Allergy and Immunology News of the Day

Health News of the Day is a daily summary made from the selected links I post on Twitter. It is in a bullet points format with links to the original sources which include 350 RSS feeds that produce about 2,500 items per day.

  • Exposure to a cat AND a dog (both) during childhood has been linked to a lower risk of developing allergies. Children who owned both a cat and a dog less likely to develop allergy. Living with either cat or dog not protective.
  • Children with a family history of allergies are less likely to develop eczema if they live with a dog starting in infancy
  • Allergic rhinitis , a chronic inflammatory disease of upper airway, affects 60 million people in the United States

  • Impact of asthma controller medications on clinical, economic, and patient-reported outcomes: ICS best, if you use them
