Dear Reader,

You know the old saying, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." Well, when it comes to keeping asthma away, the same basic principle applies. Only instead of an apple, the prevention comes from another favourite fruit.

Now, the mainstream would have you believe that the best way to fight asthma is to tote around an inhaler, packed full of drugs that could actually increase the risk of an asthma attack.

And of course, there's barely ever any mention of prevention.

But I believe prevention is the best medicine. Adopting measures that protect you from the biggest threats to your health is just common sense — sadly, though, what we think of as common sense is mostly ignored by mainstream medicine. They'd rather wait until you're sick, and then stick to a strict policy of "cut it and drug it."

Before I get off on too much of a tangent here, let's get back to the point. Preventing asthma.

A recent study at the Imperial College of London found that children who ate just one banana per day were more than one- third less likely to develop breathing problems and asthma symptoms than children who didn't munch on daily bananas.

I talk a lot about the power of food — something the mainstream just doesn't seem to get. It boils down to another old saying: "You are what you eat." What we put into our bodies affects the condition of our bodies — again, it's just common sense.

Consuming bananas early in life has also been linked to a lower risk of childhood leukaemia.

Back to asthma, other studies have shown that even just one burger a week can increase the risk of asthma in children.

Another trial also found that bromelain, the enzyme in pineapple, could reduce the inflammation that comes with asthma.

Now, for full disclosure: The research on bananas and asthma was supported by Dole. So, there's a certain amount of banana-pushing going on there, I'm sure. Still, the results are pretty compelling — and there are worse things to push on people than bananas, right?

Keep a watchful eye

Q: I've seen you recommend testosterone replacement for men, but other sources say not to do it. They say it can cause prostate cancer. I'm confused — can you clear things up for me?

Dr Jonathan V. Wright: Testosterone doesn't cause prostate cancer all by itself. If it did, there would be an epidemic of prostate cancer in young men. But it does significantly increase the growth rate of a pre-existing cancer that may not have been detected yet.

If your testosterone levels are low and you decide to take testosterone — real, bio-identical testosterone, not a patentable version — make sure to have your PSA level checked before you start, and then check it again in two to three months. If it rises more than a little in that time, you may have uncovered pre-existing prostate cancer. Check with your doctor or a urologist right away, and stop using testosterone until you've fully investigated the situation.
