Are there any specific foods that will trigger my asthma?

  1. As this article from our editorial team on asthma and diet notes, food allergies are rarely asthma triggers and there are no general guidelines for avoiding certain foods: https://asthma.net/coping/diet/.

    1. Researchers are finally studying the effect diet(https://asthma.net/coping/diet/) has on asthma. Many with asthma say after eating junk food or drinking alcohol (https://asthma.net/living/alcohol/) they experience symptoms.
