Asthma, a condition characterised by hyper‐reactivity and chronic inflammation of the bronchial system, is the most common chronic disease in childhood, with increasing prevalence in recent decades. Childhood asthma prevalence in the United States has doubled to 9% since the 1980s (Moorman et al., 2007). Asthma persists to adulthood in at least 25% of children (Sears et al., 2003). Approximately 30 million people in the European region are affected by asthma (Masoli et al., 2004).
