Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world. It is associated with variable airflow obstruction, airways hyper-responsiveness and chronic airway inflammation. Increasingly, research has moved toward studying compounds in individual foods to gain a greater understanding of their specific role(s) and the mechanisms involved in the prevention and reduction of asthma disease in humans. The prevalence of disease is increasing in many countries over the recent decades and it highlights the need for a greater understanding change in traditional to a westernized lifestyle. Dietary constituents can play both beneficial as well as detrimental role in asthma. The possible association of food with asthma can be described as follows, some food nutrients such as egg, milk, soy its acts as a food allergen can cause asthma while some other such a of breastfeeding play important role in the prevention of asthma. It has been also suggested that low intake of anti- oxidative dietary constituents might be a risk factor for asthma. The role of cautions such as Food Allergy, Anti-oxidant, fruits, vegetables has been associated with a risk factor in the development of asthma and intake of fatty acids especially the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play important role in case of asthma. On the basis of previous literature, it is suppose in this review what is currently treandsnutrion in bronchial asthma patients.
