Long life in the 21st Century – 1
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. Iím Joe Balintfy. A new study shows individuals with asthma are more likely to have food allergy. Dr. Darryl Zeldin at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences explains.
Zeldin: Individuals with asthma and symptoms of their asthma that were active were much more likely to have food allergy, and if you had severe asthma severe enough to cause a visit to an emergency room for that asthma within the last year, you were extremely likely to have food allergy. And so the more severe and the more persistent the asthma the more likely you are to have food allergy.
