Analysis finds 4% of U.S. children have food allergies

The number of children who have food allergies is not only increasing, it now encompasses 4% of all kids in the United States, according to an analysis of four large, national surveys published today in the journal Pediatrics.

The study is the first to make a broad estimate about the prevalence of food allergies among U.S. children and supports previous studies suggesting that allergy rates are rising rapidly for reasons that are unclear. Government researchers found that self-reported food allergies increased 18% between 1997 and 2007.


Government Is This Public's Enemy!

The current and continuing invasion of the public's right to travel-by-air was created by TSA, and became further complicated by the illegal no-fly lists that now contain over two million names of individuals that are being denied their right-to-fly; based on secret information that cannot be confronted or legally refuted; despite the fact that no one has been arrested for terrorism under these draconian and unconstitutional "new Rules," since they were created.

Sweeping new U.S. breast cancer guidelines released on Monday recommend against routine mammograms for women in their 40s, and suggest women 50 to 74 only get a mammogram every other year.

The new guidelines by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an influential panel of independent experts, would sharply curtail the number of breast mammograms done in the United States, sparing women the worry of false alarms and the cost and trouble of extra tests. But U.S. cancer experts say the altered schedule may mean more women will die from breast cancer.
