A recent study done by JAMA pediatrics showed that moms who eat more nuts are less likely to have children who are allergic to nuts. The study followed over 8,000 children who born in the early 90’s and the mothers who reported their diets before and after pregnancy. In 2009 140 of the people studied had developed allergies to peanuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios, and macadamia nuts.

The researchers concluded that as long as the mothers were not already allergic to nuts that eating five or more servings throughout the week helped the kids develop a higher tolerance to nut allergies. These findings are particularly interesting to health advocates and pediatricians due increase of peanut allergies in American children in recent years. The percentage of children that have peanut allergies has tripled over the last ten years, according to the study.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published an article last April showing that eating nuts does not cause weight gain or increase the waist line and nuts contain good fibers, unsaturated fats, vitamins, and minerals, which are important things in a good daily diet. The New England Journal of Medicine found that eating nuts increases life expectancy and reduces the chances of getting cancer or cardiovascular disorders later in life.

    Be careful. Would you take the risk of a miscarriage? If a
    baby is genetically predisposed to a severe peanut allergy might there be risk
    of a miscarriage due to severe reaction within the fetus itself prior to birth?
    Where is this addressed? It should be.
