New research on children who have Asthma

90% of children with two specific gene makers, and were prone to wheezing when they had a cold, developed Asthma by the age of six.

Kids with these occurences were nearly four times as likely to develop Asthma as those without the genetic markers and did not wheeze.

Researchers aren't sure how the genes and virus interact to cause asthma, but suggest pediatricians find ways to prevent wheezing in young children with the Asthma genes.
