Mediterranean Diet Linked to Lower Childhood Asthma

Researchers note lower risk of asthma symptoms in Greek 10- to 12-year-olds following a traditional Mediterranean diet, according to a recent Journal of the American Dietetic Association.

I reported in 2008 on a Portuguese study that found much improved control of adult asthma in those eating a Mediterranean diet.  Why, I even seem to recall a study that found a lower incidence of asthma in children of mothers who ate Mediterranean-style.

If you’re an overweight adult with asthma, why not look into the Sonoma Diet by Connie Guttersen, or my Advanced Mediterranean Diet?  People with diabetes or prediabetes may do better with the Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet.
