The percentage of children who suffer from food allergies exceeded what has been found in a lot of other medical research. The Northwestern study found that about 6 million U.S. children are affected with food allergies. That amounts to about one in 12 children, or two in every U.S. classroom, lead researcher Dr. Ruchi Gupta said.

Wow, two in every classroom! I never thought of it like that before.

Another leading theory is that a rise in allergy cases is due to a child's exposure to air pollution.
