According to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, living in the United States increases your risk of allergies.
The study concludes that living in the US for a decade or more can raise the risk of most allergies.
Former Financial and Food Industry analyst Robyn O’Brien says, “Food allergies have been skyrocketing in the United States in the last fifteen years. Not only has the CDC reported a 265% increase in the rates of hospitalizations related to food allergic reactions in a ten year period, but the sales of EpiPens, a life-saving medical device for those with food allergies, has also seen record sales growth according to the New York Times.”
The study led by Jonathan Silverberg of St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York, “Children born outside the United States had significantly lower prevalence of any allergic diseases (20.3%) than those born in the United States (34.5%).”
You may be asking why the United States is more prone to allergies and studies concluded it may be a symptom of a hypersensitive immune system or something wrong with our food system and the way they have been genetically engineered foods.
