  1. Dietary fat and asthma : is there a connection ?

    Article - En anglais

    The last two decades have seen an increase in the prevalence of asthma, eczema, and allergic rhinitis in developed countries.

    This increase has been paralleled by a fall in the consumption of saturated fat and an increase in the amount of polyunsaturated fat in the diet.

    This is due to a reduction in the consumption of animal fat and an increase in the use of margarine and vegetable oils containing oméga-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), such as linoleic acid.

    There is also evidence for a decrease in the consumption of oily fish which contain oméga-3 PUFAs, such as eicosapentaenoic acid.

    In a number of countries, there are social class and regional differences in the prevalence of allergic disease, which are associated with differences in the consumption of PUFAs.

    Linoleic acid is a precursor of arachidonic acid, which can be converted to prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), whereas eicosapentaenoic acid inhibits the formation of PGE2.

    PGE2 acts on T-lymphocytes to reduce the formation of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) without affecting the formation of interleukin-4 (IL-4).

    This may lead to the development of allergic sensitization, since IL-4 promotes the synthesis of immunoglobulin E (IgE), whereas IFN-gamma has the opposite effect.

    Changes in the diet may explain the increase in the prevalence of asthma, eczema and allergic rhinitis. (...)
