Asthma and Soy Beans

A Viceroy Butterfly gently flaps its wings over a Kentucky prairie with no apparent intent to change the world, yet that simple little action changes all life on earth. The phrase "Butterfly Effect" refers to the idea, affiliated with chaos theory, that a butterfly's wings may create tiny atmospheric alterations, eventually affecting a tornado's path, timing and even occurrence. Asthmatics may be the first humans in line to suffer the effects of the little butterfly's whimsical dance. Scientists at the University of Georgia and Emory University discovered hospital emergency room visits, due to asthma attacks, increased significantly after thunderstorms. But down the chaotic butterfly effect line other humans, specifically the soy-bean-eating variety, would also be affected, because Soy beans grown through very wet summers contain smaller amounts of vitamin E.
Every little thing affects everything else on the planet. This is the essence of life.
