As a way of preventing a life threatening peanut allergy, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases reversed national health guidelines last month and now recommends that parents introduce foods containing peanut proteins to their infants and children early and often.
To help parents understand the new recommendations for preventing a peanut allergy, Dr. Shahzad Mustafa, MD, Medical Advisory Board Chair of the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT) and a leading allergist, discusses the guidelines in the following video.
Additional resources and more information available at www.PeanutAllergyFacts.org
Below are the current recommendations for introducing peanut foods to infants:
- Guideline 1 (severe eczema or egg allergy or both) – introduce age-appropriate peanut foods as early as 4-6 months, after (1) introduction of other solid foods and (2) evaluation with sIgE blood test or skin prick test (SPT) or both. Infants in this category should see their healthcare provider before introducing peanut foods. Depending on the results of the sIgE and/or SPT, peanut foods should be introduced under supervision by a knowledgeable healthcare provider or at home.
- Guideline 2 (mild to moderate eczema) – introduce peanut foods around 6 months of age, in accordance with family preferences and cultural practices. Age-appropriate peanut foods can be introduced at home without an in-office evaluation by a healthcare provider, unless the infant’s healthcare provider or caregiver prefer in evaluation or supervised feeding or both.
- Guideline 3 (no eczema or food allergy) – freely introduce age-appropriate peanut containing foods together with other solid foods and in accordance with family preferences and cultural practices.
Introducing peanut foods to infants is easy and can be done by:
- Feeding the infant 21 pieces of Bamba or similar peanut puff product (either as is or softened with 4-6 tsp of water)
- Mixing 2 tsp of peanut butter into 2-3 tsp of hot water (allow to cool before feeding)
- Mixing 2 tsp peanut butter into 2-3 Tbsp previously tolerated pureed fruit or vegetables

Decluttering the Home for the Holidays
The holidays are a time for enjoying friends and family in the home and also finding somewhere to hide all the clutter before everyone arrives. One study* found disorganization can consume 15-20 percent of the average home’s annual budget through rebuying misplaced items, rush charges and late fees.
Not only can cleaning and organizing the home be easy, but according to organizing expert, Donna Smallin Kuper, many unwanted and unused items around the home are worth something and can easily be sold.

Recipes and Tips for Helping Those with Swallowing Disorders
Jennifer Baquet, MA, CCC-SLP, is a senior speech-language pathologist who serves residents at Amsterdam Nursing Home in New York City shares creative approaches to helping those with swallowing disorders with meals and stay hydrated with tasty recipes, like popsicles, soups and other drinks, during the hot summer months.
For the 18 million Americans with dysphagia, a swallowing disorder, every meal and sip of water can feel like drowning. The main risk is aspiration, or inhaling food/liquid into the airway and lungs, which can cause pneumonia. These individuals must rely on thickened liquids, but options are limited and often unappealing. As a result, more than 200,000 short-term hospital stay patients with dysphagia are discharged with a primary diagnosis of dehydration annually.

Research Study: Relationship Between Body Fat, Body Mass Index and Mortality
New study examines the associations of body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage (separately and together) with mortality.
Philadelphia, March 07, 2016 -- Keeping body fat low as you age is more important than achieving a low number on the scale, according to an article published in Annals of Internal Medicine. Both low body mass index (BMI), a measure of a person’s weight in relation to height, and high body fat percentage are independently associated with increased risk for death.
Recent studies have shown an association between mild obesity (as measured by BMI) and lower mortality risk. Known as the “obesity paradox,” these findings have been the source of debate, as physicians are advised to counsel obese patients to lose weight to decrease their risk for chronic conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease.
Because BMI is an imperfect measure of body fat, researchers hypothesized that greater body fat percentage, independent of BMI, would be associated with increased mortality.
They measured body fat using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and BMI for 50,000 men and women over the age of 40 to examine associations between BMI and percent fat – alone and in combination – with mortality. They found that having a higher percent body fat was independently associated with reduced survival, as was having a low BMI.
These finding suggest that body composition, not just weight, needs to be considered when assessing a patient’s health and risk of death. The authors say that in some people, higher BMI may actually reflect non-fat tissue such as muscle.

When it comes to death risk, how much fat you carry may be more important than the number on the scale. Investigator, Dr. Bill Leslie, explains the results of his research on body fat, body mass index (BMI) and mortality published in Annals of Internal Medicine.
