Sarah Marinos goes in search of the facts F ood allergies appear to be on the rise with more people reporting reactions to a broad range of foods. But how many of these incidents are true food allergies Research from the Journal of the American Medical Association has found that widespread confusion over how to accurately identify food allergies is leading to some people being misdiagnosed with a food allergy when they actually only have a mild food intolerance. Some experts also say food allergy seems to have become a one size fits all phrase to describe irritations caused by various foods. This could also be helping to fuel the upsurge in allergy reports. Allergy versus Food allergy affects about one in 20 children and one in 100 adults according to the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy ASCIA . Food allergies most commonly start in childhood and are the result of an immune reaction to a specific food with a few foods accounting for more than 95 per cent of allergies in Australia. These are cow s milk eggs peanuts and other nuts fish crustaceans and sesame according to Dr Robert Loblay director of the Allergy Unit at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney. Mast cells underneath the lining of the skin gut lungs nose and eyes are filled with chemicals including histamine and food specific antibodies Unnecessary anxiety I frequently see patients in my clinical practice who have a food intolerance but have previously had an inadequate or inappropriate evaluation and been told they have a food allergy says Dr Marc Riedl head of clinical immunology and allergy at the University of California Los Angeles and co author of the study.

39 PHOTOGRAPHY PHOTOLIBRARY WILLIAM ABRANOWICZ ART COMMERCE SNAPPER MEDIA A bout 80 per cent of Australian women are unhappy with the way they look and most of those women know other women who are also unhappy with their bodies according to University of Queensland body image researcher Renee Fletcher. But beauty doesn t come in one size and very few women look like the very thin ideal portrayed in the media says Fletcher. We need to learn to love our body and what it does and to accept the parts of our body we may not be happy with. Maybe you aren t happy with the size of your thighs but few women have the thin thighs of models. Focus on health instead. And some features of your body that you dislike may actually be better for you than the model alternative. because those bits of your body that you re not so proud of might be doing you favour when it comes to your health. By Sarah Marinos LOVE BODY your Big nose Research at the University of Iowa found that big noses reduce the risk of colds. The study found that people with big noses breathe in 6.5 per cent fewer particles such as cold bacteria than people with smaller noses. Consultant ear nose and throat surgeon Dr Nigel Biggs says people with smaller noses have narrower airways can have more diffi culty breathing and suffer blocked nose more easily too. A larger nose has better airways. Someone with smaller nose is more likely to fi nd that the soft cartilage collapses in their nose if they breathe in hard and that impacts on breathing ability he says. gm0811bod. indd 39 9 06 2011 2 18 56 PM
