Babies with high levels of IgE at birth are the most effectively protected from these parasites. Under the “natural conditions” of what we now consider to be developing countries, parasite infestations are endemic. In these areas, babies with high levels of IgE are the survivors. However, a baby with a high IgE level in our sanitized Western world is unlikely to encounter intestinal parasites at birth and is consequently the one most likely to develop allergies. The levels of IgE in the baby and child are extremely variable between different individuals.

Over the past decade, research has begun to uncover part of the answer to this important question: the complex series of events known as oral tolerance. The Immune System of the Digestive Tract The immune system associated with the digestive tract is different from that in other parts of the body. It is composed of specialized cells that make up the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). The processing of food through this system allows the uptake of nutrients through the walls of the digestive tract (the intestinal epithelium) without triggering the protective response that would otherwise form a barrier to the foreign materials in food.

At the time very few dietitians were dealing with food allergy because so little was known about how to do it effectively. Scientific research papers on food allergy were few and far between, with perhaps no more than ten good papers a year being published.
