Asthma: BPA and Folate could be the reason!

Asthma in America - a serious diseaseA new study shows that mice who are pregnant and have been exposed to BPA -a common controversial chemical which hides in plastic bottles and aluminium lining of food and beverage cans- are more likely to let their babies develop Asthma in their future life!

A second study suggests that the intake of Folate during pregnancy might lead to Asthma from the age of 3 in case you took too much. As Folate is usually important during pregnancy because it can prevent neural tube defects it seems that it's the same with every vitamin supplement - Taking more doesn't necessarily mean it's better for the health!
