A study of more than 8,000 infants found a possible link between the use of multivitamin supplements and the risk of asthma and food allergies, researchers said today.

The report from Children's National Medical Center in Washington and other research centers said the reason for the apparent link was not clear. It suggested more study is required to find if the link is a factor in an increase in asthmatic and allergic disease in recent years.

The research was based on data from a government study that began following mothers and infants in 1991. Reuters
