Cockroaches Cause Asthma and Allergies, Eek!

Posted Nov 19 2008 7:18am

And not just roaches. Mice too! New research in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology claims antibodies developed to cockroach and mouse proteins increase the risk of wheeze, hay fever and eczema in young children; from Eurekalert.
