About

This study evaluates the effect of vegetation cover on certain Interleukin-10 and immunoglobulinE (IgE) among children (3-5 y old). Children will either be in a kindergarten that does not have forest floor and agricultural land in the backyards, or alternatively they will be in a kindergarten that does have forest floor and agricultural land in the backyards.

Full description

High vegetation cover is assumed to change immunoglobulinE (IgE) and interleukin-10 concentrations in blood serum. Children living in high-green kindergarten are compared with those kindergarten living utilizing backyards with a low-green cover.
