Allergies are on the rise and there are a number of theories why. Some speculate that it's due to more parents getting kids tested for allergies; allergists will find allergies thta 40 years ago would have been dismissed as inconveniences. Other speculation is that over-hyped concern about sterility regarding babies has weakened their immune system.
A study conducted in 2008 by the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg says diet may be the culprit.
In Västra Götaland County in western Sweden, half of all teenagers are considered affected by asthma, nasal symptoms and eczema, almost 10 percentage points higher than when a similar study was conducted in 2000.
Who is least affected? Those who eat more fish and butter.

Did they only consider diet, or did they consider weather and environmental factors?
Is Sweden a dry and cold place, or a wet and cold place? The dryer the weather, the less likely there will be allergic reactions. That's why doctors recommend to serious allergy sufferers that they move to arid places like Arizona, and avoid humid places like Florida.
