, respiratory infections and emotional imbalance). Both patients, families and physicians often underestimate the severity of acute asthma attacks. Such underestimation can delay life-saving treatment. All inquiries about acute asthma should be taken seriously with immediate supervision of the patient.” Norwegian Casualty handbook Legevakthåndboken

Moderate asthma attacks

  • The person can talk normally.
  • Respiratory (breathing rate) 50% predicted or optimal value
  • Pulse < 100/minute
  • PEF > 50% of predicted or optimal value

Acute severe asthma attacks

  • Too short of breath to say a whole sentence.
  • Respiratory (breathing rate)> 25 / minute
  • Pulse > 110 / minute
  • PEF <50% predicted or optimal value

Life-threatening asthma attacks

  • Decreasing or sparse strange noises
  • cyanosis or powerless effort breathing.
  • bradycardia or hypotension
  • Fatigue, confusion or unconsciousness.
  • PEF <33% of predicted or optimal value.

A prayer for insight

En bønn til innsikt

Da har jeg begynt på en 5 dagers kur med 20 mg Prednisolon 1×1, i tillegg til 4×2 Symbicort Forte 320/9 inhalasjoner, 10mg Singulair, 10 mg Ceterizin og 2 mg/ml Ventoline inhalasjoner det skal vel bli bedre nå håper jeg.

Jeg har sett begge sider av problemet, alle som ikke har astma bør være takknemlige over å være friske og slippe problemet, og hellre vise hensyn til dem som ikke er like heldige. Derav innlegget mitt i dag. Alle som ikke har astma skal vite hvor heldige dere er. Jeg var uten astma før 2007, og jeg har nå fått oppleve begge deler. Et liv uten astma er et lett liv i forhold.

Å ha astma er som å forsøke puste med en sportssokk stukket ned i de nedre luftveiene i lungene da du får et anfall, og du får i tillegg muskelkramper i lungene, slimdannelser i lungene, såre luftveier, og du hoster til du kaster opp, og kroppen må jobbe så hardt med dette at du til slutt blir helt mør og låk i kroppen.

Astma er en sjukdom i lungene, da en person som har astma blir sjuk da er det i bronkiene i lungene som det skjer.

Kan du se hvorfor det er provoserende da du sier til en allergisk person å bare ta seg en pille da du blir bedt om å vise hensyn? Dette er frokosten min. Bilde 2 er vedlikehold resten av dagen.

Til frokosten

Dette er ganske vanlig mengde medisin for en person med astma og allergi. Tror du ikke vi tar nok medisiner?

Bare fordi vi som har allergi og astma (ca 20-25% av verdenens mennesker) tar medisin betyr ikke det at vi ikke kan bli allergiske, medisin kurerer ikke sjukdomen den demper bare litt. Neste gang du blir bedt om å vise hensyn, gjør det.

Jeg leser i bland arrogante kommentarer fra folk da noen vil fortelle om sine behov av frisk luft, folk som sier ting som:

“Jeg røyker hvor jeg vil, det har du ikke noe med.”
“Det er hetsing og mobbing av røykere…”

Ber man dem om å ikke røyke da kan man få høre ting som jeg opplevde å få høre:

“- Jeg synes det blir litt mye av det der.”

Personen mente jeg klaget for mye.

Eller andre ting jeg har lest og bevitnet:

“Jeg bruker parfyme hvor jeg vil, det har du ikke noe med, det er min rett.”
“Om du ikke tåler parfyme så får du vel holde deg hjemme da.”
“Du bør ikke ta offentlig transport om du ikke tåler det, det kan bli forsinkelser om du blir sjuk.”

De skulle prøve å leve med astma noen år så kanskje dem ville bygge opp litt godt skjønn og omtenksomhet for andre. Det er jo ikke slik at man sier fra fordi man ikke har noe bedre fore. Man har en god grunn.

Med min gjennom egen erfaring ervervet kunnskap om astma blir jeg også meget provosert da folk sier:

“Jeg spiser hva jeg vil hvor jeg vil.”

Da jeg sier til dem at de bør kanskje la være å spise f.eks. de peanøttene til de kommer hjem.

