'Persistent asthma' linked to build-up of plaque in arteries – study finds stroke risk


Share post:

Science has consistently shown that chronic, low-grade inflammation can turn into a silent killer that contributes to cardiovascular disease.

It does so by contributing to the build-up of plaque, known as atherosclerosis.

What’s more, inflammation is associated with a higher risk of plaque rupturing and triggering cardiac events.

In light of these findings, people with chronic asthmatic attacks are advised to eat healthy food, be physically active, avoid cigarette smoking, and lose weight if needed.
