Allergies to Monoculture Food Crops Growing

Allergies to Monoculture Food Crops Growing

Not so long ago a family farm produced a myriad of crops for the family and local community, including vegetables, corn, squash, cabbage and others. Today's farms are a different proposition altogether, and monoculture food production is not only proving to be hard on the land and environment, but it is also increasingly causing hay fever and allergies.

Allergy specialists from France's Nancy University and the Allergy Vigilance Network conducted a large-scale study of children and adults with regard to their sensitivity to the monoculture crops of corn/maize and rapeseed – grown on giant farms in the midst of small towns scattered throughout Europe.

The sixty-nine allergy researchers, members of the Allergy Vigilance Network, conducted a study that included 2,515 children and 2,857 adults. The subjects were tested for either having an allergy or sensitivity to these crops – or having an immune sensitivity that would likely to develop into an allergy.

Hand Sanitizer Reports on Allergies and Asthma Miss Point

Hand Sanitizer Reports on Allergies and Asthma Miss Point

NBC and other media outlets have recently reported findings from a study released this summer in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. The media reports that hand-sanitizers and being "too clean" can actually produce unintended effects, including greater incidence of allergies and asthma among children.

And they are right. But for the wrong reasons. The study being quoted is from Swiss, German and U.S. researchers who combined a previous study comparing Swiss children who lived on farms with Swiss children not living on farms. The study showed that the Swiss children who lived on farms had significantly less incidence of allergies and asthma than did the Swiss children not living on farms.

In that Swiss study, nearly 14,000 children were surveyed between 2006 and 2007, including over 3,000 farming children and almost 11,000 non-farming children. In this study, 38% of the non-farming children had allergies compared to 19% of the farming children, and 19% of the non-farming children had asthma compared to 15% of the farming children. In addition, 19% of the non-farming children had allergic dermatitis compared to 16% of the farming children.

Low Antioxidant Intake Linked to Childhood Allergies

Low Antioxidant Intake Linked to Childhood Allergies

Environmental medicine researchers from Sweden's Karolinska Institute have confirmed that antioxidant intake among children reduces the risk of allergies.

The researchers studied the diets and allergy rates among 2,422 Swedish children who were eight years old. Blood samples were analyzed together with diets, gathered by way of questionnaires taken by parents of the children.

The researchers compared antioxidant intake with allergy sensitization, including hay fever and asthma incidence.
