Children who love junk food and eat at least
three burgers in a week are inviting asthma, says a latest research.
The study which was conducted on 50,000 children across 20 countries revealed
that the risk of asthma, because of improper diet, is highest of all in
better-off countries, express.co.uk
The findings showed that youngsters who enjoy a healthy diet rich in fruit, fish
and vegetables have the lowest risk to get affected by the disease.
When compared between rich and poor countries, it was found that a diet high in
fish protected children against wheeze in well-off countries, while a diet rich
in cooked vegetables guarded youngsters in poor countries.
Elaine Vickers, of Asthma UK has advised children to "eat a healthy, balanced
diet and get plenty of exercise".
