Abstract:When Spring is in the air, so are pollen and other allergens that cause hay fever sufferers to keep the tissues close at hand. Findings from a new German study suggest there may be a dietary connection as well. In the two-year study, researchers followed 334 adults with hay fever and 1,336 without. Those with the most trans oleic acid in their diets—a monounsaturated fat found mainly in meat, butter, milk and cheese—were nearly three times as likely to have hay fever compared to those who ate the least.
