JULY 2016 FOOD ALLERGY NEWS

7/11/2016:  A Preservative Could Be Triggering Food Allergies 

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences awarded 1.5 million for research on tBHQ or tert-butylhydroquinone, a preservative approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1972.  This preservative appears to show a different impact on T cells which can trigger food allergies.  Oddly, this preservative is often not listed on food allergy labels.  [1]

7/25/2016:  Brothers and Sisters of Food Allergic Children

Apparent good news for the siblings of food allergic children has been found by Dr. Ruchi Gupta of Children's Hospital of Chicago in that a study including over 2,000 people where about one-half had allergies, found their siblings did not necessarily have food allergies at the same rate, but more along the rate of the general population.
