Three common asthma inhalers containing the drugs salmeterol or formoterol may be causing four out of five U.S. asthma-related deaths per year and should be taken off the market, researchers from Cornell and Stanford universities have concluded after a search of medical literature.

Why do so many people believe stuff just because the medical industry says it is a better question than yours. This why do people believe stuff from the internet nonsense of what $%$%wits that will believe anything from a guy in a labcoat will always say. University educated types are the most gullible you know. Just put it in a book and they will believe it.

CCTV News reported, with video clips, a mother feeding live tadpoles in a bowl, to her asthmatic child, saying she learned from the internet that it could cure him of his asthma!

Doctors immediately responded that there is no truth in that claim; on the contrary, the child would get another health problem from eating tadpoles!  A video clip shows a growth in the body of a child in a previous case of tadpole eating.


I'm afraid that neither claim is correct. The body will just digest the tadpoles, the same as it would digest any other protein-based food source. Eating tadpoles is no different than eating silkworms, scorpions, or any other insect.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

Well what about that boy that ate a slug and now he is paralyzed. Don't French people like to eat slugs though?

Yes I have researched this in quite some detail, and the evidence I have come across is that eating Tadpoles DOES STOP the acceleration of Asthma. It also 'suggests' that there is a 90% chance that it could cure it.

How could it be possible? Eating live tadpoles can trigger a parasitic infection.

And you know what else? People with asthma are twice as likely to get depression or anxiety. ... A ...

"There is no such thing as asthma. Its just in their heads."
Really?  So you think doctors all along have been wrong?  The psychosomatic part is one trigger, but so are others like cold drinks and pollen.  It is a medical condition, not a purely psychological one as you seem to suggest.  Asthma sufferers have actually died; so don't dismiss it too lightly!  Of course eating tadpoles is far from scientific!
