Milk, peanut allergies increase children’s risk for severe allergic reactions

Quote:
Angela Tsuang, MD, of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and colleagues followed for 2 years 126 children with a diagnosed food allergy.

Overall, 38% of study participants had an allergic reaction during the trial period. Most reactions were caused by milk (39%), peanuts (16%), eggs (8.2%) and tree nuts (6%). Researchers found that children who were exposed to milk were more likely to experience an allergic reaction. Severe allergic reactions (44%) were associated with milk and peanuts. Ingestion caused 83% of reactions, but the amount eaten did not result in a difference of reaction severity.
