Asthma explodes, during the cold weather, stress, virus, smoke, stress and of course food, here we present to you 4 foods that will trigger the asthma level –

  2. Salty Foods – Salt is a flavor enhancer. Too much intake of salt might worsen the asthma symptoms. Salt has high sodium content in it, which is mandatory for an asthmatic patient. So, sodium has to be consumed in the form of foods like – chili, meats, cheese, pretzels, potato chips, tortilla chips, and gravy mixes.
