This is such a popular question that even people who don't have any allergies are asking it
Buffalo, NY (Vocus) July 20, 2009
Allergy is the 5th leading chronic disease in the U.S. among all ages and the 3rd most common chronic disease among children under 18 years old. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention the number of young people who had a food or digestive allergy increased 18% in the ten years between 1997 and 2007. The prevalence of asthma increased 75% from 1980 to 1994, while asthma rates in children under the age of five have increased more than 160% for the same period according to the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, a series produced by the CDC. Consumers interested in understanding reasons why allergies are increasing so significantly can watch a new video or download a free document from motivational speaker and cookbook author, Lisa A. Lundy's website at http://www.TheSuperAllergyCookbook.com.
Allergies and asthma rates are not projected to improve as a World Health Organization global surveillance document of chronic respiratory diseases estimates that the number of worldwide asthmatics will increase by a third to 400 million in less than 20 years. Current medical opinions about why allergies and asthma have been increasing at such a significant rate remain mixed and unclear and include being too clean (the hygiene theory) and increased allergy awareness and diagnosis. The question of why are allergies on the rise is a popular one. "This is such a popular question that even people who don't have any allergies are asking it" Lundy said. "I find that people are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, and they are looking for logical and reasonable ways to feel better. In some cases, people are asking the question so they know what to do to prevent becoming sick."
Lundy is the author of The Super Allergy Girl™ Allergy & Celiac Cookbook- From A Mother Who Knows™, a gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, peanut-free, tree nut free and other allergen free resource complete with both information and recipes to help the beginner to the advanced baker. Lundy's third child, Anne, has had life threatening health issues since infancy due to her inability to absorb vitamins and minerals from her diet. Anne has severe food allergies to eggs, milk, peanuts and tree nuts and has a history of asthma. A food expert before Anne was born, Lundy spent hours at the medical library researching Anne's condition and medicine when the family HMO balked at paying for Anne's life-saving medical treatments.
Having spent over $100,000 to cover out-of-pocket medical expenses, Lundy has taken on using what she has learned to help others avoid health issues and improve their health status and to provide inspiration during a time of anxiety and frustration. Lundy's book is available at http://www.TheSuperAllergyCookbook.com, a content-rich website designed to help consumers with white papers, documents, tip sheets, videos and recipes. Anne is now 7 years old and has improved dramatically in the last three years - going from a modern day bubble child to a chatty girl who loves dogs, amusement parks and the beach - a girl who can go places without needing an asthma inhaler every day. Lisa and her husband, Randy Garrett, feel that this is a pretty good return on an investment of their $100,000, and they are interested to see what the Obama administration is going to do to ensure that both State and Federal laws are enforced with respect to health insurance companies.
