Black male children nearly twice the risk of food allergy

Based on their study, the researchers estimated that 2.55 percent of the universal population has food allergic reaction, most often to shrimp and peanuts. The national survey included 8 thousand plus people from babies to seniors who tested positive for the allergen antibody connected to possible issues with eggs, milk, peanuts and shrimp. The sensitivity level to these potential food allergens was then tested the entire participants.

Males and children had nearly twice the risk for food allergy as others, blacks had tripled the risk and black children were (4x) times more likely to have food allergies.
