Antioxidants May Prevent Childhood Asthma
by Jeremy Maddock
looked at data collected from a sample of 6153 four to sixteen year old children. It
was discovered that dietary supplementation of beta-carotene, vitamin C, and
Selenium caused a 10% to 20% overall reduction in asthma prevalence.

A likely reason for this is the high levels of serum that are contained in these highly
effective antioxidant substances.

The most surprising part of the study, however, was that the effect was considerably
much more pronounced in cases where the children were exposed to environmental
second hand tobacco smoke. In these cases, supplementation was associated with
an enormous 50% reduction in asthma prevalence.

These results seem to indicate that supplementing your child's diet with Selenium, as
well as with vitamin C and beta-carotene is an excellent way to protect them against
the damaging effects that second hand smoke can have on their growing lungs.
