    Don't think this one has been linked to, but I found it interesting.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/0/explosion-food-allergies-behind-boom/

    (In the Saturday Telegraph Magazine 8th February, in case someone wants to look it up at their local library or whatever)

    Also, there seem to be some familiar patterns emerging:

    A method of preventing food allergies ... "can be deployed today.
    "The problem is ... that an 'unquestioned, non-science-based dogma' elsewhere in the British medical establishment is preventing it from being rolled out."

    Early introduction of peanut into the diet is 'a very powerful strategy to prevent peanut and egg allergy ...' Except 'we're not employing it at the moment.'
    "Government advice for feeding newborn babies has remained more or less unchanged since 2002".

    The current nutrition guidelines are described as 'plucked from the air.'

    'America has changed its guidelines. The UK is lagging behind.'

    I have a feeling I've heard this before somewhere ...
