The study, published June 20th in Pediatrics, also showed that more than one third of those kids had severe allergies, and that allergies were more common in minority kids.

Allergies are a particularly difficult chronic condition because kids can't escape food in any part of their daily lives, said lead author Dr. Ruchi Gupta, from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.

I have only skimmed these but I did take at peek at the comments on the today one.....if you are the type to get upset about ignorant people....don't read the comments....there are some really rude people out there too.

OMG. The comments are like a train wreck. I can't keep my eyes from them! Same old conspiracy theories ... chem trails, GM food, breastfeeding vs formula, vaccines causing all issues, too many antibiotics ... I seriously hope it's only a few crazies posting under different names, and that there really are not that many people who suffer from these delusions. :scratchy

Mind you, the article's numbers are confusing - I think some people are taking the 40% severe number to mean 40% of all kids, not 40% of the 8% (which comes to 3% .... ).

Here's my favourite comment:

Food allergies are the "repressed memories" of the 2000s.

I know, eh? As sick as most of the comments are, that one is at least original. And, I confess, a little bit funny.

Maybe disbelief in anaphylaxis is the result of repressed memories? :banghead

Great discussion on NPR - thanks for posting, AA.

Here's also Dr. Sicherer, one of the senior allergists at Mount Sinai's Jaffe Clinic, speaking to CNN - http://am.blogs.cnn.com/2011/06/20/majo ... lains-why/
