allergies and life space
« on: 25/05/2011 14:00:31 »
I grew up in the midwest of the States and then lived 4 years of my adult life in the pacific northwest. In all that time I've been in rural and big city environments and have never experienced allergies of any kind. When I moved to rural Japan I suddenly had seasonal allergies.

My wife was the opposite. She has lived all over the US, always had them there, and hasn't had any allergies in Japan.

Last year we moved to a metropolitan area of Japan, and we are both fine.

My heritage is English, German, Swedish, and Native American. Hers is Western European, perhaps with some Eastern European.

What explains our situation?
