Being Overweight worsens asthma

Thicker children are more likely to suffer from asthma than children of normal weight. The claim is that it is the result of recent research involving some 800 children aged between eight and 11 years.

During the research showed that about 200 children have breathing problems, and the rest of the children did not have any respiratory problems.

200 asthmatic children most of them had a problem with overweight, and quite a large proportion of them born prematurely.

The link between asthma and obesity in children may explain yet unrecognized disorder of breathing during sleep.