Jeg har ikke matallergi men jeg vet hva det vil si å ha astma som er en luftbåren sensitivitet og kronisk betennelse i lungene som gir pustevansker da det er annet enn luft i luften.

Der er matallergi som er luftbåren, ergo om du spiser noe som for eksempel peanøtter eller andre matvarer kan det være en person som får alt fra kløe til anafylaktisk dødelig allergireaksjon.

Er det alltid så viktig å få gjøre akkurat som man vil overalt? Burde det ikke være litt viktig å tenke på andre enn seg selv også?

Akkurat som vi trenger å spise og drikke for å leve så trenger vi å puste. Vi MÅ gjøre begge delene for å leve.

Om du opplever at noe ikke skader deg så er ikke det gyldig for alle omkring deg. I ren luft er jeg og andre med samme problemet uten symptomer og puster uten problemer, det vil vi gjerne gjøre hver dag akkurat som du gjør.

Spis gjerne men helst hjemme, på restaurant og ellers ute. Kutt ut parfymerte produkter og røyken. Da kan alle ha en god dag, ikke bare du.

Vi kan ikke velge å la være å puste, men du kan velge å la være å bruke ting som forurenser luften vi alle deler.

A prayer for insight

Then I have started on a 5 day of 20 mg Prednisolone 1×1, as well as 4×2 Symbicort Forte 320/9 inhalations, 10mg Singulair, 10 mg Ceterizin and 2 mg / ml Ventoline inhalations and I hope it to be better now, I hope. I’ve seen both sides of the issue, anyone who does not have asthma should be grateful to be healthy and avoid the problem, and rather show respect to those who are not as fortunate. Hence my post today. Anyone who does not have asthma should know how lucky you are. I was without asthma prior to 2007, and I have now been able to experience both. Life without asthma is an easy life compared.

Having asthma is like trying to breathe with a sport sock tucked into the lower airways when you have an asthma attack, and there’s also muscle spasms in the lungs, mucus build ups in the lungs, sore airways and coughing until you throw up, and the body must work so hard on this that you eventually become completely tender and hurting in the body.

When a person having asthma get sick it is in the lower airways in the lungs called the bronchi the situation happens.

Can you see why it is provocative when you say to an allergic person to just take a pill when you are asked to show respect? This is my breakfast. Picture 2 is maintenance rest of the day.

This is rather normal for a person having asthma and allergy. Don’t you think we have to take enough medicine?

Just because we who have allergies and asthma (about 20-25% of worlds population) take medication does not mean that we can not become allergic, medicine does not cure the illness, it only dampen it just slightly. Next time you are asked to show respect, do it.

I read from time to time (rather very often) the arrogant comments from people when someone will tell about their need of fresh air, people who say things like:

“I smoke where I want, that you do not have anything to do with.”
“It’s bullying of smokers …”

If one ask one of them not to smoke, one can be told things that I experienced to hear:

“- I think it’s too much of that.”

The person thought I complained too much.

Or other things I have read and witnessed:

“I use perfume where I want, it’s not any of your buisness, that’s my right.”
“If you can not tolerate perfume you’d best stay home then.”
“You should not take public transportation if you get sick from it, it can be delays if you get sick.”

They should try to live with asthma a few years so maybe those would build up some good judgment and thoughtfulness for others. It is not so that one says all of this because one have nothing better to do. One has a good reason for it.

With my own personal experience and acquired knowledge about asthma I am provoced and angered when people say:

“I eat what I want where I want.”

When I tell them that maybe they should refrain from eating for example their peanuts until they get home.

I do not have food allergies but I know what it means to have asthma which is an airborne sensitivity and chronic inflammation of the lungs that causes breathing difficulties when there is nothing but only air in the air.

There are food allergies that are airborne, ergo if you eat something such as peanuts or other foods may be a person who gets everything from itching to a anaphylactic lethal allergy reaction.

Is it always important to do exactly what you want anywhere? Should not it be a little important to think about anyone but themselves as well?

Just as we need to eat and drink to live so we need to breathe. We MUST do both parts to be able to live, read survive. Breathing is essential to live.

If you feel that something does not hurt you it is not it valid for all around you. In clean air I and others with the same problem is without symptoms and breathe without problems, and this is something that we like to do every day just like you do.

