Here is a show I though others on here might be interested in watching tomorrow. It's 7pm Eastern Time. Canadian Network though - but if you come back to the website later after airing they always have all the past episodes playing and available through download.
The Nature of Things, The Allergy Fix:
Here is a link to the preview:www.cbc.ca/natureofthings/episodes/the-allergy-fix
In the link above it says a startling statistic:
"North American kids: more than three times as many children have food allergies now than twenty years ago. And one out of every three children is now allergic to foods, animals, or plants. Something puzzling, and frightening, is going on with our immune systems.
Looks like it will deal with the hygiene hypothesis etc...
Interestingly I was asked to go to a birthday party for a good friend that I have not seen in a few years. He's my age. On the invitation all of a sudden it says "snacks will be provided that are wheat free, dairy free, nut free and no oranges please"... Somehow he has developed allergies to these over the last 3-4 years.
Crazy... He's not a kid.. he's an adult that randomly developed these.
