Children's Food Allergies on the Rise

A lot of local/national mainstream media picked up one the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention press release about the rise of kids allergies that I linked to yesterday through the New York Times.

[Full report here: Food Allergy Among U.S. Children: Trends in Prevalence and Hospitalizations, Amy M. Branum, M.S.P.H. and Susan L. Lukacs, D.O., M.S.P.H.].

But, HEY MSM: Don't forget, adults have food allergies too!

YES! I started reading your blog a few months ago when searching out information on allergies because many of my friends and relatives have developed food allergies in their adulthood. The pattern in my local group suggests that between the ages of 25 and 35, you may well discover a new allergy that you never suspected you had (though most of these people experienced unexplained sickliness and ill health for a few years before anyone figured out it might be an allergy, and it may have developed at a younger age). We need more awareness of adult allergies, both so that there is more available for those with allergies, and so that adults experiencing unexplained illnesses will think to check for a possible food allergy.
