      @frogyfish: thank you for reading and commenting, vitamin D is important too for asthma sufferer. I've read and notice that milk (beside goat milk as I write in my hub) which is one of source vitamin D could be as an allergen. Many asthma sufferer avoid drink milk so they have vitamin D deficiency, this lead to osteoporosis in the future. Maybe I'll write about it too later :)

      @Marie-AnneLeClerc: thanks for stopping by, your comment encourage me.
