Health » Birth Order, Allergies Tied to Risk of Lymphoma
Apr 22, 2005


Australian researchers found that people who were either elder siblings or only children had relatively lower risks of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or NHL. A similar protective effect was seen among people with a history of hay fever or food allergies.
The researchers speculate that early immune system development may be behind all of these associations. In brief, early infection -- more likely with multiple kids in a family -- may set the immune system in such a way that allergies don't develop; but on the other hand this setting may increase the chances of developing lymphoma.
