Race linked to childhood food allergies, not environmental allergies

Research conducted at Henry Ford Hospital shows that race and possibly genetics play a role in children’s sensitivity to developing allergies.Researchers found: African-American children were sensitized to at least one food allergen three times more often than Caucasian children. African-American children with one allergic parent were sensitized to an environmental allergen twice as often as African-American children without an allergic parent.
