Whole Grains and Fish May Protect Against Asthma

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) Dec 11 – Children who eat large amounts of whole grain products and fish may have a reduced risk of asthma, according to findings published in the December issue of Thorax.

“The rise in the prevalence of asthma in western societies may be related to changed dietary habits,” Dr. H. A. Smit, of the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment, Bilthoven, the Netherlands, and colleagues write. “Epidemiological studies in children have shown inverse associations of asthma related outcomes with intake of fruits, vegetables, dairy and whole grain products, and fish.”
