Teach a man to fish

Pediatric Allergy and Immunology is something I never knew would fascinate me and in all likelihood it wouldn’t have if my son didn’t have an IgA Deficiency. But he does and so I read and learn and grow.

A study was recently done on 460 children living in Minorca, a Spanish island in the Mediterranean. No special diet was required, they were just looked after and wrote a food diary.

The results of the study are pretty interesting. Kids who ate the most tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, green beans, and zucchini were 62% least likely to have asthma or wheezing. Kids who ate more than 60 grams of fish per day were 57% less likely to test positive for allergies.

There you have it, Brian, we’re having fish tonight.