Please, do eat but preferably eat at home, in a restaurant and elsewhere outdoors. Cut out using scented products and smoke. Then all have a good day, not just you.

We can not choose not to breathe, but you can choose not to use things that pollute the air we all share.

Help someone with asthma

What to do?

You can actually make a huge difference for everyone having asthma so they become more healthy and get a better life. Yes You!

What is asthma?

How to recognize asthma?

I know this person

If you know the person, ask what the person can not tolerate, allergies and other stuff they get sick from. When a person have asthma even things they are not allergic to can make their airways kick back and make trouble in form of an asthma attack. When you know what the person get sick from keep this away from the person at all times. If it is something you use yourself. STOP! even if you think in your own mind that it must be a silly thing.

I do not know this person

Around you there are many people who have asthma. One count that about 20-25 % of the population in a country have asthma. Worldwide (numbers from 2011) 300 million people have asthma, in Europe (counting from 2014) approximately 30 million people have asthma, and it is estimated that around 2036 about 400 million people will have asthma worldwide (information from World Health Organization WHO, Ginasthma.com, and EFA). In Norway for example there is in 2015 about 5 million people. 20 % out of 5 million people (counting low) is 1 million people who have asthma (5.000.000 x 0,20 = 1.000.000). How many live in your country? Count how many ( x million people times 0,xx equals?) So you see out of the hundred of people you see around you about 20 of those have asthma. And that is if we count low with 20 %. That is 20 people! So what can you do for all of those?

The nature of asthma is like this:

A person can be allergic to different things that causes asthma attacks, and in addition there are substances that causes irritation to the airways in the lungs causing asthma attacks even if the person is not allergic to them. Asthma comes in 4 different levels from mild to severe. Asthma can be deadly. To live you must be able to breathe, and the nature of asthma is trouble breathing. Think about this when you travel in the room where the public have access, and also in your home if your friends or family have asthma.

Common triggers for asthma:

  • Tobacco smoke
  • Vaping – some but not all react to vaping
  • Fragrance (both male and female scents) – both from the bottle and added to other products.
  • Incense
  • Scented candles and candles
  • Air fragrance, also known as signature scent
  • Airfreshener – what you use to hide bad odor or to fragrance the room
  • Animals – most common is fur and birds. But remember that it is not only the fur and the feathers that is source for the allergy, saliva and skin dandruff too.
  • Food – most commonly known is nuts and peanuts and that is both the whole nut or added to food and oils. Nut allergy can be fatal both taken in and airborne. But even milk, egg, fish and other foods can give such reaction both by eating it and airborne.
  • Exhaust from vehicles, both diesel and gasoline, and maybe others. Gas – actually most people have it bad from gas, but people with asthma have it even worse since they do not tolerate even smaller amounts.
  • Gassing from stuff – it can be gas from filling petrol, diesel, oil, alcohols, solvents, new plastic, cleaning products, ammonia, among many other things.
  • Dust of various kinds, not only house dust.
  • Pollen
  • Flowers
  • Grass
  • Evaporates

So how can you make the world better for a person having asthma to avoid the person get an asthma attack? It is actually rather easy.

