<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">NEW YORK - A new study suggests that women who eat apples while pregnant may protect their child from developing asthma and related symptoms.<br><br>
Among a wide variety of foods eaten and recorded by the pregnant women, only apple consumption showed a consistent protective association with the occurrence of childhood wheeze and asthma, according to the team's report published in the medical journal Thorax. This is a novel finding, Willers and colleagues note.<br><br>
The researchers found that children of moms who munched on more than 4 apples per week were 37 per cent less likely to have a history of wheezing and 53 per cent less likely to have doctor-confirmed asthma, compared to moms who ate one or no apples per week while pregnant.</td>
