People with asthma may want to avoid eating ham, salami or other processed meats. 

A new French study found asthmatics who ate the most processed meats were 76% more likely to have worsening symptoms than those who ate the least.

Researchers say nitrites in these meats have been linked to airway inflammation.

Four or more weekly servings had the greatest impact on asthma symptoms.
