But before we get started...

Assignment #1
Test your knowledge...again. Take "The Great Trigger Quiz" to see how much you know about asthma triggers.

Hopefully you did pretty well on the quiz we tried to stick to the basics, promise. Regardless of your score, however, we can all stand to learn a bit more about asthma triggers you'll find inside. After all, the more you know, the more precautions you can take to prevent the triggers from provoking or aggravating your asthma.

What is this trigger thing, where can I get one?

No, firearms will not exacerbate your asthma. Rather, an asthma "trigger" simply refers to a factor that triggers your symptoms. A trigger can be an actual substance that causes you to have an allergic reaction (an allergen), or it can be a physical state of your body, like that involved in exercising or dealing with emotional stress. Triggers can exist seasonally or year round, both indoors and out. Airborne irritants, like smog and tobacco smoke, although not allergens, can aggravate asthma.
