Kids Who Eat Fish and/or Live On a Farm At Less Risk of Allergies Later in Life!

Researchers in Germany who have followed thousands of families with children have discovered that children who eat fish before the age of 9 months had less allergies 4.5 years later than children who did not eat fish at the same age.

Furthermore, they found that school-age kids living on/near a farm were two-thirds less likely to suffer from hay fever or asthma than children with no exposure to a farm.

These studies will be published soon. Read the media report here.
