Researchers say pesticides and tap water could be causing more Americans to develop food allergies.

A large-scale study published in the journal of the American College of Allergy looked at over 10,000 people and found nearly a quarter of them tested positive for a chemical used in pesticides and in water chlorination.

High levels of the chemical in the human body are associated with a low tolerance for certain kinds of foods.

Food allergies are on the rise in the US, affecting 15 million people.
