Life can be better with the use of chemicals. Every year, I embark on chemical warfare in my rose garden. The bugs try to eat all of the first blooms and I try to kill all the bugs with chemicals. Most of the time, I win the war and have a bounty of colors and perfumes gracing my garden. This year, I learned that these poisonous potions can have some major consequences.

Due to the benefits of inhaled steroids, they are taken by many patients, whose asthma is much better controlled as a result. Nevertheless, there are side effects, which can occur in some individuals who are taking very high doses due to more severe ast...
