Babies Conceived In Spring More Likely To Get Food Allergies

A new study finds babies who were conceived in early Spring may be more likely to develop food allergies.

Researchers in Finland studied almost 6,000 children and found babies who spent the first trimester in the womb during spring months had an increased chance of developing allergies to foods like eggs and milk.

Experts believe fetuses under 11 weeks do not have antibodies to allergens that peak during April and May.
