Lung Fun

Mean lung volumes were larger, but airway size was smaller, than international standards.

Shorter telomere length showed moderate associations with poorer airflow parameters, but not vital capacity (lung volume) in mid‐life adults. However, there was no convincing evidence of associations in children. 

In two unselected populations (HealthNuts and Longitudinal Study of Australian Children) using harmonised protocols, the likely association of caesarean delivery with developing childhood allergy was small.
