Recent studies have shown that in several countries atopic sensitization to common allergens (common atopy) and atopic symptoms are markedly less prevalent in children living on a farm, compared with non-farm children living in the same rural areas. Living conditions on farms may, however, vary largely between different countries. It is also not yet known whether the "protective" effect of a farm environment can also be found in adults.
