Allergy of Children
To Milk Blamed for
Obscure Illnesses
By Thomas R. Henry
Star Staff Corrmspondmnt
ATLANTIC CITY, June 12.—
Allergy to milk is a common cause
of a wide variety of obscure Illnesses
in children.
Evidence of this situation, hitherto
hardly recognized in medical prac
tice, was presented before the Amer
ican Medical Association here yes
terday by Dr.‘ Preston A. McLendon, j
Washington child specialist, and his j
associate, Dr. Dorothy S. Jaeger-Lee. |
The difficulties due to this allergy, j
they reported, range all the way from j
severe colic and bowel irregularities!
in infants to underweight, pallor,
foul breath, frequent colds, easy
fatigue, poor school progress and
irritability in slightly older children.
Milk Not Held Essential.
Such an allergy, they believe, acts
in almost precisely the same way as
the abnormal sensitivities due to in
haling certain pollens or dust, but
it often is more generalized in its
effect.
It may be due to almost any food
eaten by the child, in the experience
of the two Washington doctors.
However, cow’s milk Is the most
frequent offender. Some of the chil
dren, they found, displayed the
whole list of symptoms over a con
siderable period, but these promptly
disappeared when milk was removed
from the diet.
They denied that milk, per se, is
essential for the balanced diet.
Its absence from the diet, Dr. Me-'
Lendon said, “In our experience does'
not lower the blood calcium or phos-:
phorus. Neither has it, in cases |
observed over a period of years, j
resulted in Increased dental cares.
Substitutes Can Be Made.
For Infants they reported, either
mother's milk or cow or goat milk
can be replaced by synthetic prepa
rations such as come from soy beans.
The difficulty is that these often
contain additional substances such
as yeast or certain vitamin prepa
rations which may themselves bring
allergic sensitiveness.
I nsome cases they found, It is
possible to desensitize the patients,
but there is a tendency for allergy
to return in later years. They
dealt harshly with many of the
"balanced diet" preparations for
children which are widely adver
tised. For example. Dr. McLendon
pointed out, when it became popu
lar to irradiate milk with ultra
violet light to increase its vitamin
D content, the process caused ob
scure chemical changes which re
sulted in many cases of colic.
Food Not Blamed.
Said Dr. McLendon: “Constipa- j,
tion in infants and children always;
has been a field for innumerable;
remedies. Laxative ads adorn the
pages of magazines and newspapers
and Jam our radios. Numerous ar
ticles appear in medical Journals
giving advice on balanced diets,
roughage, etc. None have appeared,
so far, as I know, in which a food
was blamed. And yet in any group
of children under usual feeding re
gimes there are a number who per
sistently eat an unbalanced diet but
do not suffer from constipation. On
the other hand a part of this group
may enjoy an ideally balanced diet i
and yet require laxatives or en-1
emas.”
Skin tests such as are used to de- j
tect respiratory allergies, the two
doctors reported, have little value in;
diagnosing food sensitivities. These
must be determined largely by a:
process of elimination. There is a]
symptom complex, however, by;
means of which the difficulty may;
be laid to something in the diet.;
Colds and bouts of high tempera- i
ture, for example, tend to run in
cycles and there are often charac
teristic changes in the blood.
