How medical science got it exactly wrong on childhood food allergiesHow prevalent are food allergies? According to the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, the prevalence of children under the age of 18 afflicted with food allergies increased by 18% from 1997 to 2007. For certain food allergies, the increase has been even steeper. Children in North America and the U.K., for example, have seen the prevalence of peanut allergies double in a decade, according to a 2008 study published by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. And a Canadian study about peanut allergies conducted on Montreal families showed an increase from 1.34% in the 2000-2002 period to 1.62% prevalence in the 2005-2007 period.“We don’t have a good explanation for why that is,” Papadopoulos said. “But delayed introduction does seem to be a factor.” (Getty Images/Thinkstock)
