Skip Burgers, Breathe Easier

According to an article in December 2010 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, eating three or more of the hamburgers each week may make kids more likely to develop asthma.  Researchers from Germany, Spain and Britain studied 50,000 children ages 8 to 12 across the globe and found that adhering to Mediterranean diet (one that emphasizes healthy fats, fruits, and vegetables) may give kids some protection against asthma.  Researchers say it's not the beef in burgers that's at fault; rather, a Western diet rich in Big Macs is likely to lack the components of a healthy meal plan that help stave off breathing issues.  to help protect your child, know that vitamin C-rich foods have been linked to better lung function and lower asthma rates; omega-3 fats found in fish may help prevent allergies and asthma, too.
