No basis in Paracetamol and Asthma Link

The National Health Service has issued the information that studies do not show that Parcetamol causes Asthma. The declaration came after a research report said that the use of Paracetamol in children before the age of 15 months increased the risk in these children of being diagnosed with allergies by the time they reach the age six. The study also found that a greater parcetamol use in the previous year often resulted in increased chances of wheezing or Asthma symptoms.
 
According to the NHS, the study has limitations and needs further verification through clinical trials. The NHS has categorically stated that the study does not show that Paracetamol causes Asthma, so it is still a pretty safe medication.
