Lactose, Gluten, Fructose & Co. – the list of food intolerances for a few years longer. Many people have problems with certain content. The increase, however, lies not in our genes, experts have now found want.
Cathryn Nagler and her colleagues from the University of Chicago confirm that in a Nature-study: The number of people who do not develop suddenly a food intolerance, even though they had this as a child, rises higher and higher.
Fruit, vegetables, and nuts lead the list of allergenic foods in adults. In children, there are more milk, eggs, wheat, and also nuts. Who thinks now, that a sudden incompatibility with our genes together, however, is wrong.
Environmental factors change the bacteria
First of all, an intolerance may occur even if only temporarily. It remains, however, are not our genes fault. This is because these do not change according to the experts so quickly. A sudden intolerance could come from a cross-Allergy to other environmental influences. As the scientists write, alter our Microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body. A particular variety of this is responsible for whether we develop allergies or not.
Antibiotics in food and water
Especially antibiotics and the low intake of dietary fiber the Microbiome to influence substances. “Even if you avoid antibiotics personally, you are as a drug is quite stable and in more food to us in our water supply than one would like to know. The loss of fiber from the diet has been fairly observed-resistant,“ says Nagler to Vice. Certain intestinal bacteria, however, require dietary fiber to the diet. You don’t get this, “starving to death” and other bacteria can grow more. As a result, the Microbiome is changing, and allergies can develop.
