ABC Science: "Peanut allergy rate doubles despite avoidance"

by frances 28. February 2009 10:01
    
This Science report would be an interesting WebQuest hook for students studying Home Economics, Family and Consumer Science, Food Studies, or Biology!
    
Dr. Mullins said: "it adds to growing evidence that guidelines promoting peanut avoidance in young diets may be counterproductive....Among the factors that have been discounted are a mother's diet during pregnancy and breastfeeding, genetically modified food, additives and preservatives in food....There is also some evidence emerging that Vitamin D deficiency may play a role."

Teachers would need to think about how they would develop a WebQuest around this report and also research conducted in the UK. It could also be developed for students in Tertiary study studying to be Dietitians!
