The research is inconclusive but . . .

Good information.

Dear Authors,

Please read our story regarding Food Allergies Seen at Birth:

After 28 years, my son Evan still suffers from a true milk allergy, NOT lactose intolerance. If a drop of milk is placed on his wrist, it welts with surface contact. When he swallows cow or goat milk it is highly toxic, with immediate reactions. Soy also was not well tolerated, as strawberry, tomatoes, eggs, watermelon, grapefruit, peanuts, pecans, coconut, etc. He always seemed be vomiting and breaking out in rashes with foods new to him. We didn't always have access to a list of food ingredients. Unfortunately, the vivid allergic reactions happened quite often in restaurants. Hence, we didn't often stay to finish our meals. I don't imagine it was very appetizing for others as well.

That being said, I believe his food allergy is genetic. Our Irish side of the family had the allergies also. I am told many of his cousins (around 30) suffered from the similar foods. They were poor and raised on potatoes and rice. Not much calcium there. I was lucky to find a corn baby formula at the time. Evan was so under weight, I kept him on formula until he was five years old.

I hope some of this information is helpful to someone . . . incase there are any scientist are reading this, perhaps childhood allergies, lack of enzymes, whatever is going on, is inherited. Perhaps allergies skip a generation or so as in our family's case.

If your research studies can determine early in life if these children will be prone to this condition, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you for the information!
