    there have been a lot of studies of the rise of food related allergies over the past few decades and they say it's probably from a few things that's been introduced into our food system and medical system around the same time the rise of food allergies has been going up.

    they say these are from probably from the following:

    pesticides and or other chemicals
    hormones, antibiotics into our food
    vaccinations, some view this as necessary and and others certain ones unnecessary
    gmo products
    food like substances replacing actual food

    this is according to some research that i've been following for a couple years, only saying what has been said on these articles


    i also remarked about some people saying that they're just flat out lying about what they're really allergic to just so they don't get to have it in their bodies...

    it's coz of all these darn diets that have been coming out. lol.

    again just an observation

    ok i'll REALLY shut up now. final comment.

Of course, even 20 years ago, she wouldn't have lived a month, so she wouldn't have shown up on the allergy statistics at all. (And no, her parents don't expect to ever take her into a restaurant -- they do everything they can to deal with it themselves.)

    If someone is paying me to cook, and it's easy to substitute out a different product, I'll do it. I don't think a commercial kitchen is a place to make a political stand about "hysteria", esp. when there are enough real cases, and it costs nothing to accommodate.
    Don't disagree with any of that.
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.

    all these chemicals and stuff put into our food can't be good for us.

    if you check vaccine components which are listed on the CDC's website for each vaccine, they have MERCURY and many many other poisonous components included. they even have monkey brains as part of some vaccines, that just sets off alarms in my head. i'm no scientist or immunologist but i don't think it'd be good for you.

    I've had environmental allergies of various sorts all my life (hay fever, mold, etc.), but have never had any real food problems. One of my brothers goes into anaphylaxis if he eats crab, and raw shrimp make my hands itch, but that's about it. Well, in the past couple of years, scrambled eggs make me nauseous, which is a bummer because I really like a good omelette. Not really an allergy -- just a relatively mild digestive insensitivity.

    It's a hard thing to sort out -- there are many factors, and the signal/noise ratio for diagnosis is probably pretty poor. I've read about lots of factors, too -- and I've heard more than one doctor say that one sure way to get food allergies statistics back down to where they were a generation or two back would be to let a bunch of kids with them die. Seriously. There's a reason why you don't hear much about food allergies in the developing world. They're not advocating this, mind you.

    A lot of the food issues people deal with are due less to true allergies, and more to digestive problems. Researchers know even less about our gut than they do about allergies, which can at least be tested for (in most cases). There's some interesting work that suggests that one contributing factor is the prevalence of Caesarian births in the US, which short-circuits the infant's normal exposure to beneficial bacteria through the birth canal. Pretty wild, but fascinating.

    A pretty good accessible article about bacteria:

    I'm as worried about chemicals as anyone, but the mercury thing is wildly overstated. I do agree that we probably don't really understand the range of interactions from the various crap we put in our bodies.

    i have my own beliefs, and you have yours.

    i would appreciate it if you would at least act your age. we are all adults here.

    if you think the dribble that i have been spouting is nonsense or whatever, you could have at least done it in a better way.

    i won't feed the fire anymore. i shut up now.
