    Pecans Declared ‘Heart Healthy’; Expectant Mothers Should Eat Nuts

    One of our daughters is pregnant again; she has an eight-year-old. She’s concerned about diet, fearing an allergic reaction to nuts in general may cause an allergic baby.
    Now researchers have published a report online in JAMA Pediatrics which may dispel this notion and gives impetus for non-allergic expectant mothers to increase their nut intake. Researchers studied over 8,000 non-allergic mothers and after the birth of their babies found only 140 cases of peanut or tree nut allergies. (Peanut and treenut allergy rates have tripled among youth between 1997 and 2010. Now about 1.4 percent of children have a peanut allergy.)
