American children born outside of the country are less likely to have allergies

(May 3, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From New York – A new report published in JAMA Pediatrics finds that US children who are born outside of the country have lower prevalence of allergic disease. Researchers studied nearly 100,000 children aged 0-17 years, measuring outcomes of allergic disease including asthma, eczema, hay fever, and food allergies. Results showed that children who were born outside of the US, and whose parents were born outside the US,  had significantly reduced risk of these diseases than those were born in the US and whose parents were born in the US. After residing in the US for one decade, however, had much greater odds of developing allergic disorders eczema and hay fever, than those who only resided in the country for 0-2 years.
