Asthma is a common inflammatory disease of the airways. Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. It affects 7% of the United States, 5% of British people, and a total of 300 million worldwide. Athsma also causes 250,000 deaths per year worldwide.
I am not a specialist but I know you can get it after you have been exposed to irritants for a long time that cause your immune system to over-react. Sadly so many children already have asthma, caused by anything from smog to food to baby powder. As for myself, I usually do not suffer from asthma, h…owever I seem to have an episode of a few months every decade following a severe cold with bronchitis. The type that is viral and bacterial. This predisposition was probably acquired while I worked in a carpenter shop for a few years (dust, glass fibre). theres usually 2c in the air but when theres 5c (like in Cuban cigars) in the air, people would inhale it and that's how people get asthma Asthma is something you are born with and you can't catch it. It never goes away and is a non curable disease. ( Full Answer )
Asthma is a gene in your family such as:ancestors,your mother,your father.etc.....which would be passed down through generations.So it depends.
Hi Brother, What is asthma? Asthma is a long-lasting (chronic) disease of the lungs and airways (bronchi) that affects 5 people in every 100. In children, this figure is higher and rising. Asthma is characterised by attacks of breathlessness, tight chest, wheezing and coughing which are… caused by the airways becoming narrowed and inflamed. Some people may have these symptoms all of the time and others may be normal between attacks. How do you get asthma? Asthma can arise at any age, but why some people have the disease and others don't is not known. People with asthma have airways that are more sensitive than normal. . Doctors know, however, that asthma can sometimes run in families. . Asthma attacks can be set off by many different things, these are called triggers. Examples include cold air, vigorous exercise and stress. . These triggers may also include 'allergens'. These are present in the environment and contain chemicals that trigger allergic reactions. . Allergens include, for example, pollen, animal danders, house dust, pollution, some foods, perfumes and cigarette smoke. . Allergens cause the lining of the airways to become swollen and inflamed. It produces extra mucus and the muscles of the airways tighten. There is then less room for the air to pass in and out. . Attacks may be more frequent or severe in people who have a chest infection.

You can get asthma by feeling chest tight or wrestling or even coughing too much maybe because someone in your family has it so if these symptoms come up call your doctor or tell your people you may have asthma.
The word "Statistics" which comes from the Latin words status , meaning a political state, originally meant information useful to the state, for example, information about the sizes of population sand armed forces. But this word has now acquired different meanings. Â· In the first place , the wo…rd statistics refers to "numerical facts systematically arranged". In this sense, the word statistics is always used in plural. We have, for instance, statistics of prices, statistics of road accidents, statistics of crimes, statistics of births, statistics of educational institutions, etc. In all these examples, the word statistics denotes a set of numerical data in the respective fields. This is the meaning the man in the street gives to the word Statistics and most people usually use the word data instead. Â· In the second place , the word statistics is defined as a discipline that includes procedures and techniques used to collect, process and analyze numerical data to make inferences and to research decisions in the face of uncertainty. It should of course be borne in mind that uncertainty does not imply ignorance but it refers to the incompleteness and the instability of data available. In this sense, the word statistics is used in the singular. As it embodies more of less all stages of the general process of learning, sometimes called scientific method , statistics is characterized as a science. Thus the word statistics used in the plural refers to a set of numerical information and in the singular, denotes the science of basing decision on numerical data. It should be noted that statistics as a subject is mathematical in character. Â· Thirdly , the word statistics are numerical quantities calculated from sample observations; a single quantity that has been so collected is called a statistic . The mean of a sample for instance is a statistic. The word statistics is plural when used in this sense. ( Full Answer )
Statistics is a branch of mathematics in which data of a specific topic can be organized and show in a clearly way.

instric asthma is when you dont need an inhaler exinstric asthma is when you do need an inhaler. Traditionally, doctors have divided asthma into two general categories, Extrinsic (allergic) asthma and Intrinsic (non-allergic) asthma, depending upon the types of stimuli that trigger attacks.. Extri…nsic asthma is caused by an immune system response to inhaled allergens such as pollen, animal dander or dust mite particles. An allergen (or an antigen) is a foreign particle that enters the body. The immune system over-reacts to these often harmless items, forming antibodies, which are normally used to attack viruses or bacteria.. Intrinsic asthma is not allergy-related and is caused by anything except an allergy. It may be caused by inhalation of chemicals such as cigarette smoke or cleaning agents, taking aspirin, a chest infection, stress, laughter, exercise, cold air, food preservatives or a myriad of other factors.. The terms intrinsic and extrinsic asthma have now been replaced by terms related to the asthma trigger, since the inflammatory response of the airways is the same independent of the cause of the asthma. What was known as extrinsic asthma is now called allergic asthma, while asthma triggered by non-allergic factors, formerly called intrinsic asthma, is separated into such categories as exercise-induced asthma and occupational (chemical- induced) asthma.. Inhalers may be prescribed for both allergic asthma (extrinsic) and non-allergic asthma (intrinsic). ( Full Answer )

Statistics is the name of the subject. It is the general definition which deals with the collection, presentation and interpretation of data. On the other hand, statistic is a test used to test a hypothesis. It is commonly applied to sample cases. A statistic is a description of some measure, such… as your height, weight, or age. Such measures may be collected in large numbers to be analyzed statistically to determine some characteristic of a population. For example, the collection of a population's ages make up a data base that may be analyzed by statistical methods to determine the proportion of the population that will retire and start drawing pension funds during the next decade.

