    income the greater the incidence of allergies so I'd like to know what Allergywoman is basing this on

    Food and respiratory allergy prevalence increased with income level. Children with family income equal to or greater than 200% of the poverty level had the highest prevalence rates.

      facts.  ;-)

      To be fair, the report is talking about levels, and  allergywoman's (!) comment was about rate-of-increase.

      Often, low levels of anything show higher rates of increase (or loss).

    •  Huh? That's what I wrote. Poor children have (0+ / 0-)

      a lower rate of food and respiratory allergies.

      According to the CDC, poor children have a lower chance of having food and respiratory allergies, but a higher chance of having skin allergies.  
      However, I also added that poor children have a higher incidence of skin allergies.

      I did not find anything about the rate of increase in incidence, though, which is another thing altogether.

        the original comment by allergywoman said poor are more subject to allergies and the link disproves her comment
        I'm curious where she got the idea from, if she has any links
