never heard that!
i have asthma myself, but didn't get diagnosed until about 4 years ago - i always just thought it was b/c i was such a heavy smoker. i hardly ever use my inhaler. though i did have a flare up while pregnant. but before that i hadn't used one in about 2 years.

I have heard of this study before, I do believe it's the same study trotted out periodicaly. I haven't seen one other than this, although I'm sure there's more out there. Asthma is so common though, I think it could be linked to carrots even. OK, maybe going overboard there, but you get my point. I'm so wary of all these medical studies, they can all be manipulated so easily that it just makes me nervous.

My son does have asthma and he was born via c-section. But his head was stuck in the birth canal, so he was exposed to that bacteria, and it didn't seem to help him.

I have asthma and I was born vaginally. My youngest brother, the only one born via csection, has probably the best lungs of all of us....


I agree with what was said before: studies and statistics can be skewed to show what you want. There's no such thing as an "unbiased" study.
