More than a million adults in the UK may be wrongly diagnosed as asthmatic and be receiving unnecessary medication as a result, warns an NHS watchdog.
NICE says a third of adults diagnosed with this common lung condition have no actual clinical signs of asthma. It's drafted new guidelines for doctors to help with diagnosis.
Children are eating the equivalent of seven and a half Cadbury fingers for breakfast every time they tuck into some popular breakfast cereals, a report claims today.

Good Morning Britain has helped to save a baby's life!
Hannah Gilmartin, whose 11 month old daughter started choking on a tealight candle, was able to save her baby's life after she had watched our programme on Monday 12 January.
We had broadcast how to perform CPR on your child if they started choking. It was all part of a "baby choking campaign" from St John Ambulance called "The Chokeables" which featured David Waliiams.
The advert has been credited with saving seven lives and over four million people viewed the advert in 10 days.
Drugs are not the answer. There is still nothing better than lifestyle change to stay healthy.
A diet jab that can help women drop two dress sizes has been approved. Described by doctors as life-changing, liraglutide could be on prescription in months.
Slimmers typically lose almost a stone more than they would by simply counting calories and exercising more. The European Commission is expected to rubber-stamp the drugs licence within the next two months, paving the way for it to go on sale.
Makers Novo Nordisk says it could be launched in Europe, including the UK, this year. But there are fears Nice will judge too expensive for routine use on NHS.
Dr Hilary insists the jab is not a replacement for healthy living.
He said: "If we are going to use it on the NHS we have to use it very carefully and on a selected few."
Labour say David Cameron is to blame for this winter's A&E crisis - and insist new figures show how bad it has been.

Two hundred operations are cancelled each day and waiting times are rising across the board, according to an authoritative report which warns that the NHS is now in critical condition.
Patients face even longer waits as many hospitals predict they will run out of money within months, with problems spreading well beyond accident and emergency units.
As the latest A&E figures for England are published, we take a snapshot around the country to see how the nations are coping.
NICE is consulting on draft recommendations to help people strike the right balance when it comes to being out in the sun.
Communicating the benefits and risks of sunlight exposure to the general public is contentious because exposing the skin too much time in the sun (ultraviolet light) is a risk of skin cancer; too little can lead to vitamin D deficiency.
Women are at a much greater risk of suffering a heart attack than men because doctors aren't using the right tests to diagnose them properly the British Heart Foundation says.
Heart disease is the UK's single biggest killer and women are three times more likely to die of a heart attack than breast cancer. Now the British Heart Foundation is urging hospitals to adopt a much more sensitive test which can pick up problems in women more quickly and accurately.
We call them our miracles... they are our miracles.
It was a dilemma no mum should face - the excitement of expecting twins followed by the horror of having to choose which one should live. Faced with this terrible decision after doctors said that both babies could die if she didn't choose one of them, 31-year-old Carmelle Hartgrove decided to leave it to fate and was rewarded with two gorgeous healthy little girls.
