As a person who's been dealing with asthma her whole life, I must say this article is TERRIBLE!!!
Asthma Patients: Danger Lurks in Fatty Meals
My favourite quote of BS?
They recruited 40 people with asthma. Some received a high-fat, high-calorie meal of fast food hamburgers and hash browns containing about 1,000 calories, 52% of which was fat; others ate a low-fat, low-calorie meal of reduced fat yogurt, containing about 200 calories and 13% fat.'
And the study showed that the people who ate the 1,000 calories had lower response rates to the medicine?!? Um DUH--they were eating FIVE TIMES the amount of calories, and who knows how many more carbs. This is truly disgusting that it passes as medical advisc!! Why not feed them two hard boiled eggs and a veggie and see how they did instead? A burger and hashbrowns?!? SERIOUSLY?!?!
