Abstract

According to the national organization FARE (Food Allergy Research Education), researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans, including one in 13 children, have food allergies. In fact, a 2013 report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the number of children with food allergies in the U.S. increased 50 percent between 1997 and 2011. Food allergy reactions send someone to the emergency department every three minutes, resulting in more than 200,000 emergency department visits in the U.S. per year. (FARE, n.d.).
