"We've reduced two common asthma triggers — second-hand smoke and smoking in general — [but] asthma is increasing", says bewildered idiot

These kind of statements are sadly all too prevalent today when it comes to any kind of 'nth hand' smoke. Surely these idiots can see that there's more to asthma than tobacco smoke which I agree can irritate some peoples breathing causing them to cough if there is a high concentration of the stuff. The same goes for other 'illnesses' that the smoker is accussed of either direct by causation or link.

It's not the first asthma sufferer I've came across that smokes, my nephew being one of them.

People with asthma can control symptoms and prevent attacks by avoiding triggers such as pollution and using prescribed medicine, like inhaled corticosteroids, as directed, the agency said.

And just who is it who produces these wonderful "corticosteroids?" Oh yes - that'll be Big Pharma. Again.

And who is it who "instructs" people to use them? Oh yes, that'll be the medical profession. Again.

Any link between the two, of course, is purely coincidental. Again.
