Pesticides linked to food allergies

A new study links pesticides to food allergies.

Allergists report that high levels of a chemical used in pesticides, and to chlorinate water, are associated with food allergies.

Scientists analyzed urine sample data from a study of more than 10,000 people.

They believe high levels of dichlorophenols may weaken food tolerance in some people.

Much more research is warranted.
