USA! Hay Fe-ver! USA! Sniff and Sneeze!  Why is it that U.S.-born children more likely to have asthma, hay fever and eczema than foreign-born kids? A new study finds children living in the United States who were born elsewhere are less likely to have allergies than those born in the United States.

 

The study, published online April 29 in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, examined data from more than 91,600 children under the age of 18 who took part in the 2007-08 National Survey of Children’s Health. The analysis revealed that children born outside the country were significantly less likely to have allergies, including asthma, eczema, hay fever and food allergies. The researchers also found that foreign-born children whose parents were also born outside the United States were much less likely to have allergies than those whose parents were born in the United States.

We may not know why but we do know a good pharmacy department…small cancellation.
