    How does nutrition truly affect asthma? I have never been told that my nutrition has anything to do with my asthma..

    Hi Jimb and thanks for your inquiry. We appreciate your concern.
    If you look into this a bit deeper, you may realize that for some people with asthma, foods can have a significant effect. For others perhaps, not so much.

    For example, this article focuses on the effects of food and wine (with sulfites): https://asthma.net/triggers/food-wine-sulfites/

    This article underscores the issues that may have an effect on inflammation: https://asthma.net/living/low-inflammatory-ingredients/

    Finally, I thought you might find this article makes interesting reading – it’s all about nutritious foods and asthma: https://asthma.net/coping/diet/

    I do hope this material provides you with some insight on how foods and asthma can be related.
    All the best,
    Leon (site moderator)
