Dietary factors associated with asthma and allergic rhinitis in teenagers
With the wealth of information relating diet to allergies and asthma, it is sad that so few of the patients with these conditions are informed of natural ways to reduce or eliminate symptoms. Everyone is told to avoid the common environmental contaminants such as pet dander, dust mites and cigarette smoke, but this items are merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to managing these conditions naturally. This study linked animal foods as contributors to the patients’ symptoms. Interestingly, fatty fish was also a contributor. It would be interesting to see the type of fish; cold water fish are generally less likely to have heavy metals and parasites when compared to their fresh and farm raised cousins.
