|Pregnant women who eat lots of nuts may increase the chances of their baby being born with asthma, according to a report in the Guardian.
The news comes after a dietary study of 4,000 mothers-to-be and the resultant health of their children up until they are eight.
Asthma or problems like wheezing were far more common in the children of women who ate nutty foods every day of their pregnancy.
The problems may occur because of the children's exposure to the allergy-causing substances in nuts while in the womb.
