Children living in urban centers have a significantly higher prevalence of food allergies than those living in rural areas, US study data show.

The study found that children living in big cities are more than twice as likely to have peanut and shellfish allergies compared with those living in rural communities.

"We have found for the first time that higher population density corresponds with a greater likelihood of food allergies in children," said lead author Ruchi Gupta (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois) in a press statement.
