    A really GREAT article :-) Very well thought out and explained, and the addition of the usual brand names (Ventolin, Singulair, etc.) is very helpful.
    Thanks! Can't wait for your next article!

    Thought I should add that my breathing problems (bronchial hyperresponsiveness which, according to my lung specialist, is a precursor to asthma)started well over a year ago when I sat under very cold airconditioning whilst at a conference at a well-known Coloradan hotel. I asked three times for the airconditioning to be adjusted so the room would become warmer, but seemingly little, if anything, was done, and I continued to freeze under the very cold draught of air coming from the ceiling vents. I have been suffering since then. Unsurprisingly perhaps, my principal triggers are cold air (Coloradan winters!!!)and chemical 'irritants' (cleaning fluids, perfumes even...). I use Clenil (beclometasone) daily and Ventolin as needed.
    So to anyone reading my comments: please be very careful when in a cold airconditioned environment - it may end up doing you far more harm than good...
