For the Public Health by Anthony Parrillo, Ph.D., CHES

Asthma is a chronic lung condition, which means it lasts a long time – usually three months or more. Once someone has asthma, it won't just disappear.

I love reading college textbooks. Well, that is an exaggeration, as math has few stories about killin' and drinkin' and pillagin', which are very good subjects for an active mind like mine.
