Bronchiolitis Inconsistency[edit]

On the chart for bronciolitis, this page lists the main causes as tobacco smoking and air pollutants, but at [[1]], in the first line, it states that the condition is usually caused by viruses. I am no MD, but in my limited knowledge about the subject from my time as a former Paramedic, it seems like I remember the condition being mostly likely caused by viral infection. It is fairly rare compared to Bronchitis, and with the amount of people worldwide who smoke, one would assume there would be far more widespread cases of Bronchiolitis otherwise. Of course I may be wrong... but either way, the inconsistency is still present and a problem. 65.184.233.253 (talk) 10:55, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