A statistic (singular) is simply the count of something. Statistics (plural) is the count of something added to or compared to the count of something else.
For decades, biostatistics has played an integral role in modern medicine in everything from analyzing data to determining if a treatment will work to developing clinical trials. The School of Global Public Health defines biostatistics as "the science of obtaining, analyzing and interpreting data in… order to understand and improve human health." Virtually any medical research study uses biostatistics from beginning to end. "Statisticians help medical researchers design studies, decide what data to collect, analyze data from medical experiments, help interpret the results of the analyses, and collaborate in writing articles to describe the results of medical research." To make it even plainer: biostatistics helps researchers make sense of all the data collected to decide whether a treatment is working or to find factors that contribute to diseases. As such, it is important that statistics are used in medicine in order to justify the development and subsequent use of a particular drug or treatment; as well as identifying in the first place whether it is having the desired effect at all. At the heart of the use of statistics in medicine is the seemingly insurmountable problem that everybody is different. Not only in a psychological sense, but a physiological sense too. While human beings may share similar organs, tissues and chemical compounds; how they are bonded, how we are composed and the effects different drugs have on the individual can be radically different from one person to the next. Therefore, to measure the effectiveness of any form of medication, it is important to run trials where a wide variety of subjects are administered the drug. Firstly, this helps gage the effectiveness of the medicine when compared to, for example, a placebo. Subsequent statistical analysis can also give medical professionals and pharmaceutical companies the information they need to judge whether the medicine is an effective treatment for the majority of patients; and whether it is a cost-effective solution to a particular ailment.

Statism is the doctrine that maintains that your life, money andproperty are not yours, but the property of the state. A statist isany individual who upholds this doctrine and/or supports itsimplementation. A statist knows that he cannot get away with-at least, notyet-openly declaring that your lif…e, money and property are notyours, so he advances these ideas by implicit means. Statists enact laws that forbid you from taking certain actionsaltogether or only if you have their permission-and the idea is: ifyou may only act by permission, you do not have a right to yourlife. Statists, through their regulations, determine how much of yourmoney you will be allowed to keep-and the idea is: if you do nothave the right to decide how your money is spent, your money is notyours. Statists issue decrees restricting how you may use yourproperty-and the idea is: if you do not have the right to controlthe use and disposal of your property, your property is not yours.These are the indirect means by which statists promote andimplement their ideas.

No, you either grow into it or you are born with it. You can't catch it like a cold!!
Having asthma is a very scary thing, and should not be laughed at. You have to take medicine very often, and playing sports gets very difficult. Having an attack is hard to imagine unless it has happened to you. Try breathing through a very thin straw. Feel your throat hurt. Your lungs burn for more… air that you can't have. You will start to feel dizzy, lightheaded. You will take the straw out and take a few deep breathes. Asthmatics can't do that. We have to take a puff or to, and pray that it ends. You don't want to know what it's like to have asthma. ( Full Answer )

I presume this should have said prevent asthma, however it did make me notice the fact that there is a product Iâve used called Provent from\nBiohealth with great success as it is natural and I am nervous\nabout the side affects of chemical products. Whilst it contains the standard\nwarning of… use for children over a certain age, I have heard of people who no\nlonger have to take any medication or even the Provent after months of use, as\nit actually helps repair the damage to the respiratory system, giving the body\na chance to heal.

Statistics is a general field of numeric quantities and what they represent. For example, a statistic may be inferential or descriptive. Inferential statistics are special kinds of statistics that use sampling distributions to make inferences from a sample to a population of interest (hopefully that… the sample represents). The inferences are more or less valid based on how well one meets the assumptions of a statistical method/model and how robust a statistical method is with respect to violations of an assumption.

Notice that the word statistics is closely related to the word state . Some statistical methods were initially developed by governments as ways of gaining greater control over their populations although it must be said that at the same general time in history individuals such as Florence Nigh…tingale were using statistical methods to try to influence governments to take better care of their citizens. Nowadays we use statistics whenever we can reasonably assume that random phenomena are at play that we need to take in to account. ( Full Answer )
