In the UK, scientists now offer a postcode based map of allergies.
“By examining almost 6,000 referrals from 672 GPs in Devon and Cornwall over 11 years, as well as consultants’ letters, population data and morbidity statistics, researchers have been able to trace how allergy hotspots develop over time.”
Severe allergic reaction impacts 1 in 3 people in the UK. The map suggests people suffer from different allergies depending on where they live.
