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.
