New research study seeks hope for children with food allergies


"The four-year, $5.5 million research initiative will look at the impact of environmental and genetic factors on children who suffer with food allergies."

"Food allergy affects 95 percent of our elementary schools today,” says David Bunning [whose foundation is funding the study]. “School nurses report that the disease is as much of a concern as diabetes in terms of what they manage each day. And still it receives only $7 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health -- a mere 1 percent of what is spent on diabetes research each year.”
