Show Notes

This Week In Wellness a study of 700 Geelong infants has shown that those whose dummies (or pacifiers) were sterilised or otherwise cleaned at 6 months of age were more likely to have a food allergy by 12 months of age.

The Barwon Infant Study, published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, showed that babies whose dummies were clean with antiseptic were more likely to develop food allergies and those for whom the antiseptic use was “persistent and repeated” even more so.
