Do you or a loved one suffer from a food allergy?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute.  Milk, eggs, and peanuts are some of the most common allergies.  New research from Boston Children's Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston found a correlation between gut bacteria and food allergies.  Turns out, when certain strains of bacteria are missing, a person is more likely to have a certain food allergy.  Making these bacteria essential for proper digestion.  They work by triggering T-cells in the immune system and altering their state, so that they don’t cause an immune reaction to that particular food.  Private companies are working on bacteria compositions for human trials—making food allergy treatments possible in as soon as 5 years.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
