Could fast food cause that runny nose? A study published on Monday suggests it may.
The gigantic study looks at 400,000 kids from 51 countries. It found that teens who ate the most fast food were 39 percent more likely to have severe asthma. Younger children who ate the most fast food were 27 percent more likely to have severe asthma, the researchers report in the journal Thorax.
The kids who ate the most fruit, on the other hand, lowered their risk. Children who ate three or more servings of fruit a week – far below the two to three servings a day that experts recommend eating – were 11 to 14 percent less likely to have severe symptoms.
