Asthma and the Ash Cloud?

Hi All,

For those who have Asthma the Volcanic Ash cloud, I cant give advice except what I would do in the circumstances.  As I have it, I’m not going to worry too much, and make sure I have medication to hand.  I think there is more than enough to worry about theses days, and anxiety can bring on asthma attacks.

Looking at the distance for the UK from the Volcano on the maps, it’s a few hundred miles and I think the cloud will have dispersed a lot in the wind I think.  Obviously if the advice form medical sources is different, that is priority.

I suppose there is the faint possibility that some dust will end up in the lower atmosphere, but hey, we take in petrol and diesel fumes at a high concentration every day.  Personally I think that is a greater risk.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

I heard a report from a vulcanologist today that this volcano is small compared to Mt St Helens eruption, so we can be assured that things wont get too out of hand!  If the earth puts ‘that one’ this way, we have to cope.  Even though we asthma sufferers have extra difficulties in this unusual situation, listening to latest information, I don’t think it is going to be too bad.

Stay cool

Cheers
