A new study by Dutch researchers suggests that if children are fed fish in the first year of their life, it reduces their chances of contracting asthma in the future. The study was released Friday. Asthma affects over 40 million people around the world. "Asthma is a disorder that causes the airways of the lungs to swell and narrow, leading to wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing," the U.S. Public Health Med website states.
Although there is no complete cure for childhood respiratory allergies, like dust mite induced allergies and asthma, researchers say that they now have a long term control for the allergy that can bring it under control just three years of allergy shots.
