Fish-Asthma Link May Come Down To Timing

A Dutch study recently released suggests that giving fish to your child between the ages of 6 months to 12 months helps reduce the risk of developing asthma-like symptoms later on than babies introduced to fish before six months of age or after their first birthdays.

“Introduction of fish between 6 and 12 months but not fish consumption afterward is associated with a lower prevalence of wheezing,” lead author Jessica Kiefte-de Jong and her colleagues wrote in the journal Pediatrics.

It is not uncommon for there to be specific times when exposures to some allergenic substances seems to be critical in relation to developing or not developing symptoms.
