    Allergy questions answered on 567 Cape Talk

    Listen to the recent podcast of our Q and A's session on 567 Cape Talk Radio.

    Withholding foods may trigger allergies.

    Current advice is to avoid allergenic foods in infants from high allergy-risk families.  New evidence suggests that late introduction (after 6 months of age) of allergenic foods such as cod fish, hen’s egg, cow’s milk, cereals and potato may actually increase the risk of developing asthma and allergic diseases.  All very confusing to the medical fraternity, who have been advising strict avoidance all these years.  What should we now be advising our high allergy-risk families?
