ABSOLUTELY!!! Stop eating chemicals and start eating food. If you can't grow it or even pronounce it, why are you eating it!!!?

I believe there most definitely is. Corn, for example, is a food allergy on the rise, and (if you do the research) you will see that corn now is not what corn was then when corn allergies were unheard of. I've even heard of people with milk intolerances/allergies being able to drink "raw" milk without issue. It sure makes you think. The way I see it, when you change the way the food was intended to be, when you change its genetics, you open the door to intolerance, and (inevitably) allergy. Our bodies are just not meant to process the change in the food's genetic coding. I believe your body will do one of three things: 1-Digest what it can, leaving the modified part to just pass, possibly keeping you from getting the nutrients exactly like you were meant to get them from it, but otherwise leaving you unaware that there was an issue with it. 2-Try to process it, but not being able to do it the right way, making you sick in some form, showing you to have an intolerance to it. 3-Freak out and have a major reaction to it in some form, showing you to have an allergy to it. That's just my theory on it, though. Lots of people don't see a link, but maybe that's because they don't want to. It may never be proven one way or the other to everyone's satisfaction, but you know your body. You know what makes you sick, makes you feel better, etc. Trust that. Go by your convictions on this matter, and take anything else with a grain of salt. :)

I think there is also a link between the vaccinations given to our kids (which contain all sorts of things including egg). Vaccinations are being given at younger and younger ages than ever before and more of them than ever before and we also see the food allergies rising. The biggest issue with vaccines is that they are injected into our babies- hence bypassing the bodies natural systems/defenses. If something were ingested, at least their little bodies could try to pass it through or vomit if their immune system detected an issue, but with a vaccine, no opportunity for that. The protective coating (myelin sheath) around the brain isn't fully developed in infancy, so vaccination contents make their way through the blood system right to our little one's developing brain. :(

Absolutely. I'm new to Circle of Moms, but I joined because I'm seeking support to deal with my husband and daughter's allergies to soy (my husband is also allergic to nuts). The more I read, the more I'm convinced that we are the guinea pigs, and that allergies are just one side effect of their experiment (and I'm not normally one for conspiracy theories.) In my travels through the soy literature, I recently read this:
http://thefutureoffoodfilm.wordpress.com...

I feel for everyone who has to deal with all the different allergens, and I'm especially overwhelmed by how to deal with soy, since it's in 3/4 of foods at the grocery store. We can hardly eat out, and worse, we can't eat at friends' houses. They just don't understand.

Kathy

P.S. I started this page to try to spread the word about soy issues: subtractsoynow.weebly.com and I have started a soy-free petition to the Girl Scouts. I'd love if you'd take a moment to sign and spread the word.

P.P.S. I'll definitely vote for your page :)

Sickening, isn't it? I think the rise in autism, add, adhd etc are all linked too. What will it take for big business to care? A huge class action? By then it will be too late. Meanwhile our kids are guinea pigs. The 'experts' blame food allergies on the hygiene hypothesis... rubbish i think. I raised my children with the same exposure to germs. Its such a huge can of worms and I have so much to say. Would you mind voting for my food allergy blog ' http://www.circleofmoms.com/blogger/pare...

"Parent a child with Multiple Food Allergies' its in the Top 25 for circle of moms.. Thanks. Nice talking to you. By the way altzheimers is in my family also...

Hi Sonya,
I responded to your earlier post, and somehow it deleted it. I completely agree and it also makes me raise an eyebrow, since my oldest has Autism and my Mom of just 63 has Alzheimer's. There are too many food allergies and too many neurological conditions and this could be a major factor. Thanks for your input and I look forward to reading more of your posts.

I recently had a lady comment on my Facebook page (allergysave) that according to the book "The Unhealthy Truth" by Robin O'Brien that GMOs were introduced for human consumption in 1996 and that the increase of peanut allergies started in 1997. Coincidence? I think now. Our bodies arent built to digest these foods.

Absolutely! There has to be a link. The rise in GE foods and the sudden rise in food allergies within one generation. I think it is absurd that GE food safety issues are self regulated despite the evidence of harm to animals. Our children are the guinea pigs, when will it stop? My son was severely allergic to peanuts, treenuts, eggs, dairy, soy, rice, oats,wheat, corn.potatoes, peas, chicken, fish, shellfish... while my daughter has no food allergies. It really upsets me that big companies can get away with this while putting so many childrens lives at risk.
