I don't believe that just me eating them caused her to be allergic, I believe there was something that made her more susceptible and then perhaps me eating so many caused that particular allergy in her....I don't know, maybe it is just guilt but I do believe that I have done something to cause her to be more susceptible, even though doctors constantly tell me it was nothing I have done. They can't prove what causes allergies yet so there's no way they can 100% guarantee it was nothing I have done.

I'm sorry you feel that way..,. I guess I can only try to say that cashews are healthy so it's ironic you are having to feel guilty about eating something healthy and having it inadvertently *possibly* triggered an allergy but that people who eat maccas etc the whole way through never have to experience these feelings at all! Sorry it's the best I can come up with... Just bad luck however it happened.
I guess the thing is that no matter how many nuts you did or did not eat and how early introduced solids etc, it's still only a very small percentage of people getting the allergies so in the context of this thread we are going to struggle to find any kind of pattern! I agree with the person who said it would be environmental and genetic triggers and also along with a good dose of bad luck

As it is correlational it could be any number of confounding variables that contribute to the findings. In stats its called "tertium quid" - which means that a third thing could cause the event rather than the two things the researchers are measuring.
It is only one study and sounds like they have just found a link, but as mentioned it could be any number of things causing the results - even age for example. I havent had a look at the study - I might have a read over lunch. I usually find the studies are often not as conclusive as articles like to state they are.
It is a bit confusing get mixed messages though, so important to keep it in perspective. Only one study and only a correlation.
