Doctors Health Press Comments on Study Showing Prenatal Consumption of Oily Fish Reduces Risk of Asthma in Offspring

Doctors Health Press reacts to a study indicating that consuming oily fish during pregnancy may reduce the risk of asthma in children.

Doctors Health Press (, a division of Lombardi Publishing Corporation and the publisher of various natural health newsletters, books, and reports, including the popular Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is weighing in on a study showing that eating oily fish during pregnancy may lower the risk of asthma in children.

In a study conducted by the University of Southampton, pregnant women ate salmon twice a week, beginning from week 19 of their pregnancy. Children were then tested for asthma at six months of age, then again at two and three years old. The results of the study showed that at the age of two and three, children whose mothers consumed salmon during pregnancy were less likely to develop asthma when compared to children whose mothers who did not consume salmon during pregnancy.

“Lately there has been some discrepancy about whether or not fish is safe for women to consume during pregnancy,” says Adrian Newman, publisher of Doctors Health Press. “Doctors Health Press has always advocated for the mild consumption of fish during pregnancy and this study demonstrates how oily fish can really benefit more children.”

The findings of the study further show how the presence or absence of certain fatty acids in one’s diet can be linked to a wide range of common illnesses, including allergies, such as asthma, and inflammatory conditions, such as Crohn’s disease. The results were presented at the recent Experimental Biology Congress in San Diego; however, they have not been published as of yet.

“Understanding the connection between nutrition and one’s immune system is extremely important,” says Newman. “It’s the first step in finding ways to combat diseases through the use of natural and alternative solutions.”

Doctors Health Press believes in the healing properties of various alternative remedies, including Chinese medicine. Their e-Bulletin is a daily e-newsletter that provides natural health news with a focus on natural healing through foods, herbs, and other breakthrough alternative health treatments.
