New research claims that children conceived in late winter or early spring are more at risk of suffering food allergies. It's explained by the fact that when a baby is about 11 weeks old (in April or May)pregnant women are exposed to high levels of tree pollen that can be connected to a higher rate of allergies to foods such as milk and eggs as 11 weeks is the time when babies are only beginning to develop antibodies.

Researchers also say that low levels of vitamin D in the mother following the winter could play a part in reducing the immune defenses of the unborn child. The babies most affected will be born around October, November.

It has been revealed that the overall risk of being sensitive to milk and eggs was three times higher when babies reached 11 weeks in the womb around April and May compared with December and January.

Dr Elaine Vickers (the UK) said: ‘Research like this is gradually increasing our understanding of how a child’s immune system develops in the womb and during their first years of life. As this understanding grows, so does the possibility of developing new treatments or other interventions that can alter the balance of a child’s immune system and reduce their allergy risk.’

is there anybody here born in October/November? are you allergic to milk or eggs?
