Research published in the scientific journal Nature Medicine reveals, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help treat asthma.
The researchers gave the food to a number of rats. As a result, fiber-rich foods can minimize inflammation or pneumonia.
The addition of fiber to change the essence of food that is absorbed from the intestine, and then modify the immune system.
The researchers said that the more often people eat processed food products, may be the cause of the increase in cases of asthma.
Asthmatic airways more sensitive, more prone to irritation and inflammation. When this happens, the smaller airways and makes them difficult to breathe.
The researchers say further studies are still needed so that this research can be applied to humans.
Experts involved in the study, Benjamin Marsland, said its application to man obviously wide open.
“It is still too early, but if it will be applied to humans, the impact can be quite extensive,” he said.
