Declining biodiversity could be contributing to the rise of asthma and allergies
Quote:
new study from Finland shows that lower biodiversity may be contributing to the rise of asthma, allergies and other inflammatory diseases among people living in cities.

The study found that individuals living on farms or near forests had more diverse bacteria on their skin.

They also had lower allergen sensitivity than people living in areas with less environmental biodiversity, such as cities.

Worth reading and maybe some advice worth noting on when you should wash your hands. YUK!
