A plant-based diet (see also here) may reduce the risk of allergies. Components in meat that may trigger allergic reactions include antibiotics and parasitic fish worms. Dairy has been linked to the recurrence of canker sores, and cow’s milk is a leading allergen.
Though monosodium glutamate does not appear to trigger traditional allergic reactions (update here), certain artificial colorings might due to the presence of cochineal, a red coloring derived from insects. Common household chemicals may also cause allergy-related diseases.
There is no evidence that allergies to peanuts are triggered in the fetus by pregnant women consuming peanuts.
