Researchers report on how to reduce asthma risk in children

Researchers involved 3,000 children in a study from which they determined that eating vegetables at least once a week and fruit at least three times a week and breast feeding were all beneficial in reducing the risk of asthma. Other risk factors for asthma or wheezing included the use of antibiotics during the infant's first year, eating pasta, fast food or meat at least once a week, exposure to pollution, allergies, tobacco smoke and lack of exercise.
