This Israeli startup, MyOR, discovered how to assess if a baby is at risk of developing allergies and provides a holistic option to prevent allergies from developing, reports Israel21c:

The Tel-Aviv based company, founded in 2018, uses AI models and predictive data from studies worldwide to forecast which newborns are at risk of developing food allergies and atopic dermatitis (eczema).

This gives pediatricians a tool to guide parents on how to prevent allergies.

“We didn’t invent the idea that allergies can be avoided, but we did understand that there’s so much that parents need to know,” explains CEO Idan Katz…

“We provide a plan to support the parents [of that 40%], giving them physical products that prevent allergies such as skin creams and snacks for the early introduction of allergens.”
