A recent study has revealed that children who first ate fish between the ages of 6 months and 1 year had a reduced risk of developing asthma-like symptoms compared to those who consumed fish before age 6 months or after their first birthdays.
It's all in the timing say researchers as experts believe that it is during this time that the immune system is getting educated. "A specific window of opportunity between the age of 6 and 12 months might exist in which fish may protect against asthma," said researchers.
