Swimming in chlorinated pools 'increases asthma risk five-fold'

Children who swim regularly in chlorinated pools are five times more likely to develop asthma, research has found.

Swimming is recommended as a good form of exercise for asthmatics because the warm humid air is less likely to trigger attacks than other physical activities.

It is thought the chlorine fumes floating around the surface of the pool may help to trigger the condition by irritating the upper airways.
