ABSTRACT
The article deals with the role of diet in the prevention of allergies and asthma. Nutrition plays a major role in asthma, and there is increasing evidence that foods can affect seasonal allergies. Repeated studies have shown that people who eat more fruits and vegetables have reduced risk of asthma, presumably because these foods improve immune system functions. Harvard's long-term Nurses' Health Study also found that thin people have only one-third the risk of asthma compared to overweight participants. It is worth noting that a vegetarian diet does improve nutrition and help alleviate asthma, but it is also possible to be allergic to some vegetarian foods, such as peanuts, soy or wheat.
