Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Weight likely cause for one-fourth of asthma cases in kids with obesity

A study including health data for more than 500,000 children in the US suggests obesity might be to blame for about a quarter (23 to 27 percent) of asthma in children who are obese. This could mean about 10 percent of all kids ages 2 to 17 with asthma — almost 1 million children in the US — might have avoided the illness by maintaining a healthy weight.
