For about 1 in 13 children in the U.S., usually harmless foodstuffs such as milk, eggs and peanuts can send the body ’s natural defenses into overdrive.Symptoms of food allergies can vary widely, but at worst, a systemwide allergic response can lead to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition characterized by a sudden drop in blood pressure and difficulty breathing.Although there are now some preventive measures for food-induced anaphylaxis, there are not yet any long-lasting solutions — treatments capable of locking the immune system into a state of tolerance, so that it doesn’t respond to allergens.Now...

We Can ’t Afford to Wait for COVID-19 Vaccines To Be Rolled Out. Here’s What We Can Do to Curb the Virus Now
On Jan. 7, 2021, the U.S. hit another grim milestone, for the first time recording over 300,000 new cases of COVID-19 and over 4,000 deaths from the infection in one day. Across the country, hospitals and intensive care units are now under enormous strain trying to treat so many sick people. And if a new, more transmissible variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, were to take hold in the U.S. as it has in the U.K., as seems plausible, our health system could pass its breaking point. It’s all too easy to become numb to the toll and accept these daily figures as a new normal while waiting for the vaccine...
