Eating Processed Meat May Worsen Asthma Symptoms
The study of nearly 1,000 French people, published in the journal Thorax, suggests that eating processed meats such as sausages, salami and ham that contain a preservative called nitrite can worsen asthma symptoms. However, the researchers say that more investigations are needed.
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.
The survey concentrated on asthma symptoms such as breathlessness, wheeze, chest tightness, and intake of processed meats.
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.
