I saw something once, and I don't remember where (it was years ago) and so I don't know how much truth there is to it. However, apparently some science joint dos a big scale allergy test on x amount of kids from the US and x amount of kids from some tribal villages where kids were drinking river water and eating food from tree or wild beasts they killed. Apparently the difference in results was not even close. The tribal children had almost zero allergies where as the US results were really high.
Again, not sure where I read it or how truthful, but I found it interesting and I can see some merit in it.

Of my 4 kids only one has an allergy. My 18 month old breaks out in a rash and vomits if given Nurofen (actually he may not be anymore, I threw all my Nurofen out because I don't want to take a chance).
I was allergic to citrus as a kid, very rashy. It went away by the time I was about 5, but when I was pregnant with my 2nd, I developed an allergy to pineapple (not sure if the pregnancy is related, it may just be the timing) and over the course of a year it went from a slight tingle, to swollen mouth and throat. Nowadays, I can't even eat fruit that has touched pineapple as my tongue will start swelling. Allergies perplex me some.
