Fewer food allergies among new immigrants and Canadians with low education
AllerGen researchers have found that Canadians with lower education and new Canadians (individuals who immigrated to Canada within the last 10 years) have fewer food allergies than the general population.
The researchers collected data from 5,734 households, representing over 15,000 Canadians from low income, immigrant and Aboriginal populations.
The study, published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, helps researchers to better understand the lived experiences of food allergies in vulnerable populations.
