Mice fed more fiber have less severe food allergies
The development of food allergies in mice can be linked to what their gut bacteria are being fed, reports a study in Cell Reports. Rodents that received a diet with average calories, sugar, and fiber content had more severe peanut allergies than those that received a high-fiber diet. The researchers show that gut bacteria release a specific fatty acid in response to fiber intake, which eventually impacts allergic responses via changes to the immune system. (2016-06-21)
