Have you already noticed a difference in your allergy symptoms this year? Global warming could be to blame. Researchers at National Jewish Health say global warming is causing plants to grow bigger and pollinate earlier.
New recommendations from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology suggest carefully introducing highly allergenic foods to children 4-6 months of age. “If you introduce them early, it may actually prevent food allergy," says National Jewish Health pediatric allergist Dr. David Fleischer.
“It was absolute terror. He started wheezing, and he passed out,”
recalls mother Kristy Littauer. Kristy and her husband, Fred, brought
their son Jack to National Jewish Health to piece together the puzzle of
how to keep him safe around food. By the time they left, the Littauers
felt like a cloud had been lifted.
