Eating Processed Meat May Worsen Asthma Symptoms

In the study, people from France took part in a survey about food and health within the period from 2003 to 2013. Nearly half of them were asthma patients.

People who reported consuming more than 4 portions of processed meat (for example, 8 sliced of ham or 4 sausages) had the biggest worsening of their asthma by the end of the study.
