Washington: A new study has found that children living in areas with lower levels of sunlight are at greater risk of developing food allergies and the skin condition eczema, compared to those in areas with higher UV.A team of researchers from the European Centre for Environment and Human Health, along with several Australian institutions used data from a study of Australian children and analysed how rates of food allergy, eczema and asthma varied throughout the country. As well as finding a link between latitude and allergies to peanut and egg, the results showed that on average children in the south of the country are twice as likely to develop eczema as those in the north.The report builds upon existing evidence that suggests exposure to the sun may play a role in rising levels of food allergy and eczema.
