Researchers have recently shown that by avoiding certain foods, pregnant mothers who already had children with food allergies were able to reduce the likelihood that their future children would demonstrate similar sensitizations. Dr. Annette MacKoul talks to WINK viewers about this study.
Study involved two groups at two ages:
Maternal avoidance and no avoidance group.
Children studied at ages 18 months and 3 years.
Third trimester of pregnancy
Up to child's third birthday
Significantly fewer children developed food allergies!
Significantly fewer children developed asthma!
Dust mite sensitization and eczema were less at 18 months and the same at 3 years!
