I've just been thinking about this... how many of you have children who are fully unvaccinated AND have verified food (or other major) allergies? (And by verified, I mean a serious reaction or bad reactions that were verified by an allergy test done by a doctor.)
I'm just wondering if there is a connection between the ingredients in vaccines and the rising incidence of food allergies.
DD was allergic to soy and dairy (colic from it and a bad rash when I ate it while breastfeeding her when she was a newborn), is completely unvaccinated and seems to be handling all new foods well so far. I reintroduced soy and dairy in my diet months ago and she's shown no reactions.
I had all my vaccines and some reactions to them as a baby and I seem to be sensitive to foods (like I get a raised welt on the roof of my mouth when eating certain fruit, etc.) and I'm highly allergic to everything. I always have a slightly stuffed nose, even when I eat no dairy.
But DD has handled eggs, nuts, fish and other stuff well so far at 14 months. We are going to try raw aged cheeses soon to see if dairy is still a no no. But, either, way,dairy is not a life threatening food allergy for her... it is just a protein intolerance issue, and that is different.
