Dust Mites Trump Asthma Prevention Guidelines
Date:4/16/2008

ew, Gotzsche said, shows people are being mislead by the 2007 U.S. guidelines from the National Asthma Education and Prevention program. The program recommends actions such as putting mattresses and pillows in dust-proof encasings, and weekly hot water washings of sheets, blankets and stuffed toys.

"Reviews and guidelines should reflect the facts," he said. "It is difficult, perhaps, to realize that we cannot really do anything, but there is no evidence to support these guidelines, and they are misleading. It is about time specialists start becoming honest with patients."

More information

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute has more about the causes of asthma.
