The increase is in our awareness. Many people are allergic, but the symptoms of their allergic reaction are minor. Itchy throat, scratchy eyes and after a few minutes the symptoms pass. We are learning that this is more of a "sensitivity". The allergy to gluten and dairy is usually more of a sensitivity as well. It's also by choice of diet. We are also spending more time outside of our homes and in different settings than ever before. Scouts, soccer, football, and cheerleading to name a few. It's the responsiblity of the adults in charge to secure safe surrounding. My kids know friends can't come over unless I know about allergies, sensitivities, or any possible medical concerns like being prone to seizures. This is how I provide a safe setting for my kids and their friends and the parents are much more relaxed when they know I'm concerned about their wellbeimg!
