Prevalence of food sensitivities

Food sensitivities collectively rank among the most common food-related illnesses, although most of the individual types food sensitivities –such as cow’s milk allergy, peanut allergy. Asthma – are rather rare.

Studies by Dr. S. Allan Bock of the National Jewish Medical and Research Center in Denver suggest that about 5 percent of all infants under 6 years of age likely risk known diverse reactions to foods.

But of these the most frequently encountered reaction (rash and/or diarrhea after being fed fruit juices) is likely to be non-allergic. Among older age groups, food sensitivities are likely to be considerably lower.
