regarding activity and asthma

I am responding to the article claiming that strenuous activity is actually bad for asthma. What about the variety of documented studies that evaluated asthmatics undergoing swimming programs compared to controls and found that quality of life was greatly improved. What about the asthma swim program in NSW australia that has been in existance since 1962 and have reported diminised exacerbations and hospitalizations. Did you ever wonder that possibly athletes who wheezed from activity may have had asthma and that the activity did not cause it.

Give me a break
