Is Acetaminophen causing people to have asthma according to the Science Times?
A recent NY Times article explores some new facts revealed in the Science Times. Read about it here
Is acetaminophen behind a sharp rise in asthma around the world over the past three decades?
Some researchers suspect that it might be, noting that asthma diagnoses began to take off just as doctors began using acetaminophen more often to treat children with fevers. Acetaminophen may also provoke inflammation in the airways, as Christie Aschwanden reports in this week’s Science Times: Read the entire article here.
One other thing about chronic breathing problems, is that a reduced ability to breathe is one of the risk factors for stroke. According to a recent study I just read, manipulation can improve the ability to breathe. Many asthma sufferers experience fewer asthma attacks and the ability to take deeper breaths after chiropractic manipulation. In other words, improved rib mechanics after manipulation can help those suffering from asthma while reducing their risk of stroke. Another thing to note is those who have been under the care of a chiropractor for asthma also require fewer medications to prevent asthma attacks. Many studies have shown this to be the case.
To sum it up, if you suffer from asthma, avoid acetomenaphen (aspiring works well too), and consider chiropractic care as part of your management of the condition.
