A question I hear almost everyday, the answer still surprises me to this day.

Asthma (az-muh, as-) is a chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Its primary cause is inflamed airways in the lungs.

In the Philippines, the National Nutrition Survey conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute in 2003 estimates that about 7 out of 100 Filipinos may either have prediabetes or diabetes.
