A new study out from the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that woman who take fish oil during their pregnancy lowered the risk of asthma for their baby. The study conducted in Denmark found that woman who took fish oil during pregnancy reduced the risk of asthma by 31%.

Although researchers are still not ready to recommend woman take fish oil during pregnancy, there was no adverse effects in the mothers or their babies. They also want to test whether or not it would be beneficial for woman to consume fish rather than a pill.

In conclusion, more research is needed to determine the viability of this study. However, with more that 330 million children with Asthma around the world, the race is on to find ways to prevent this disease.
