Asthma disease in Pakistan

2067

Asthma disease is one of the most common and fateful diseases in Pakistan which affects the lungs of a person. The disease is growing day by day in our country. According to a report, around 7.5 million Pakistani adults and 15 million children are suffering from Asthma due to the urban population, air pollution, enlarging intercity industries and other environmental issues. That is really destroying the young generation of the country.
Actually, Tobacco smoke and outdoor pollution are known causes of asthma diseases, affecting our children, because most of the people smoke openly and do not care about children. This is the reason today 10 percent of children and 5 per cent of adults are victim of asthma. It is responsibility of the government and heath authorities to implement new laws for stopping environmental problems. Do not let people smoke tobacco at public places.
