ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study about the protective effect of kissing against allergies. Researchers at Satou Hospital in Japan found that kissing relaxes the body and decreases the release of histamine, the chemical being discharged in response to allergens. 12 couples who suffered from hay fever have kissed for 30 minutes and presented lower level of immunoglobulin E (IgE) which prompts the production of histamine.
