In The News: Asthma, Eczema, Hay Fever may be linked to fast foods

The article, Asthma, Eczema, Hay Fever may be linked to fast foods stated that "Teenagers and young children who eat fast food could be increasing their risk of developing asthma, eczema and hay fever, according to a study published Monday in the British Medical Journal's respiratory journal Thorax." "We found clear associations between certain foods and severe asthma, hay fever (or allergic rhinoconjunctivitis) and eczema in the largest study of allergies in children (aged 6-7 years) and adolescents (13-14 years) to date," said study author Hywel Williams of the Centre for Evidence Based Dermatology, Queen's Medical Centre, University Hospital, Nottingham, UK.  According to Williams, the associations between allergic diseases and fast food were "only really convincing for severe disease."

Lina<3, this article is the exact reason that Mommy decided to eat healthier throughout the pregnancy with you and after you were born. The thought of the smallest possibility that can affect you in any way is scary. Mommy had cut junk food, and fast food (which I do not usual eat anyways so it was not hard to do). After you were born, your Daddy and I decided to give you as much organic foods as much as possible, while Mommy continue with the no junk food, and fast foods. However with the changes in food, you still have eczema, but the severity of flareups have lessen significantly. As for you eating junk food, and fast foods, that will never happen (I know, never say never).
