Food Allergies Are a Growing Problem

The prevalence of food allergies, particularly to peanuts and tree nuts, is on the rise, with rates doubling to tripling in many countries over the past 10 to 15 years. Food allergies, particularly to nuts and seafood, can be severe and life-threatening, with more cases of fatal food allergy reactions being reported every year. For the most part, there is no cure for food allergies, although a small number of research centers are performing studies on immunotherapy for certain food allergies, such as peanuts, milk, and eggs. The standard treatment for food allergies is the avoidance of the culprit food, as well as the treatment of allergic reactions that may occur from the accidental ingestion of the food.
