Ear-InfectionA study appearing in Pediatric News (1991;25(2)) looked at the link between hidden food sensitivity and chronic ear infections. Researchers at Georgetown University tested over 100 children with chronic ear infections and found that 78% of them had at least one food sensitivity. The offending food was identified and eliminated for 11 weeks. The elimination diets were successful in resolving the ear infections in 70 of the 81 of the children with food sensitivity. Reintroducing the offending food into the diet triggered a relapse in 66% of the children.
