Kids who grow up on farms have lower allergy risks, stronger lungs as adults

A recent study from the University of Melbourne in Australia has shown that children who grew up on a farm in a rural environment were less likely to develop allergies than their city dwelling counterparts. The study backs up similar findings for Amish children in Indiana and seems to suggest that constant exposure to allergens in youth offers protective benefits against allergies later in life.
