This is not the first time researchers at Cardiff University have made the link between fungi and asthma. Previous research found that removing fungi from people's homes could help improve life for asthma sufferers.
Researchers at Cardiff University say hundreds of tiny fungal particles found in the lungs of people suffering from asthma could help in developing new treatments.
It was previously thought that the lungs were sterile, but a new study undertaken by university researchers has found the presence of large numbers of fungi in healthy lungs.The researchers hope the discovery could lead to new lines of research and better treatments for sufferers in the future.
