    Honestly it makes a lot of sense. It was an extremely hot and dry day yesterday and there was no clean air anywhere cus of the abundance of meduras. I myself have breathing and allergy problems and I finished my day at 4pm under the air conditioner cus the air was just so heavy. So sad.

  2. Most probably not asthma – one doesnt die in their sleep from it. rather one is awakened with difficulty in breathing. more likely scenario is an aneurysm which fits the headache scenario and quite often can kill while a person is sleeping. So dont worry the meduras would only exacerbate ones asthma and asthmaics with a little common sense would stay indoors with the windows closed.

  3. OK # 3, let’s have it your way.

    First of all , there were no meduras,

    V’afilu im timtzuh loimer there were meduras, all the air was clean,

    V’afilu im timtzuh loimer the air wasn’t clean, Me’Haiche Tasieh that affects allergy and asthma sufferers.
