2014 is coming to an end and to resume the year, let’s look at the multiple cases of diseases, cures and remedies. Although not much at the forefront of American news many of these diseases, such as Ebola are still having devastating effects.
According to the centers for disease control:

Doctors know that most people with asthma can control their symptoms and prevent occurrences by avoiding asthma triggers.
- Pesticides, household chemicals, cosmetics and carpeting to cite a few, in and around the house, or apply to the skin, are part of triggers.

All studies point out that the cited above culprits are increasing allergies and asthma symptoms. With that in mind, we, have we change our habits. Otherwise you’ll find yourself living a life of corticosteroids and other medications and put your children in the same conventional rules as preventive measures?

In conclusion, 2014 has been an improvement in few decision making. The most recent was a dependable and affordable health care insurance. It is a right for every human being.
