  Children on farms at lower risk of asthma

Photo of article Children living on farms are significantly less likely to develop asthma than their peers, a new study shows. The research was partially supported by two EU-funded projects: GABRIEL ('A multidisciplinary study to identify the genetic and environmental causes of asthma in the European Community') and PARSIFAL ('Prevention of allergy – risk factors for sensitization in children related to farming and anthroposophic life style'). GABRIEL was funded under the 'Life sciences, genomics and biotechnology for health' Thematic area of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) and PARSIFAL under the 'Quality of life and management of living resources' Programme of the EU's Fifth Framework Programme (FP5).
