Egg and Milk Allergy Lead to Peanut Allergy?

A recent study involving 500 infants seems to show a link between early milk and egg allergy to later development of peanut allergy.

The Consortium of Food Allergy Research (CoFAR), a major food allergy research program supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducted the study and plans to follow the infants to age 5.

In light of this finding, researchers recommend parents of milk and egg allergic children speak to their doctor, or consult an allergist before introducing peanut in the diet.

Check out the full report. Interesting, huh?
