Diet Related to Asthma

Asthma is a condition which impacts at least 300 million people world wide.
It is the most common chronic disease worldwide.
There may be another 100 million individuals affected by 2025.
This rapid increase is greatly due to changing lifestyle, dietary or environmental factors.
Two new research studies intimate that nutrition could play a part in the development of asthma, however, the researchers have cautioned that more research is necessary to confirm this link.
In the first study, University of Aberdeen researchers reviewed three dietary factors which were considered to play a role in the rapid increase of asthma: an altering antioxidant intake, an increasing ratio of certain polyunsaturated fatty acid consumption, and fluctuating vitamin D status.
The second study emphasised that a healthy diet during pregnancy enables the child to not develop asthma later in life.
