Названа неожиданная причина астмы

A constant shortage of vitamins and minerals in people abusing fast food causes inflammation in the Airways.

New data obtained by the Chinese scientists from Sichuan University, indicate that a provocateur of developing asthma may be regular consumption of such popular fast food like hamburgers and hot dogs.

Scientific experts analyzed data from 16 studies that examined the probability of occurrence of asthma in the context of consumption of fast food – as in food served in restaurants and store-bought convenience foods. It turned out that the love for food that only requires reheating, seriously increases the risk of asthma.

“People who eat fast food about three times a week are more likely to suffer from severe asthma, in which attacks are observed more than four times a year,” the researchers found.

In their opinion, fast food is not enough nutrients needed by the body – for example, there are very few nutrients contained in fruits and vegetables. A constant shortage of vitamins and minerals in people abusing fast food causes inflammation in the Airways, leading to the development of the disease.
