In detail, the research team explained the association between asthma and obesity through the evidence presented in the study, where these fats play a role in provoking asthma symptoms. The link between asthma and obesity was well known, but scientific explanations were not enough to understand their relationship.
A new study has shown that fat can accumulate in the airways in the lungs and that the composition of these airways changes as a result, and this change leads to breathing problems in those who are overweight or obese.
The study, conducted at Charles Gardner Hospital in Australia, examines 52 lungs donated after their owners died.
The team noted that the more human weight, the more fat accumulated in the lungs, as well as increased inflammation in the tissues of the lung cells and the respiratory tract, thereby increasing the thickness of these canals and preventing the entry and exit of air. worsen asthma symptoms.
