What increases a child's chances of developing asthma?

Swimming Pools And Asthma

According to the results of a recent study, chlorine used in swimming pools clean may increase a child's risk of developing asthma. Researchers carried out tests on 226 healthy children who swam regularly, in order to determine the levels of lung proteins in their blood. An increase in these proteins indicates that the cells lining the lungs have been damaged, which can lead to asthma. Reducing the amount of chlorine in drinking water, then, is a further step to preventing the illness from developing in kids.
