The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology reports that one in every 12 Americans (eight percent of the U.S. population) has asthma. Asthma is a condition that affects the lungs causing the airways to narrow, making it difficult to breathe. Typically, asthma starts off in children and stays with a person throughout their life, but asthma can be triggered at any age.
In the summer, individuals suffering from asthma may be more prone to attacks. People may think that because the air is fresher and the weather is nicer they may not need to continue using their asthma medication, but this is not true. Asthma attacks can occur in the summer months, especially when air is humid, which makes it difficult to breathe.
