Asthma inhalers may lead to shorter height

Adults who used inhaled steroids as children to control their asthma may be shorter than they otherwise would have been, but only by a little.

They cited only few differences involving pesticides and antibiotics. Eating organic can lower those exposures.

There was a notable difference with antibiotic resistant germs compared to conventional foods.

But, as far as nutrition, researchers say organic food did not prove to be any better.

There is more on the findings in the Journal of Annals of Internal Medicine.
