Solder smoke has definitely been linked to occupational asthma.  Do
not breathe it if you can help it.  Install a little fan on your
bench to keep it out of your face, get one of those air cleaners for
your bench.  Whatever you do, don't end up like me, puffing away on
inhalers for the rest of your days.
