Childhood Food Allergies (UK 1 in 14) – huge recent increase (low vitamin D) - Dec 2018

Why the world is becoming more allergic to food

BBC Dec 2018

  • “Food allergy now affects about 7% of children in the UK and 9% of those in Australia, for example.”
  • “For example, there was a five-fold increase in peanut allergies in the UK between 1995 and 2016.”
  • “One study found 9% of Australian one-year-olds had an egg allergy, while 3% were allergic to peanuts.”
  • “Migrants appear to show a higher prevalence of asthma and food allergy in their adopted country compared to their country of origin, further illustrating the importance of environmental factors.”
    • Note: Migrants often have dark skin and thus lower levels of vitamin D
  • “Another idea is that vitamin D can help our immune system develop a healthy response, making us less susceptible to allergies. Most populations around the world do not get enough vitamin D for several reasons, including spending less time in the sun. In the US, the rate of vitamin D deficiency is thought to have almost doubled in just over a decade.”
