London: People suffering from allergy are far less likely to contract cancer than others, according to two studies.
The research said evidence was growing that putting up with allergies provide a medical advantage and found that children with airborne allergies also had reduced rates of throat, skin, lung and intestinal cancer. "More work is still needed, but the numbers show that allergy is a statistically significant protective factor," said Zuber Mulla, an epidemiologist at Texas Tech University, who led the ovarian cancer study. Canadian studies showed that having an allergy or hay fever lowered the chances of getting pancreatic cancer by up to 58 percent. The research into leukaemia and cancer was carried out at Minnesota University, America. IANS
