College Students with Food Allergies

An article in the Ventura County Star on March 7, 2010 entitled "College dining halls adjust to students with allergies" states that only 4% of the Americans under the age of 18 have food allergies. According to me that number is way too low. It is yet to be appreciated that many childhood symptoms and conditions are caused by reactions to foods. Headaches, bed-wetting, ear infections, constipation, intestinal gas, nightmares, aggressive behavior, ADHD, asthma, acne, and many others are often caused by, or made worse by the consumption of certain foods.

Help your kids be healthy and feel great. Find out what they are allergic to. Beware of those who tell you that food allergies are uncommon.



  1. My visiting sister-in-law was starting to help herself to breakfast when she remarked, with rice milk in hand, that she stopped drinking milk after her visit with us a year ago. She finds many of our "ways" rather strange, but ends up seeing the benefits of some of them and adopting them herself!

    Yes, we do have an effect on one another!
