Research finds link between food allergies & autism in children
There is a link between allergic conditions and autism spectrum disorder(ASD) in children.
This has been revealed in a new study that looked into the ratio of autism in children with food, respiratory, and skin allergies..
The researchers studied data of 199,520 children aged from 3-17 years old to understand the connection between allergies and ASD.
The data indicated the food allergy and ASD link in children irrespective of their age, sex, and race or ethnicity. More information about allergies and how they are more common in children with autism can help faster diagnoses of ASD.
Data indicates that there has been a significant increase in the past few years in both ASD and allergies in children. Although the cause behind the ring number of cases is yet to be discovered.
