Yes one studie was done this year. It ask us about our vaccinal
practice.
More than this another studies (Deutch one) compare east deutch child
and west deutch child. It told us that modern way of life is giving more
allergy than ancient one (east one) but with less infant mortality.
We have to look at all the studies before coming back in our medical
practice.
