 Vitamin E-Rich Soup Offers Protection Against Asthma?

Researchers are currently investigating whether soup may provide an effective protection against asthma in children.

Researchers led by Professor Graham Devereux of Aberdeen University will be conducting a pilot study next month involving around 25 women who are 12 weeks into their pregnancies.

Researchers hope that making the women to drink soup that is rich in vitamin E, could give birth to babies who are not at risk of developing asthma as studies have found that babies who are born with low levels of vitamin E are at a greater risk of developing asthma by the time they turn five years old.

"The ultimate aim of this research is to reduce the prevalence of asthma by an effective, inexpensive, acceptable and safe public health dietary intervention. If successful, the proposed intervention could form the basis of public health dietary advice to pregnant women that could reduce the prevalence of childhood asthma by 15%-20% within five years", Professor Devereux said.
