Gluten intolerance a significant risk factor
Some foods that are high in gluten can trigger reactions such as whey and can interfere with function of the pancreas. A dietary intervention may help reduce these symptoms. While you can safely claim that any food that has been tested for ingredients such as gluten isn't harmful to you and the food is labeled as "free of gluten," there have been numerous occasions where consumer representatives have mislabeled food. These mislabeling, however, cannot protect consumers. Sometimes, consumer representatives try to prevent consumers from recognizing that there is a risk to the health or the company. Consumer advocates should not accept these claims, and if consumers don't know or see any such mislabeling before they buy a product, they have a responsibility to contact their health care provider or their local FDA office within 2 weeks of receiving a purchase. FDA inspectors have determined that foods labeled as "free" don't qualify as "unsafe and potentially dangerous" products. Some participants, who include children, may have been breastfed during gestation, according to the study. The authors note: "Even before the use of lactation equipment in women, most men showed an increased risk for breast milk allergy by consuming a variety of non-starch feeding sources during the first six months of life (eg, bread, milk, cereal, meat, fish, dairy foods, fruits and vegetables)." The participants tested an intervention that included a dairy feeding regimen that consisted of both milk, and butter. "Milk and soy milk were often the main meal sources for people who were breastfeeding," the authors report. "This evidence adds credibility to the recommendation that milk and soy have an important role in the development of infant milk allergy." For those in the milk feeding population, an increased risk of a potentially fatal allergic reaction should avoid dairy feeding. But the researchers emphasize that breastfeeding may play a role in the development of a milk allergy in the future, at large: While lactation could reduce the risk of an adverse event described above in certain women, and potentially be considered, the implications of an infant feeding regimen in this age range are unknown. The authors note that a milk-feeding intervention should not be considered a replacement for breastfeeding, but rather is a step that may serve as an indication that dairy and dairy products may be important sources of milk for early development.
