Not getting enough of your daily vitamins could cause asthma

RESEARCHERS FROM THE U-K'S NOTTINGHAM UNIVERSITY SAY A LOW INTAKE OF
VITAMINS A AND C RAISES YOUR RISK OF DEVELOPING THE DISEASE.
THEY LOOKED AT FORTY STUDIES FROM OVER THE PAST THIRTY YEARS TO COME TO
THEIR CONCLUSION.
THE RESEARCHERS FOUND PEOPLE WHO TOOK IN LOW DOSES OF "C" HAD A TWELVE
PERCENT INCREASED CHANCE OF ASTHMA.
VITAMIN A HAD A LESS CLEAR-CUT EFFECT ON THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.
IT'S NOT KNOWN WHAT THE CORRELATION IS BETWEEN VITAMINS AND ASTHMA.
THE FINDINGS APPEAR IN THE LATEST ISSUE OF "THE THORAX JOURNAL."
