Early vitamin use link to asthma

Children who take multivitamins may be at a greater risk of developing asthma and food allergies, research suggests.

Researchers from the Children's National Medical Center in Washington say the reason for the apparent link is unclear.

They believe vitamins may cause cell changes that increase the odds of an allergic reaction, but say as yet there is no proof this is the case.

The research, based on more than 8,000 children, is published in Pediatrics.