  • Do not smoke or vape around other people. Smoke outside away from entrances and ask before you light a cigarette or e-cigarette.
  • Cut out the fragrance and fragranced products, only use fragrance free. The emissions, pollution, from fragrance and fragrance products cause asthma attacks. If you use fragrance and someone tells you to stay clear it is not to be rude it is to stay healthy.  Take the hint and go fragrance free.
  • Do not use incense, it pollutes the air. A sensitive person gets asthma attacks from it (even outdoors). If a person tells you not to use it, it is not to be rude, it is not to be against your religion, it is to stay healthy.
  • Do not use candles and scented candles since they emit a lot of invisible chemicals to the air that triggers an asthma attack. And the smoke from putting them out is just as bad.
  • Airfresheners, products giving away scent and signature scent for marketing is a big no! no! it goes under the same as Fragrance.
  • Turn the engine off as soon as you have stopped the car.
  • Think of fire smoke and other kinds of smoke, gas and off-gassing as pollution and keep such away from others. Ask before you do something that can emit to the air.
  • Avoid if possible to bring animals where there are a lot of people. A rather big percent of the 20 % of the population is allergic. That also goes for your clothes if  you have been around animals. Change your clothes to allergen free clothes and wash yourself.
  • Flowers are lovely, unfortunately many is allergic, so if possible try to keep the flowers packed in during transport home. And if you are going to give someone flowers, ask if they are allergic to it before buying it. Maybe something else is a better gift?
  • Dust and dirty – Keep the place clean from dust, but use as less chemicals as possible to get as clean air as possible. Cleaning and washing agents goes under the same as fragrance products, it causes asthma attacks. Go fragrance free here!
  • Pollen, yes it is a natural thing and not your fault. What you can do is to think of all that is allergic to it, do not brush or dust it off indoors, and if someone tells you to hand your coat outside it is not to be rude it is to stay healthy.
  • Food – Avoid eating where other people travel the society. Of cource you can eat in a restaurant or a cafe’, but avoid eating other places. Rather many get sick from airborne food emits, and when you eat you might get it on handles, seating, doors and so on, and the next one get it on their hands and then in their mouth for example (grown and children).

Remember that things that emits and evaporates to the air can be for sensitive people as pollution regardless of the smell. It is not the smell that hurts it is what is in the smell. We are constructed to breathe air, nothing else. If someone tells you – No!, it is not to be rude, it is to stay healthy. Avoid to have things that evaporate and emits to the air where the public is. Make the air as fresh as possible without additives, additives that is for all of us sensitive nothing more than pollution. Maybe it is a new way of thinking for you, but regardless what you think of it, it is all sensitive persons reality. If you adopt the way of thinking you can make the air cleaner and fresher for us all to breathe. In that way you can help us stay healthy. In polluted air we get sick, in fresh air we are healty. It is that simple. Have a nice day. / Annelie

Still smoking?

Are you still smoking?

CrazyRussianHacker on YouTube.com made a experiment to see how fast a paper filter got stained.

I totally agree with him, smoking is disgusting. I can not understand how anyone can smoke. It must be the dumbest “joy” anyone can have. You stink from it, you pollute the air for everyone, you get sick from it, you make others sick from it, and you even pay for it all. How dumb is that?

Sympathetic smoker 2

He blew the smoke sky high

Today when I came from the store in my lunch break I met a man walking and smoking. When he saw me he literally turned his head away the other way and blew the smoke sky high the opposite way of me.

It is the very first time this have ever happened as I have experienced. Ok, the street was not smoke free, I felt it, but I would have felt it even more if he had not made the smoke go another direction.

Thank you!

Answer to Jan-Erik Gaup at origo.no

I went to the blog of dr Aage Hegge Hansen and read even one more of his good words and conclusions. In the comment field I found some rather disturbing comments from a guy Jan-Erik Gaup. He claims that smoking is not harmful to the lungs and airways, and he also claims fragrance is nothing anyone can become ill from. And even more he claims that people who say they become ill from fragrance have psychological issues, he says the fault is within them and not something else. This man stands very ignorant in my point of view. The comment field was closed for further comments so I just wrote a blogging on the matter. Lets just say I wanted to teach him a lesson.

Research: Smoke reduces HDAC2 in the body decreasing effect from medicines.

Smoke damage the effect of Asthma medicine

It is known that passive smoking worsens asthma symptoms and reduce the effectiveness of inhaled steroid treatment, but how this occurs has not been elucidated.

Now researchers at Imperial College in London found that a person with severe asthma who is constantly exposed to smoke, have lower levels of the enzyme HDAC2 compared to those who is not subjected to smoke. It is precisely HDAC2 necessary to steroids in asthma medicine should be able to have an anti-inflammatory effect.

Researchers at Imperial College in London found that children with severe asthma with a parent who smoke at home have lower levels of the enzyme compared with those whose parents do not smoke. HDAC2 is required to steroids in asthma medicine to be able to have an anti-inflammatory effect.

So if you smoke, or if you have asthma, and are around a smoker or a person having asthma, know that it will damage the effect of the asthma medicine.

Don’t smoke. And stay away from smokers!
