    In 2005, nearly 4,000 Americans died of asthma. Asthma’s impact on health, quality of life, and the economy remain substantial.

    The initial onset of asthma cannot be prevented, and asthma cannot be cured. However, asthma can be controlled. People who have asthma can lead high-quality, productive lives. Asthma can be controlled by following a medical management plan and avoiding contact with environmental “triggers.” These triggers include allergens such as mold, pet dander, cockroaches, and dust mites, or irritants such as tobacco smoke, certain chemicals, and other environmental exposures.
