Food Allergy Facts – Awareness Week, Day 5

Each day during food allergy awareness week I am sharing some facts based on the most recent data and research. Here are today’s facts:

According to Dr. Kari Nadeau at the FAI Editorial Roundtable on April 11, 2012:
  • If one parent has any type of allergy (allergic rhinitis, asthma, food allergy, etc.), his or her child has a 65% chance of having some type of allergy.
  • If both parents have an allergy, their offspring have an 85% chance of having some type of allergy, and will likely have more severe allergies.
Please share these facts with your audiences.

How sad to know that a child will also go through suffering the allergy symptoms like the parents. This information is really helpful, especially for those who are not still aware.
