A new study has linked African ancestry to an increased risk of childhood peanut allergies.
Researchers at Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital examined the genetic code of a group of African American children.
They found with every 10-percent increase of African ancestry ... there was a 25-percent increase in the likelihood of a peanut allergy.
African heritage was also associated with more allergies to milk, eggs and several other foods.
