Did you know a significant amount of doctor visits for asthma could be prevented by simply addressing home environmental controls?
One example is making sure your air ducts are clean and that filters are changed regularly.
Smoking is a huge factor, too.
Please stop smoking, for your own health and because of Thirdhand Smoke. Thirdhand Smoke is the residual nicotine and other toxic chemicals from tobacco smoke that is left on surfaces such as clothing, floors, furniture, car upholstery, etc. This is likely the case with the vapor exhaled while vaping, too.
Please take a moment to watch Dr. Hartman’s video on Asthma Environmental Control Measures!
