Doesn't discuss asthma in nonabused which there would be, and leaves out all cases among women of other ethnicities. Besides antibiotics have been proven to cause asthma and vaccines cause lifelong allergies and more.

Asthma is not necessarily hereditary. Rather, it is often link to early exposure to air pollution, cigarette, smoke, etc. that includes pre natal exposure.

Also to tylenol and antibiotics, and don't rule out vaccines.
