Children's allergies nothing to sneeze at.
This week, Newsweek
examines why children’s food allergies are increasing at such an
alarming rate. According to the article, more than 3 million children
suffer from some kind of food allergy, the most common being the
seemingly innocent peanut.
Why the spike in allergic reactions? Newsweek hypothesizes that “we’ve all become too clean” and that living an overly-sanitized life doesn’t allow the body to build up immunities to "good" bacteria — and that’s bad.
We wonder, is there such thing as an allergic reaction to having too many things to worry about?
