A new study says that the obese people may also be likely affected by Asthma. So obesity is going to bring a lot of disease for us. So the likeliness of asthma in obese adults should work in a healthy way for us and should inspire us to lose some extra pounds. So we have now one more healthy reason to lose the extra pounds (www.webmd.com).
This data was analyzed from many studies on weight and asthma. More than 333000 adults were included in these studies. Participants reported their height, weight, and whether or not they had asthma. The researchers calculated participants' BMI (body mass index), which relates height to weight. The participants with 25 to 30 are taken as overweight and the participants with body mass index from 30 or more are considered as obese.
Study found that, compared with participants with normal BMI; asthma was 38% more common in overweight adults and nearly twice as common among obese adults.
