Some aspects of dirty living can be healthy. A new study posits that the decline of plant and animal diversity in cities may be linked to the recent surge of allergies and other chronic inflammatory diseases.

Fascinating. It makes sense, especially for very large cities and towns. However, when growing up in Ottawa, a city with a lot of green spaces and the river...on the edge of the city where I lived, there were meadows, many acres of untouched wild areas. I have lived in wild areas and in small towns with a diversity of wildlife and plant life...but now am allergic to the cat that owns me, grass pollen as well as birch, maple and larch tree pollen which are everywhere. I will always have cats as companions and photograph often in rural areas on isolated dirt roads with plenty of wild grasses and the birch, maple and other trees.
