Vegetarian product – soy – does not cure asthma.
Some time ago, there was evidence in the scientific literature that a
soy diet improves the course of asthma and the condition of asthmatics.
Evidence has been cited that supposedly consumption of soy reduces the severity
of this disease. A new study sponsored by the American Lung and Heart
Association proves that soy does not cure asthma. Its addition to the diet does
not improve lung function in patients with bronchial asthma.
An article published May 26 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) highlights the importance of focusing on overall health rather than looking for individual approaches, such as soy for asthma patients, according to their authors’ concepts.
Comment: Diet is important because most inflammatory mediators are produced in the gastrointestinal tract. But at the same time, you should not rely on individual foods, because they in no way affect the chronic course of the inflammatory process in the bronchial tree. So just as soy does not cure asthma, so do other vegetables and fruits. Medicines cannot be replaced!
