Unpasturized milk may reduce asthma, allergy risks

Posted by Nancy B.

Children who drink unpasturized farm milk when very young may have a reduced risk of asthma and allergy, according to a new study conducted in Europe. Researchers studied 14,893 children, between 5 and 13 years of age, in rural and suburban communities across Europe and reported their findings in the journal Clinical and Experimental Allergy. "All the children drinking unpasteurized farm milk and eating other farm-related dairy products showed the same level of protection against asthma and allergies, regardless of whether they were living on a farm or not," Dr. Marco Waser, lead researcher at the University of Basel in Switzerland, said in a Reuters story. Children benefited most if they drank unpasturized milk before one-year-old, he said.'storyID=2007-05-18T223240Z_01_ROB881117_RTRUKOC_0_US-MILK-ASTHMA.xml&WTmodLoc=NewsHome-C3-healthNews-3
