Food Allergy Trends: The Rise of Food Allergies
Food allergies among children are rising dramatically. There are many causes for the growing prevalence in the U.S., that may include Vitamin D insufficiency, decreased exposure to germs and allergens, and food allergen avoidance. In total, food allergies now affect as many 1 in 12 children in the United States. Unfortunately, there is no cure for food allergies, which can be severe and potentially life-threatening, in addition to quality of life impacts. Recent research shows that up to 1 in 3 food allergic children are bullied as a direct result of having a food allergy.
