CONCLUSION: For children, if we add the questionnaire to the existing study, which questions them regarding the symptoms of food allergy, the diagnosis by the physician, and the blood test, we can better investigate the prevalence of food allergies and changing pattern by the year. In adults, we propose that future investigations consisting of the National Health and Nutrition Survey and a comprehensive survey of living conditions should be conducted, because few studies have reported on food allergies.

AbstractEosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic, immune-mediated inflammatory disease with incompletely understood pathogenesis. Though disease manifestations were initially ascribed to a delayed reaction to food allergens, emerging evidence suggests that modifiable host factors and environmental allergen exposure may also play critical roles in the pathogenesis and ongoing manifestations of EoE. As with other atopic diseases, lack of early-life exposure to microbial pathogens leads to an immune tolerance defect and reprograms the commensal gut microflora toward a type 2 T helper (Th2) phenotype; the esophageal microbi...

I met ophthalmologist and corneal specialist Dr. Peter Polack while speaking in Ocala, Florida. He told me that, by having his patients with dry eye—which has increased dramatically over the last 20 years—remove all wheat and grains, he is seeing this condition reverse within weeks, along with all the other health benefits. Unlike other ophthalmologists, who virtually have nothing to do with diet and therefore prescribe the costly drugs Restasis and Xiidra (each cost $500-$550 per month), Dr. Polack rarely has to resort to use of these awful agents. Here Dr. Polack speaks about his phenomenal experience. More a...
