FACTS ABOUT FOOD ALLERGIES

WHO HAS FOOD ALLERGIES?

In the U.S., 15 million people have food allergies, including nearly 6 million children under age 18. That’s 1 in 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom. The prevalence of food allergy increased by 50 percent between 1997 and 2011, while the prevalence of peanut and tree nut allergies appears to have more than tripled between 1997 and 2008.

WHAT MAKES FOOD ALLERGIES DANGEROUS?

There is no treatment to prevent anaphylaxis ­– a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction – only emergency treatment to control a reaction that is already in progress. For some people, even a tiny trace of the wrong food can trigger an anaphylactic reaction. Food allergy reactions account for 203,000 emergency room visits each year, sending someone to the ER every three minutes.

People with food allergies must always be vigilant. Dangerous traces of problem foods can hide anywhere – in poorly labeled food products, on utensils and manufacturing equipment, on classroom desks and doorknobs, even carried on another person’s hands or transmitted through a kiss
