As Food Allergy Rates Grow, Connected Tech Creates Safety Net

He covers trends in technology as they relate to business. Frank Landman What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img Follow the Puck Food allergy rates have been climbing over the last several years, and today as many as 15 million Americans have food allergies. This is a 50% increase between 1997 and 2011 and school-age children are especially vulnerable, disproportionately suffering from allergies to common foods like milk, wheat, peanuts, and soy. That’s why, in order to decrease the prevalence of life-threatening reactions among young children, researchers are looking to smart technology devices that can detect allergens, alert caregivers, and keep vulnerable individuals safe.Allergies, Intolerances, And Autoimmune ReactionsThough allergies are quite common, many people confuse allergies, food intolerances, and immunological reactions to food – and each is very different. For example, wheat allergies are different from Celiac disease, which is an autoimmune response triggered by the gluten protein found in wheat. In Celiac disease, the body attacks the lining of the colon, viewing the host body as a foreign substance.Allergies are, by definition, an immune response to a harmless substance, explains iCliniq doctor and pediatric allergy specialist Parin Niranjanbhai Parmar. The body attempts to attack that protein by releasing histamines. This can result in anaphylaxis, a multisystem reaction that can cause GI problems, skin reactions, and may result in airway obstruction and death. Intolerances, on the other hand, are often the result of preexisting GI problems, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), lack of certain digestive enzymes, as seen in lactose intolerance, or a sensitivity to certain compounds.Though all of these reactions are biologically different, many of the devices designed to protect against allergies can also detect contamination that can trigger autoimmune reactions or symptoms of food intolerance. As these devices improve, they will likely have a significant customer base.Detecting ContaminantsGluten sensitivity is one of the most digestive complaints today, and many people eliminate gluten to manage unrelated health disorders, such as IBS, ADHD, autism, and skin issues. Unfortunately, 1 in 3 foods marked gluten-free actually contains some gluten contaminants. The risk of cross-contamination is also very high when dining out, even when kitchens take precautions to protect diners.One device that can detect the presence of gluten is the Nima; a device brought to market by MIT researchers in 2016. Nima uses sensor technology to test a small piece of food and within two minutes can identify the presence of gluten. It can help protect patients with Celiac, wheat allergies, and varying levels of gluten sensitivity. A peanut-detecting version of Nima is also in development.Diagnostics In DisguiseOne of the difficulties of living with any serious health condition is that medical equipment can be hard to disguise and unsightly to wear. As children get older, they often reject medical alert bracelets, insulin pumps, and other tools meant to keep them safe. By disguising allergy detection technology as a fashionable accessory, however, tweens and teens are more likely to take advantage of the tools available to them.The Allergy Amulet is a fashionable solution meant to encourage users to test their food for allergens. The device contains test strips and can be worn as a necklace or bracelet, or stored in a special smartphone case and used to prevent accidental exposures. Originally designed to detect peanut proteins in concentrations as low as 1-2 ppm, the device is also being tested on common allergens such as egg, gluten, and shellfish.Fast-Tracking InterventionsFinally, when it comes to food allergies in children, even those who are prepared to use their auto injectors can struggle to self-treat in a timely fashion. And if a trained adult isn’t nearby, anaphylaxis can advance and be deadly. That’s why one of the most important innovations in the allergy world is technology that helps children and teens get help before it’s too late.Harvard, working in partnership with the KeepSmilin4Abbie Foundation, has been researching a way to identify and speed treatment of anaphylaxis by creating a wearable auto injector that can measure early physiological changes and dose patients with epinephrine at the start of a reaction. With the growth of other auto-injection technology, such as that used in diabetes, this technology is primed for the market.Food allergies can cause anxiety, limits on socialization, and even bullying, but advanced tech can minimize the impact such reactions have on children’s lives. Particularly as food allergy rates continue to rise, the importance of on the go testing and intervention will only become more important.

It’s Lalu’s ‘Ram’ vs Paswan’s ‘Lakshman’

by ,

first_img“Pashupati mera Lakshman hain… woh bhi aapka khyal waise hi rakhega jaise main (Pashupati is my Lakshman… he will take care of you like I have),” Lok Janshakti Party chief and eight-time MP from Hajipur Ram Vilas Paswan has been telling people in the constituency while campaigning for his younger brother Pashupati Kumar Paras who is contesting against Mahagathbandhan candidate Shivchandra Ram of the Rashtriya Janata Dal. Citing poor health, Ram Vilas Paswan this time opted out of the Lok Sabha poll and fielded his brother from his traditional Hajipur (reserved) constituency but his ‘Lakshman’ is apparently locked in a tough battle against RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s Shivchandra ‘Ram’.Local vs outsider Mr. Ram is a local from Mahua block of Vaishali district, while Mr. Paras comes from Alauli of Khagaria district. The three Assembly constituencies of Hajipur Lok Sabha seat — Lalganj, Mahnar and Hajipur — are currently held by the NDA while three others — Mahua, Raghopur and Rajapakar — are with the RJD. Lalu Prasad’s two sons — Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav — represent Mahua and Raghopur constituencies respectively, and Mr. Ram is a legislator from Rajapakar. “It’s a battle between Lalu’s Ram and Ram Vilas Paswan’s Lakshman… it’s also a contest between local versus outsider,” said sexagenarian Jagdish Rai of Raghopur.Since 1977, Mr. Paswan has won the Hajipur parliamentary seat eight times. In 2009 LS election, he lost to JD(U)’s Ram Sundar Das. He has done some development work including opening zonal office of Food Corporation of India and East Central Railway zonal HQ. This time, Mr. Paswan is working hard to make his younger brother win the seat. Recently, he gave full-page advertisement in local dailies telling the Hajipur residents that he was “dedicating his younger brother Pashupati Paras for the services of his mother, Hajipur”, and would himself continue to serve them from the other side. He also had outlined the development works he undertook for the constituency.‘Father’s prestige’On the other hand, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav too has been telling voters that his father’s prestige is at stake in Hajipur and they should help Mr. Ram win. Mr Ram, who is said to be close to Mr. Tejashwi and Mr. Lalu, was a Minister in the previous grand alliance government in the State. Mr. Lalu’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav’s Lalu-Rabri Morcha too has fielded Balinder Ram, a local leader. “Shivchandra is the son of the soil, while Paras is not Paswan, and he also comes from Khagaria,” Madho Singh, a retired LIC employee, said in Mahua. He added that a section of the people may vote for the NDA candidate in the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.Caste calculations of the Hajipur seat suggest that the contest between the NDA and the Mahagathbandhan candidates appears to be tough and the victory margin might not be like “what Ram Vilas Paswan has been bagging”. With 3.5 lakh Yadavs, 1 lakh Muslims,1.40 lakh Kushwahas and 1.10 lakh Ravidas, the Mahagathbandhan candidate appears to be on a strong pitch, while the NDA nominee seems to be equally strong with 2.5 lakh EBC (Extremely Backward Caste), 1.40 lakh Bhumihars, 2.5 lakh Rajputs, over 60,000 Brahmins and 1.30 lakh Paswans.last_img read more
