I just joined this website a few days ago. But after reading umpteen postings and finally glad to be able to share some of my concerns and anxiety it strikes me that there are many kids who seem to have food allergies and some kind of learning disability. Has anyone heard of a study or research being done to determine if there is any relationship. My son has severe peanut allergy, multiple food allergies and seasonal pollen allergies. He is in a special ed, self contained classroom for PI children. If anyone has heard anything it would be great to hear. Thanks.
