Quite often we come to hear stories about kids getting allergic to eggs. Now, since eggs are a good source of protein, how can a mum keep it away from a child? But, if you have a pet in the house, then your infant can be saved from egg allergies.
According to a recent research, about 10.8% of the infants in Victoria succumb to egg allergies in a family with no siblings and with no pets. The research was conducted by researchers of the Murdoch Children's Research Institute.
The lead researcher, Jennifer Koplin was reported saying, "If the immune system doesn't get this exposure, we think it responds inappropriately to things that are completely harmless, in this case foods". It is believed that the migrant families often develop allergies as they are not immune to the climate and environment.
The findings of the researchers have been published in the journal called Allergy. For the study, the researchers studied thousands of Victorian infants. It is hoped that the findings will help in preventing food allergies. However, further studies are required to be conducted to gauge as to how pets and siblings can help an infant in suppressing allergies.
