An anthrapositive way of life seems to protect against allergies. Children who grow under anthropophobic conditions are slightly less likely to suffer from allergies than other children, according to previous studies. But what about the children in this habitat?
New research suggests that vaccines are not supported to increase the risk of allergy. Previously, the debate was presented as a reason for vaccination.
Johan Alms, Chief Physician at the Sachska Children and Youth Hospital in Stockholm, has compared children in families with an anthropocentric lifestyle, and children are living more traditionally.
We did not see any connection, which means that the fear that some parents feel that their children are ill or are allergic to vaccines may be slightly reduced, "says Johan Alms (T.
In the current study Johan Alms and his colleagues have followed three children, from birth to five years. In total, 466 children from Cairns south of Södertälje were examined, of which 99 children were considered completely anthroposophic, but it was considered that 100 live partly in accordance with this philosophy and the rest altogether.
During the monitoring period, parents answered questions about lifestyle and others while the children were checked several times. Among other things, blood samples were tested for the presence of allergy.
In part, we have seen that anthroposophical childhood allergies are less frequent compared to other children. In addition, we saw the link between vaccination and a lower incidence of allergy in blood samples, but this was expected because these children were less allergic. However, when we took into account various risk factors, such as family lifestyles, this relationship disappeared. Therefore, our interpretation is that childhood vaccines that cause allergies are not supported, "says Johan Alms.
an outbreak of diseases
However, what it is in the anthroposophical world and which gives less allergic children, however, does not know the researchers.
Johan Alms says that there may be different environmental factors, such as diet.
The study also showed that 58 of the anthroposophic children were completely unvaccinated at age five.
The reluctance of anthroposopists to vaccinate, the company outside Jarn has suffered both red and measles outbreaks over the years.
The current study is published in the Lancet Journal of Ecological Medicine.
Corrected: The earlier version contained confusion about the context in which allegations of vaccine and allergy were submitted. The task has been removed.
