Zeldin: Specifically we found that children, males, and African American individuals were more likely to have food allergy.
Narrator: Dr. Darryl Zeldin is at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and author of the study.
Zeldin: We also found an interesting relation between food allergy and asthma. Compared to people without asthma, individuals with asthma were much more likely to have food allergy.
