Asthma: Eating fruits and vegetables frequently can help to get better
About 3.5 million French are asthmatics. In addition to medical treatment, the consumption of fruits and vegetables can be a plus. Explanations:
Consumption of fruit and vegetables is now less important that there is a fifty year. At the same time, the number of people with asthma increases. So would there be a link?
FIBERS, EFFECTIVE PROTECTION AGAINST ASTHMA
The Swiss National Science Foundation conducted a study with the Vaud University Hospital in mice, whose immune system is similar to ours. Some mice were given a low-fiber diet, others a diet rich in plant fibers.
It turned out that the rodents had consumed less fiber had more infections of the lungs in the presence of mites than those that had eaten much. Thus, a good intestinal flora would be effective against asthma.
WHICH PLANTS TO CHOOSE?
To fill fiber at every meal, opt for dried figs, dried apricot, currant, Jerusalem artichoke, the passion fruit, dates, currants, raspberries, beans, parsley, small peas, guava.
