Abstract

The prevalence of asthma has increased considerably in societies with a Western life style, perhaps as a result of reduced infections increasing the likelihood of response to allergens. High-level intake of nutrients that sustain immune reactions underlying asthma may also be associated with this trend, and increasing obesity is now a contributing factor as well. Intake of antioxidant nutrients may minimize the severity of established asthma, and intake of long-chain omega-3 PUFAs found in fish oil also have the potential to inhibit the allergic inflammation.
