Holidays and the festive season could be stressful for parents, as there are so many varieties of food and sweets all around, and it is difficult to monitor children's diet and keep them away from allergens. However, it may come as a relief for parents to know that in a new study conducted at National Jewish Health in Denver, doctors are working towards an approach to treating food allergies. In their study, children are exposed to the foods that usually make them sick, Medical Xpress reports.

The recent surge in food allergies could be due to a byproduct of chemicals used to help purify water, a new study claims. The study found that people exposed to high levels of dichlorophenols are more likely to get food allergies. Dichlorophenols are produced when chlorine is added to water to make it clean and get rid of bugs.
