Eliezrah - this is in reference to the LEAP study that was announced at AAAAI last weekend. You can read more about it here (link is also in the above article) Landmark Study May Change How We Feed Peanut Butter To Infants

Thanks Kathy. I can see why some people can read it as blaming the parents.

Thank you doctors for posting this. I have wondered what I could've, should've, or would've done better, different, or something. Beating myself up over it doesn't change anything. I know all those parents out there with severely peanut allergic children did not do everything the same. I actually think it would've been a lot more difficult to watch my infant have an anaphylactic reaction than my 2 year old. At least she could talk to me.

A free press is not free to lie, mislead, and over-hype and it is high time to hold them accountable for all the damage they are doing to kids with allergies and society in general. The press is hugely irresponsible in how they report scientific findings. Science is slow, particular, and often very inconclusive. How many kids are going to DIE because of irresponsible reporting?! We have ongoing battle with family members and school administrators who deep in their hearts believe this is our...

This study is saying "correlation does not equal causation" to me. The hygiene hypothesis would be great except it does not explain babies born with food allergies on Day One of Life, like my daughter. We are not avid cleaners, our unwashed dishes sit around for days, we visit farms several times a year and muck about, are outside getting dirty all the time and we don't bathe our kids very often. I am more inclined to believe food allergies have something to do with the way our public...

I think we've learned no one study will ever explain everything....My DS had antibiotics the first two weeks of life, his father had a milk allergy as an infant, and much later I found out his uncle had soy and wheat, and EVEN LATER (like last year) I found out my ex-father in law also had a milk allergy as a baby and was failure to thrive.I think even if I lived on a farm and let him roll in the mud with the pigs, that combo would have been hard to overcome!

I wish this could have applied to my children. My 4yo boy tested highly positive to peanuts at 6 months of age, so he would have been deemed too high risk to participate, anyway. And then there's my daughter, who has FPIES and still hasn't gotten around to trying peanuts. Now I'm terrified that the extremely slow process of introducing food into her diet means I've already missed my window of early prevention. She's definitely high risk for developing a peanut allergy since she has a sibling...

Hi, is there a typo in this summary? I may just be tired, but I don't see how this reflects a risk reduction (at all, let alone 67%): Thanks, Naomi However, when the authors evaluated the infants that were able to maintain the study protocol by eating these foods consistently each week, they did find a significant difference in rates of food allergy: - 4% in the early introduction group versus - 3% in the standard group On Fri, Mar 4, 2016 at 3:39 PM, Kids With Food Allergies <...

Update: We fixed a coding error to correct this section above: However, when the authors evaluated the infants that were able to maintain the study protocol by eating these foods consistently each week, they did find a significant difference in rates of food allergy: 2.4% in the early introduction group versus 7.3% in the standard group

New Study Will Look at Early Signs of Food Allergy and Eczema Risk

KFA News Team ·
A study to identify prenatal and early childhood markers of high risk for food allergy and atopic dermatitis, or eczema, as well as biological pathways that lead to these conditions, has begun. The observational study of children from birth to age 3 years will examine the origins of allergic disease by integrating interdisciplinary analyses of data from more than 260 biological and environmental samples and survey responses from each of 2,500 families.
