Does Season Of Birth Cause Certain Food Allergies?

In a study published by The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, researchers investigated the correlation between season of birth and food allergies. The cohort consisted of African-American children ages 5 to 8, and was composed primarily of males in Northern latitudes. The results showed that winter birth did in fact influence sensitivity to egg, peanut, and soy allergens, supporting past evidence from other studies, which link food allergies and winter birth in caucasian children.
