Asthma: Two Million People Unaware of Risks

According to the charity Asthma UK around 2 million people in the UK are underestimating the fatal risks posed by asthma.

Their survey of asthma sufferers in the UK indicated that around 50% did not think they were ‘at risk’ – when, according to the charity the majority of them were, in fact, at risk.

If the survey results applied to all asthma patients in the UK then two million people were underestimating their risk, the charity said as just under 10% of people suffer from it (1 in 12 adults) and around 1,000 a year die from the disease.

Chief Executive of the charity, Neil Churchill, explained:

"Millions of people with asthma are unaware that the condition can be fatal and that they are regularly taking huge risks with their lives. We can all help stop asthma deaths, and we need to start by changing the attitude that it's 'just' asthma."
