We have just been updated that leading researchers now say they plan to conduct human trials testing to see whether an increase in dietary fiber could similarly prevent allergies in infants and young children.
Eating a high-fibre diet changes bacteria in the gut to protect against food allergies, the research showed.
This good gut bacteria helps the immune system resist allergies through the break down of fibre in short-chain fatty acids – opening up the potential for new drug therapy for those with food allergies.
Almost three per cent of children have a peanut allergy and severe reactions to eating the food can cause anaphylaxis, which can lead to death’
