Dermatitis is Evidence of Food Allergy and Asthma

11/15/2017: Dermatitis is Evidence of Food Allergy and Asthma

A study in Ontario, Canada that was published in Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology explains evidence showing one-year old children who have ezcema or atopic dermatitis are 7-times more likely than other infants to develop asthma, and significantly more likely to have a food allergy  by age three. This study included 3,500 mothers and children from pregnancy to age five years and beyond [1].  Another study indicates that mothers should breastfeed and consume all sorts of foods, stating, "Food allergy research, education co-funds study supporting varied, allergen-rich diet for pregnant and nursing mothers" [2].
