In this study a correlation was made between asthma and acetaminophen use. There is for a sure a link but the question remains; does acetaminophen cause asthma or do asthmatics have a greater chance of using the drug.
What is asthma? One thing not mentioned in this Wiki is that it is a condition of inflammation. The body and specifically the lungs are on fire.
On fire from what? There are both environmental and genetic factors at work, but what it boils down to is a lack of glutathione in the lungs. Glutathione is the naturally occurring primary antioxidant in every cell of the body. It can be depleted in many ways, one of which is constant drug use.
Ok, now we know how important glutathione is, but how can we increase it?
- N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)
- Alpha lipoic acid (ALA)
- B12, Folate, B6
- Milk Thistle
- Daily multivitamin
Glutathione Diet List
- water cress
- brussel sprouts
- unpasteurized milk (should be hormone and antibiotic free)
- ricotta cheese
- cottage cheese
- milk (decreased in pasteurized milk)
- whey protein (bio active is the better form)
- wheat germ
- oat flakes
- pork (not for Jews and Muslims)
- sausage meat
- Un-denatured Whey Protein is the most plentiful source of glutathione boosting cystine.
- Exercise...regular start slowly and build up to thirty minutes a day.
