Eating More Fish Might Mitigate Pollution's Effects On Asthma : Shots - Health News

"We know that asthma is a disease that's driven by inflammation," explains Dr. Emily Brigham , a pulmonologist at Johns Hopkins University and co-author of the study. As our bodies digest fish, the omega-3 fatty acids generate byproduct molecules known as "pro-resolving mediators" that make their way into our lungs. "They help to resolve inflammation," Brigham says.

Given this anti-inflammatory effect, Brigham and her colleagues had a hunch that diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids may help attenuate the effects of air pollution on kids' symptoms. To study this, they tracked the diets and indoor air pollution levels (from sources including smoke, dust and allergens) in the homes of 135 children, mostly African-American and all with asthma, in Baltimore, Md.

They measured two types of indoor air pollution, made up of different sizes of particulate matter : PM2.5 (fine inhalable particles that are 2.5 micrometers or smaller), and the somewhat larger PM10. These particulates are all too small for us to see, but they can make their way into our airways, and the smaller size — PM2.5 — can lodge deeply inside our lungs.

Can mild asthma in an adult go away completely?

When I was 18, I had mild asthma symptoms (shortness of breath and wheezing ) for a period of about 2-3 weeks, during which I used an inhaler. Same thing happened when I was 20. I am now 24, and I havent had any symptoms since. How likely is it going


i have asthma also...i don't think it really ever goes away i think you can get it under control and once you do if you handle it will it may never bother you again but i'm sure there are things that can trigger it again...just be careful and talk to

well, you may never get the symptoms like that again, but it may come again tomorrow. the thing is, when you dont have asthma for along time, that means that your asthma it "sleeping", but can come back again.
