I seen a thing on anaphylaxis the other day, and people developing allergies is on a sharp increase. Also that the developed countries have higher rates. It seems that a modern lifestyle is somehow causing people to develop allergies.
There are many theories but the leading one is that the more hygienic we are making it for the kids, the less natural immunities they are building up. Also that they use antibiotics to grow all kinds of things these days, as it allows the product, be it chicken or farmed shellfish or even some plant products, to grow larger and healthier for not being stunted by infections.
These antibiotics are passed on to the consumer through the product so, a lot like the hygienic environment theory, we are not developing natural immunities, we are dependent on artificial immunisation.
