The researchers gave the food to the number of rats. As a result, fiber-rich foods can minimize inflammation or pneumonia.
The addition of fiber to change the nutrients absorbed from the intestines, then change the immune system.
The researchers say the more often people eat processed food products, may be the cause of the increase in cases of asthma.
Airways of asthmatics are more sensitive, more prone to irritation and inflammation. When this happens, the smaller airways and makes them difficult to breathe.
The researchers say further studies are still needed in order to study can be applied to humans.
Experts involved in the study, Benjamin Marsland, say, its application to humans clearly wide open.
" It is still too early, but if it can later be applied to humans, the impact can be quite extensive, " he said.
