Asthma/EID

According to the CDC, 39.5 million people, including 10.5 million children, in the United States have been diagnosed with asthma.

Elite athletes are not exempt. A study in the UK tested a variety of their nation’s elite endurance athletes and found that nearly 70% of the UK's national swimming team and one-third of the national cyclist team had some form of asthma.
