Allergies type I and type IV are said to be involved in AD. However, there is no point explaining the different types of allergies. The problem is, why are allergic diseases such as AD, asthma, and hay fever becoming so common. This problem has risen in the last 20 to 30 years. When I was a med student, my dermatology textbook had only a few lines about Atopic Dermatitis. Even when I was in elementary school, there were no kids with AD, and even if kids were snivelly they would run around during recess. There is no way that there could be a DNA alteration that could change our bodies.
Generally, allergic reactions happen because there is some abnormality on the cell membrane. Linoleic acid, commonly found in vegetable oil, will metabolize arachiodonic acid, which increases the amount of phosphatide, a lipid that constructs the cell membrane. This not an abnormality of the genes, so unless there are extreme circumstances, patients can recover in at least 3 to 4 weeks, and at most 6 months. Basically, it is a curable problem (unlike cancer, which is hard to cure with contemporary medicine since it is an abnormality in the gene). All you need to do is remove the excess linoleic acid and undigested protein, which can be done easily. What makes it seem hard are clueless doctors who argue not to use steroids while not knowing anything about dietetics, as well as the irresponsible media which blindly follows these doctors, and AD Businessmen who take advantage of this situation.
( Some unknowledgeable doctors who half-heartedly call for natural treatment recommend brown rice. This may be helpful for other diseases, but I will explain later how it is actually bad for AD patients to eat brown rice.)
Linoleic acid is an unsaturated fatty acid that can be found in many vegetable oils such as safflower oil, sunflower oil, soy oil, corn oil, cotton seed oil, sesame oil, earthnut oil, rice bran oil, wheat germ oil, evening primrose oil, and grape seed oil. Linoleic acid has been heavily consumed after it was said that it lowered cholesterol. Starting from the 1960s, instead of using animal fat, there was an effort, called the “linoleic acid myth”, to use vegetable oil and margarine. This myth, detailed by a research in Finland in 1991, had supposedly died out. However, even to this day people believe in this myth, and William Lands, a specialist in lipid nutrition from the National Institute of Health in America, recommends that people in developed nations should take more than 10 times the required amount. Although Japanese do not go as overboard, they still take in 5 times the required amount of 2 grams per day.
Also, the amount of animal protein Japanese people take in has been increasing dramatically over the past 50 years, which also leads to increases of the intake of arachidonic acid. For example, in 1955 the average intake of animal protein was 22.3 grams, while in 1979 the average was 39.2 grams, and in 2002 the average was 45.9 grams, more than double the amount 50 years ago. If the animal protein came from fish, there wouldn’t be a problem, but since the animal protein taken in came from beef, pork, lamb, and chicken as well, there is a serious problem. Particularly, in recent days the cheaper prices of pork and beef are prompting people to consume more of these than fish.
So, what are linoleic acid and arachidonic acid? Why are these bad? Before I explain these questions, I will need to explain about inflammations and eicosanoids. This gets a bit technical, so you can skip sections 2, 3, 4, and 5 and go straight to section 6 “Take Omega 3!”.
