New treatments for Overcoming food allergies
Until recently, the only treatment for food allergy was excluded from the diet of the allergen in question. Today, there are other alternatives whose purpose is to make the child finish tolerate food that causes the reaction.
The exclusion diet
About 7-8 percent of children have some form of food allergy. And when sitting at the table, we are forbidden foods that will provoke reaction, but also all those which can be contained. Hence, the so-called exclusion diet is often difficult to perform. The list of foods that can be found in varying amounts of milk is huge: from candy or sausage biscuits and ice cream cakes through. This is just one example. But the same could be said of egg or other allergens that complicate the daily lives of those who can not swallow and often are unable to notice his presence in the products they will consume. The labeling can hide them under generic names like “protein”, “fats” or “caseinates.” But often are not components but also pollutants that reach varying amounts and do not appear in the detailed composition. The problem is that its intake, however small the amount, can result in allergic patients from mild rashes to severe reactions such as anaphylactic shock seriously endanger his life. That is, the diet is not without significant risks despite the great care that you can have in buying and cooking.
Genetic analysis predicts susceptibility to heart attacks and cancer The investigation was conducted by a university professor of 40 years that sequenced his own genome and discovered how the future was a high risk of dying from a heart attack and prostate cancer.
The analysis of a person’s genes can help predict the propensity to die from cancer or suffer a heart attack, released the magazine “The Lancet” in its latest issue.
During the study of their genes by experts from Stanford University found that the man has variants in three genes associated with sudden cardiac death, the TMEM43, DSP and MYBPC3.
The volunteer has a family history of sudden death, as a distant cousin died at age 19 of a heart attack while sleeping.
