Why Are There So Many Food Allergies in US Now?

Between 1997 and 2002 the number of peanut allergies doubled, and the number of hospitalizations related to allergic reactions to food increased by a whopping 265% .

One out of 17 US children now has some form of food allergy. And allergy rates are rising.

Is There Something "Foreign" in Our Food Today that Wasn't There Before?


Processed foods in general can contribute to allergies for a number of different reasons. Most processed foods contain a variety offood colorings, flavors, preservatives, and other additives can have a major impact.

But there's another, even more insidious hazard lurking in American food stores...

In the mid-1990's, new food proteins were engineered and introduced into our food supply, yet many people are still, to this day, clueless about this.

It was clearly done to maximize profitability for the food industry, yet NO human trials were ever conducted to see if these genetically engineered proteins were actually safe for animal- and human consumption.

First to be alter was a milk, which incidentally is also number one food allergen in the US.
