Study Suggests that Eating Burger & Fries Can Worsen Asthma
Patients with asthma who ate a high-fat meal had increased inflammation in their airways soon afterward, and did not respond as well to treatment as those who ate a low-fat meal, the researchers found. (Live Science)
The problem with this study is that the results were most likely inferred based on incorrect observation. It was not the high fat content that was making the test subjects gasp for air, but rather that they had to pant and gasp since they were stuffing their faces much too quickly with the tasty burgers and fries. We’ve all seen how people eat their burger and fries, and everyone is gasping for air as they attack the food.
