Food Allergies - January 19,2011

The Journal of the American Medical Association

Common Allergic Foods A food allergy is an adverse immune response to a food. Your immune system makes antibodies to protect you from germs and disease, but it may also sometimes make antibodies to certain food proteins. Some of these antibodies (called IgE) are known to be associated with allergic reactions. When that happens, your immune system treats the food as if it were a harmful substance, resulting in an allergic reaction. The proportion of people with food allergies is not known with precision because of differing definitions, but it is between 2% and 10% and is more common in children than adults. Become one of Dr. Hyman's patients and have exclusive access to dozens of current health articles.

Mark Hyman, MD, is the parent of a child with tuberous sclerosis -- a condition that affects 50,000 people in the U.S. and causes tumors to form in the kidneys, eyes, brain, liver, and lungs, as well as seizures, autism, and learning disabilities. As such, he wants to see new research, better drugs and, ultimately, a cure -- and he knows all three take money. So seven years ago, the Los Angeles-based physician came up with an idea that made him smile. "I launched Comedy for a Cure," says Hyman, which takes place every year in cities across the country.

To make the event even funnier (and even more successful) Hyman enlisted his favorite patient funny lady Patricia Heaton of Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle fame. The actress was MC at the Laugh Factory that first year and has donated her time to the cause ever since. To date their efforts have raised $2.5 million for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. Those funds have kick-started research for genetic testing during pregnancy; sponsored a clinical trial for a new drug that may prevent and even halt tumor growth and seizures; and created the first national TS database, which centralizes information on TS patients. Progress like this is no joke.
