How time of year babies are born can affect risk of having food allergies
New research suggests the time of year a baby is born could increase the risk of them having food allergies. More than 5 million children have food allergies, and that number is on the rise. Experts believe being born in the fall could especially increase the risk of babies having food allergies. Babies born at different times of the year experience a variety of different factors that can raise or lower the risk of various conditions. A new clinical trial will further study why babies born in the fall tend to have weakened skin barriers.
