According to a new study, performed by the French scientists, people who eat a lot of fruit and vegetables have up to 30% less risk to experience the severe symptoms of asthma.
For their research, a team of scientists studied approximately 35,000 people comparing their diets and the symptoms of their asthma. The analysis of the received data showed that men who eat a more healthy diet tend to have a 30% lower risk to experience the symptoms of asthma. At the same time, women’s risk was 20% lower.
Lead researcher of the study Dr. Roland Andrianasolo says: “Our results strongly encourage the promotion of healthy diets for preventing asthma symptoms and managing the disease.”
A human immune system consists of various cells, tissues, and proteins. In the system, they carry out the processes in our body that fight with pathogens — viruses, bacteria, and foreign bodies. When a pathogen comes into contact with the immune system, the latter releases antibodies to attack pathogens and kill them. The following fifteen foods will help you to boost your immune system:

A new study, conducted by the researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, US, suggests that starting your meal with a serving of yogurt may reduce inflammation, protect from the harmful byproducts of gut bacteria.
To examine their suggestion, the researchers recruited 120 premenopausal women, half of them were obese, for the first experiment. Half of the participants had to eat 12 ounces of low-fat yogurt each day for 9 weeks while others ate non-diary pudding. The results showed that some inflammatory markers, such as TNF-alpha, were significantly reduced in those participants who ate yogurt.
Ruisong Pei, a postdoctoral researcher, says: “Eating 8 ounces of low-fat yogurt before a meal is a feasible strategy to improve post-meal metabolism and thus may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and metabolic diseases.”
