In addition, the study found that 40% of children have food allergies that are considered severe, with such symptoms as wheezing, difficulty breathing, and drops in blood pressure.

One of the researchers in the study, Dr. Ruchi S. Gupta, ( Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois) stated, 'I don't think people quite understand food allergy. It could be something that's life-threatening. It could cause death." [WebMD: 'Food Allergies in Kids More Common Than Thought']
