Allergies – respiratory like asthma and bronchitis, and skin related problems such as eczema and rash – generally worsen during winter. An expert suggests ways to improve immunity by eating vitamin rich food.

“Allergy is a reflection of reduced immunity. To improve immunity, fruits rich in vitamin C such as oranges, sweet lime and lemon should be incorporated into the diet,” Ravindra Gupta, Consultant – Internal Medicine, Columbia Asia Hospital, Gurgaon said in a statement.

“People should have a balanced diet with lots of green vegetables, fruits and nuts,” he added.

He says it’s best to avoid food items such as milk, yoghurt, cheese, ice cream, bananas and cucumbers as these trigger a number of problems like eczema and asthma.

People with allergic tendencies are also more sensitive to smoke produced by cigarettes, vehicles or even incense sticks.

Common symptoms of allergies are burning eyes, cough and shortness of breath.

Eat food items rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which contain natural anti-inflammatory agents to fight allergies. Good sources of Omega-3 are soya bean, pumpkin seeds, walnuts and salmon. Fruit juice and green tea should also be included in your diet. (Bollywood Country)

Food items like hard boiled sweets and dried fruits tantalise taste buds, but they may attack your teeth for worse.

Femalefirst.co.uk shares a list of some of the culprits:

* Dried fruit: They are sticky and high in sugar. That means they not only stick to teeth easily, but the sugar feeds the bacteria in the mouth, which can lead to dental erosion. It’s best if you don’t overeat dried fruits.

* Fizzy drinks: Sugary and fizzy drinks are especially bad for teeth when you choose to sip for long periods of time. Your teeth get exposed to acid present in the drinks. Finish the drink as quickly as possible rather than sipping it through the meal or while watching TV.

* Hard boiled sweets: These sweets not only stick to the teeth, but also stay in the mouth for a long time as the sweets take time to get dissolved.
