      It isn’t actually known why some people get asthma and others don’t although it is thought that people with asthma or allergies in the family are more likely to get asthma. It could also be more likely for environmental reasons like being around cigarette smoke. Triggers for someone who has asthma to have an asthma attack however include exercise, pollen, pet hair, stress etc!
