Cheese-rich diet for children could reduce the risk of Allergy
According to a new study, a cheese-rich diet in childhood can protect possibly from allergies and certain diseases. According to the French researchers, further studies are needed to determine to what extent depends on the health effect with the frequency of consumption and the different varieties together.
More and more people suffer from food allergies
Food allergies are on the increase for many years. According to estimates by the German Allergy and asthma Federation (DAAB) are affected in Germany alone, around six million people. In the patients after the consumption of the “wrong” foods symptoms like diarrhea, Nausea, abdominal pain and itchy skin rash. How the DAAB writes on his website, among other things, cow’s milk is the main triggers of food Allergy in infants and children. Nevertheless, a cheese-rich diet in childhood could be prevented, according to French researchers may have allergies.
Cheese consumption at a young age could reduce the risk of
According to a study at the University hospital of Besançon and of the French National Institute for agricultural research (INRA) in Dijon, the consumption of cheese could restrict a young age, the risk for certain allergies and diseases such as Asthma.
As the Portal “Doctissimo” reported to have been in the context of the study, 931 children from birth up to the age of six years, using questionnaires to your lifestyle (environmental factors, dietary habits) and to the development of allergies observed.
According to the scientists showed that, any kind of cheese consumption was associated between the ages of 12 and 18 months, with a significant reduction in the risk of atopic Dermatitis (eczema) and food allergies.
In addition, the risk for allergic Rhinitis (runny nose) and Asthma has been reduced.
“The lower incidence of inflammatory skin diseases and food Allergy is found in children who have benefited from a greater variety and frequency of consumption of cheese, without distinction,” say the researchers.
Further investigation is needed
Further studies are needed to determine to what extent, depends on the health effect with the frequency of eating and the various cheeses together.
In addition, the intestinal flora should be analyzed in order to understand the mechanisms better.
“The goal is to develop long term prevention strategies for Asthma and allergic diseases.”
According to the figures, 34 per cent of the French population, Allergy-free and four million inhabitants had had Asthma.
According to “Doctissimo” increases the frequency of allergic diseases and Asthma in the industrialized countries since the 1980s steadily, mainly due to the decline of microbial contacts from early Childhood. (ad)
