Health: Food Allergies, The New American Obsession
Self-Diagnosis Becoming All Too Common in American Households with Many
Eliminating Nutrient Rich Foods Such as Milk Without Seeking Medical Advice
NEW YORK, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- STORY SUMMARY: THIS IS A MULTIVU REPORT BROUGHT TO YOU BY GOT MILK? "YOU KNOW HOW MANY FOOD ALLERGIES YOU HAVE? SEVENTY-TWO FOOD ALLERGIES!" "OH MY!" EIGHT YEAR-OLD CAITLIN'S MEDICAL MYSTERY IS FINALLY DIAGNOSED! FOOD ALLERGIES NEARLY KILLED HER. FOR YEARS HER FAMILY WAS IN THE DARK, SWITCHING MEDICINE, FOOD AND DOCTORS UNTIL THEY FOUND ALLERGIST STUART EPSTEIN. "Don't self-treat. Determine if it's truly an allergy to food, not an intolerance. An allergy is a specific condition that involves immune response. And, an intolerance, like lactose intolerance, is very rare." YET A NEW SURVEY FINDS MOST PARENTS MISTAKENLY BLAME MILK FOR BOTH, REMOVING IT FROM THEIR CHILD'S DIET WITHOUT ASKING A DOCTOR FIRST. THAT CAN DEPRIVE KIDS OF THE BEST NATURAL
SOURCE OF BONE-BUILDING CALCIUM. IF YOU'RE REALLY LACTOSE INTOLERANT, ONE ANSWER IS LACTOSE-FREE MILK, WITH THE SAME HEALTH BENEFITS AS WHOLE, SKIM AND LOW-FAT. THE BEST ADVICE? SEE A DOCTOR.
