|New research has found that by delaying the diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough (DTP) vaccination by just two months, a child's risk of developing asthma in later life could be dramatically reduced.
Babies are supposed to have their first dose of the triple jab by the age of two months.
However a study of 11,531 children found that the likelihood of developing the respiratory disease asthma by the age of seven years was halved if this initial dose was delayed by two months.
