Autism and food allergies University of Iowa

The university of Iowa did an analysis of the US National Health Interview Survey data from 1997 to 20161. They came out with a correlation between autism and food allergies.

The data is interview based, so if someone thought they had a food allergy they mentioned it. Not a clinical result but may warrant further investigation.
