Exposure to domestic dysfunction raises asthma risk (April 7, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From Massachusetts - Exposure to domestic dysfunction raises risk of asthma, according to a report published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Researchers studied interviews with parents of over 90,000 children between the ages of 0-17 years, assessing the child's exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACE) such as drug problems or domestic violence. Results showed that those exposed to just one ACE were at 28% increased risk of asthma compared to those with no history of the events.
