Asthma linked to lack of vitamin E during pregnancy

A lack of vitamin E during pregnancy may substantially increase the risk of childhood asthma. Scientists at Aberdeen University believe vitamin E and D could account for up to a third of new cases of asthma in recent decades. The increase in asthma, especially in children, has never been fully explained. However, there is growing evidence that maternal diet is implicated in the rise of asthma.  The research found a clear link between asthma and wheezing in children aged three and low intake of vitamin E by the mother during pregnancy.
