I wonder if it's the best idea for babies to be in day care at 4 months of age, anyway. 2 1/2-3 maybe. Younger than that strikes me as something to be done only in the direst of circumstances.

I wonder if the increase in allergies, etc. might not also be attributable to this.


What I find interesting about this study is the following:

1. Only children from Tennessee were studied.

2. Abstract does not state distribution of study participants (urban vs rural).

3. Covers children from 0-5 yrs old that aged to 5-10 yrs old during the study.

4. No statement of familial history as an influence.

I agree that this is just a casual relationship and nothing more. I would be more interested if the study was more widespread, covered study participants up to 15 yrs old, and listed familial information.

All this being said, I am a Scorpio and have asthma although it is not active. It was not diagnosed until my late 20's to early 30's when it started to affect my life. I did not have issues previously and had a very active life. My daughter has it as well (January Baby), mostly sports-induced asthma.

I have found that managing the Humidity Level and Cleanliness of my house does the trick and got me off daily asthma meds.


Well I don't know TM if if the "Where" is much of a factor, considering that Obama was born in Hawaii and Kenya and Indonesia and in a cargo plane somewhere over the ocean, yet he doesn't seem to have a lick of asthma, even after quitting smoking every other day of the campaign. Guess we need another government study.
