I think we all pretty much knew this (or at least had an inkling) but now medical research proves eating healthier food means less asthma symptoms, especially with kids.
Australian health experts aren’t surprised about results of a study showing children who eat three fast food burgers a week have increased rates of asthma and wheeze.
In contrast, a diet rich in fish, fruit and vegetables has been shown to have the reverse effect.
Professor Philip Thompson, the president of the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand, says the research adds to a growing pool of evidence which links food choice to disease.
He says there’s widely published information on the link between obesity and asthma and the health benefits of antioxidants in diet, as well as compelling evidence on the harm of poor diets on conditions such as heart disease and diabetes
