According to the American Academy of Allergy and Immunology, a child’s chance of developing allergies is 25% if one parent has allergies and 66% if both parents have allergies. A placebo-controlled study appearing in Acta Pediatrica (June 1, 2009; [Epub ahead of print]) looked at 145 pregnant women who either had allergies themselves or the husband or previous child had allergies. The women were randomly selected to either receive 1.6 g of EPA and 1.1 g of DHA (fish oil) or a placebo from the final trimester of their pregnancy until the third or fourth month of the newborn’s life (the mothers all breastfed their children). In those supplemented with the fish oil the prevalence of allergies or eczema was significantly lower than they were for the placebo group.
