Researchers Used Natural Gut Bacteria to Prevent--and Reverse--Food Allergies ...

•, By Good News Network

In this exciting new study, researchers say they have identified a kind of bacteria in the human infant gut that can prevent food allergies – and their discovery has led to a new treatment that could reverse the condition altogether.

Every three minutes, a food-related allergic reaction sends someone to the emergency room in the U.S. Currently, the only way to prevent a reaction is for people with food allergies to completely avoid the food to which they are allergic.

Researchers are actively seeking new treatments to prevent or reverse food allergies in patients; and these new insights into the microbiome – the complex ecosystem of microorganisms that live in the gut and other body sites – have suggested that an altered gut microbiome may play a pivotal role in the development of food allergies.
