Australia;Highest Rate of Food Allergies in the World

AUSTRALIANS are now reporting food allergies at a rate higher than any other country in the world according to experts  at the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy conference in New Zealand.Current estimates show one in 10 Australian children suffers from a food allergy, with many of those allergies remaining until adulthood.
Experts say that food allergies are on the rise and becoming more  severe  but are still at a loss to explain the rise, the increase in severity and why it is taking children longer to outgrow food allergies.
