Food Allergies in Children

Monday, 29 Aug 2011 08:46 AM

Question: Can you explain why it seems so many children have food allergies these days?

Dr. Brownstein’s Answer:

More children today have food allergies as compared to 20 years ago, although it is unclear why.

According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, food allergies affect one in 13 U.S. children. The results of the study, which was based on in-home interviews with 20,104 children, were reported by The Associated Press on June 20.

My clinical experience has shown children today are exposed to more toxins, while at the same time they are more nutritionally depleted compared to children in years past. However, detoxifying and correcting nutritional imbalances improves nearly all food allergies.
