- In 2014 Mothering.com partnered with Tummy Calm in conducting a survey in which they asked parents to take part in a food allergy survey over a period of 3 months. 90% of those polled stated their child suffered from food sensitivities or food allergies.

- Child food allergies are on the rise and have increased over 50% between the years 1997 to 2011: (source: http://www.today.com/video/today/54414860#54414860). I think it’s important for parents to know that food allergies are on the rise.
- CNN wrote a very informative piece on “Why food allergies are on the rise” source:http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/08/03/food.allergies.er.gut/ ).
Resources about Allergies
I write for TriplePundit on occasion, and I had one article about the worrisome and growing trend on allergies. A reader wrote to me to share her research on the topic. So I’d like to share them here with you.
