On Atopic DiseasesInclude asthma, rhinitis, eczema, food allergies and other conditions where there is a specific immunological reaction to an environmental antigen. They are common and affect between 10 and 30% of the population of most first world countries.
Atopic eczema is much more common in young children than adults and is sometimes called childhood or infantile eczema. 5 to 10% of children develop atopic eczema and for 80% of cases this is seen before the age of one. People who have atopic eczema may have other allergic conditions, such as asthma or hay fever, or often have a family history of atopic disease. This makes it a good candidate for study to determine genes that cause either eczema specifically or atopy in general.
Does anyone else link this to the sickening number of vaccinations our "FIRST" world countries are giving to our children????
