Environmental exposures more determinant of respiratory health than inherited genetics
(Ontario Institute for Cancer Research) Researchers have found strong evidence that environmental exposures, including air pollution, affect gene expressions associated with respiratory diseases much more than genetic ancestry. The study, published today in Nature Communications, analyzed more than 1.6 million data points from biological specimens, health questionnaires and environmental datasets, making this study one of the largest ever to examine the relationship between gene expression and environmental stimuli.

NIH: Asthma flare-ups not prevented by temporary increases to inhaled steroid dose
Temporarily increasing the amount of inhaled steroids that young children take when their asthma symptoms worsen does not prevent severe flare-ups, according to a new study from the National Institutes of Health. The findings buck traditional medical practice involving kids with mild-to-moderate asthma. Asthma flare-ups are common among children with asthma and most doctors recommend boosting a patient’s dose of inhaled steroids from low to high at the first sign of coughing and wheezing.

By Susan Scutti, CNN (CNN) — Flu has been shown the door in the United States.

Want to Protect Yourself From Getting the Flu? Get Some Sunshine
By now, you probably know the tried-and-true flu prevention strategies: get vaccinated, wash your hands often and try to steer clear of folks who are sick. But new research says there may be another way to stay healthy, and it begins before flu season is even in full swing. Spending more time in the sun in August and September, and thus absorbing more immune-system-boosting vitamin D, may help prevent the flu as fall progresses, according to a new working paper distributed by the National Bureau of Economic Research. A state that sees an unusually high number of sunny days in a given month, the paper says, can also expect ...

Why Flu Outbreaks Have Been the Worst in Nearly a Decade
The only thing worse than getting the flu is catching it after you’ve gotten a flu shot. It’s been a terrible year for outbreaks — the worst in almost a decade. Contributing to that is the high failure rate of this year’s vaccine. The current shot is just 25 percent effective against the H3N2 virus, this season’s most-often-identified strain by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The experts say, with enough time and money, they can do a lot better. “There has to be a wholesale change to how we make the flu vaccine,” said Amesh Adalja, senior scholar at Johns Hopkins Ce...
