Food Allergies are Real

Food allergies are real.   Just look at the facts.

According to https://www.foodallergy.org/facts-and-stats,

“Researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in every 13 children (under 18 years of age) in the U.S. That’s roughly two in every classroom.”

Those are the facts.   They are not exaggerated.  Unfortunately, sometimes people don’t understand unless they experience or witness it themselves.   With the holidays coming up, it should be a safe and special time with family and friends.   Therefore, it is important for everyone to put aside any ignorance they may have, learn the facts, and follow restrictions with an open mind and heart.

Here is an article that touches upon this common issue and occurrence. Check it out and help us put an end to the ignorance that often surrounds allergies.   Smiling on to a safe and special holiday season…

      I agree. I was the same way in that I had no clue how serious they could be before my son’s allergic reaction. Ignorance is not bliss though so I wanted to share. Thank you 😄

    Yes, many people don’t understand food allergies, as people in the east are not much susceptible to it, hence the ignorance. Your articles,are a good read, and it’s important for people to understand that food allergies do exist! Like any others!
