ABSTRACT
The article throws light on the relationship between asthma and obesity. Health care providers have explained this association as evidence that children with asthma are less likely to engage in physical activity and therefore, more prone to gain weight. The findings have important health implications in the battle to control the epidemics of both asthma and obesity in children. Further, longitudinal epidemiologic studies are necessary to confirm to identify all causes of childhood asthma epidemic.
