Hello Food Allergy Buzz,

I absolutely love your blog! Out of all the food allergy blogs I've seen it has been the most interesting and has helped me the most. So anyway I had some quick questions, first I recently read your post "Food Allergies, Asthma, and Eczema: Emotional Effects on Children, Part 1" and I was wondering if you knew anything else about the psychological effects of living with food allergies for children. Also I was wondering if you had any opinions on why there has been a sudden increase in childhood food allergies in the past ten or so years. Thank you for helping!

Thank you for the kind words.

I'll soon be adding the 2nd post regarding Food Allergies, Asthma and Eczema: Emotional Effects on Children. Please note I am not a medical professional; just a mom of a child with food allergies, eczema and asthma, though I read a lot and keep up with the latest food allergy conversations and topics as much as possible. I can help point people to useful food allergy resources, articles, etc. One thing I can say is that the psychological effects certainly vary from one person to another depending on a person's unique circumstances. (the allergies a person has, how his/her parents manage those allergies, etc)

There has been quite a bit written about the increase in food allergies. There is SO much to read on the subject. Where to begin? I think this article from the NY Times is as good a place as any t start: http://roomfordebate.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/05/16/theC-squishy-science-of-food-allergies/

I hope the link helps! Have a great weekend!
