Eating plenty of tomatoes, carrots and leafy green vegetable could help in reducing asthma risk in women, says a study.

Earlier research had found that asthma attacks in women were more than men due to hormonal changes, particularly during their monthly periods.

Researchers at the National Institute of Public Health in Mexico studied about 69,000 women and found lowered asthma risk in those who ate plenty of such vegetables, reported the online edition of medical journal Thorax.
