An Unusual Way to Avoid Allergies

According to Professor Graham Rock, allergies are more ubiquitous than ever because everyone is too clean. The body's immune system reacts to foreign substances and if it's unfamiliar with something it could overreact in a "trigger happy" way. Professor Rock recommends eating food that has fallen on the floor, having a dog and kissing relatives to avoid allergies.

Indoor Tomatoes

Soon, tomatoes grown inside greenhouses will be just as tasty and prevelant as the conventionally grown veggie. More tomatoes are now grown indoors and the environmental conditions necessary for a happy tomato happen to be easily replicated inside a greenhouse. Growing tomatoes in greenhouses has nearly doubled between 2007 and 2012.
