I grew up in the 1960s, to the best of my memory, no body that I had personal knowledge of, had a food allergy. Not so today. My own youngest child had several classmates with food reactions, one child had a life threatening food allergy. Is there something with his school here ? No. It is what should be expected; According to a 2013 CDC study which found that food allergy's among children has increased by about 50% between 1997 and 2011.
Today food allergy affects one in every 13 children in the United States. That translates into two children per average class room.
Why ? What is so different today ? What are these things called GMOs ?
