A gut microbe that stops food allergies

A class of bacteria commonly found in the guts of people—and rodents—appears to keep mice safe from food allergies, a study suggests. The same bacteria are among those reduced by antibiotic use in early childhood.

My eldest nephew had surgery during his first week of life, and because he was so little, they left tubes in him, etc...until he got older (1 year) in order to complete the surgery. 

Thank God for his surgeon, who did an excellent job and made it so he has no issues from his initial complications.

However, that first year of life he was on antibiotics all the time...due to the tubes, etc.

He is now allergic to peanuts, latex, cats, etc.

Nobody else in the family is....neither parent, nor any of his siblings. 
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
