Yeah-- I saw this.

the upshot (which seems to be getting lost in the mainstream media) is that this study is looking at environmental exposure to PN protein in the first months of life....




which correlates to reported gestational consumption in the mothers.


This is another possible angle on skin as a route to food sensitization. Not "prenatal exposure."

It also doesn't necessarily correlate with ALLERGY... since this was about RAST measurements, not clinical allergy in the children.
