REDUCING ASTHMA BY DIET

from American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine

Indoor air pollution is a known trigger for asthma symptoms and levels of indoor air pollution in large cities, specifically Baltimore, are known to exceed acceptable standards for even outdoor air quality. The latest research by the same team at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine report that inner city children with symptoms of asthma may be affected by what they eat. Specifically, consuming more foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids results in fewer asthma symptoms. Those foods include fish, nuts and seeds. Omega-6 fatty acids may have just the opposite effect, worsening asthma. Omega-6 is primarily found in vegetable oils used in frying food. Details are published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
