Changes in life style are thought to be involved in this increase, namely hygiene, child vaccination, housing insulation and food consumption patterns. This book reflects the current ideas for future possibilities of allergy prevention, using integrated and multidisciplinary strategies and covering the entire knowledge framework from comprehensive fundamental research to implementation into society.
