Researchers at the University of South Florida in Tampa have presented a new recommendation for pregnant women seeking to prevent childhood asthma in their children.
The researchers published a review of two studies that conclude that mothers who consume high-dose omega-3 fatty acids daily during the third trimester are less likely to develop asthma.
However, it has been found that the benefits are the same if a mom-to-be consumes 2 to 3 servings of low mercury fish each week during pregnancy. This prevents childhood asthma as much as fish oil supplements do.
