How Many People Have Food Allergies? (Infographic)

The gluten-free lifestyle is becoming increasingly well-known, but how many people really suffer from celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and other food allergies? A new infographic by Fooducate seeks to answer that question. While it only covers data from the U.S., it provides some fascinating information on who’s living with food allergies and how that is changing. Check it out below!

Interesting chart, especially with those that are lactose intolerant, which is probably since drinking milk is a habit that has been formed by misinformation.

I do have real allergies that are life threatening, but these are not, with the exception of tree nuts, in the list of "the major 8". Mine are mostly fruits and vegetables, not many, but serious. Add the seasonal things like pollen and mold, and it becomes a permanent disability that needs medication and watchfulness. To be seriously allergic to a common ingredient like tomato means that every meal in a restaurant or a package must be checked for every ingredient in the prepared food. People are very considerate now, and do ask in the kitchen, which has helped me so much.

I don't know that it is so much the food but what they do to it.
