Are some probiotics dangerous? I've heard that Bacillus subtilis, a soil-based probiotic, can cause infections.
Is quercetin helpful for a specific condition? I see it as an ingredient in several different types of supplements.
I developed a rash after taking an iron supplement and then realized the supplement contained soy, to which I am allergic. Can your reports help me avoid soy and other allergens in supplements?
Is ingesting colloidal silver helpful for any condition and is it safe to use? I'm seeing it promoted for many applications.

Vitamin D and Allergy?
Recent analyses of data from thousands of individuals across the U.S. show an association between serum vitamin D levels and certain allergies. The association was found in children and adolescents for 11 different allergens, but no association was found in older individuals.

Fish Oil During Pregnancy Reduces Allergy in Infants
Last year we reported important findings from a study of fish oil given to pregnant women. A further analysis of that study shows another benefit of daily fish oil for pregnant women -- their babies have nearly a 40% lower risk of egg allergies. A lower risk of eczema was also found, although this association did not hold after adjusting the data for certain factors. See the update to the Fish Oil Supplements Review, which includes details on this study, the type and amount of fish oil taken, and our latest product tests.
