Recent evidence reveals that more than 50 percent of current asthma cases in the U.S. can be attributed to allergies. Thirty percent of those are associated with cat allergies. Additional theories include: • greater exposure to more allergens, such as air pollution, dust and secondhand smoke. Research has shown that asthma is much more common in people with allergies. • not enough exposure (due to vaccines and medical treatment) to childhood illnesses to build up their immune system. Accordingly, asthma may be a disorder of the immune system where the body fails to make enough protective antibodies to fight off allergens and infections. • decreasing rates of breastfeeding. Fewer infants receive protective enzymes, proteins and essential nutrients from breast milk. This causes increased vulnerability to al
