Allergy Breakthroughs of 2018
Theories abound as to why food allergies are on the rise. One suggests modern people are "too clean", another blames processed foods and yet another places the weight on what children eat during infancy. While the exact reason for the growing number of food allergies is unproven, it is clear that they are more prevalent.

More than 53,000 U.S. households were surveyed between October 2015 and September 2016. Allergy to tree nuts increased 18% from 2010 when data was last collected, and allergy to shellfish increased 7%. Peanut allergies increased by 21%. Also evident was an increase in occurrence in black children compared to white children, with peanut allergies about 50% higher.

A multitude of studies are taking place to manage these staggering numbers and recent breakthroughs are bringing hope to those affected. Read the below to learn more:
