Peanut consumption in infancy prevents peanut allergy, study finds

24 febrero 2015

Introduction of peanut products into the diets of infants at high risk of developing peanut allergy was safe and led to an 81 percent reduction in the subsequent development of the allergy, a clinical trial has found. «Food allergies are a growing concern, not just in the United States but around the world,» said an expert. «For a study to show a benefit of this magnitude in the prevention of peanut allergy is without precedent. The results have the potential to transform how we approach food allergy prevention.»
