Sign of the Times: Food allergens are omnipresent dangers for millions of Americans

Warning: The food is not fit to eat.
Aaron Dykes

It’s a sign of the times, where restaurants everywhere include disclosures about the presence of food allergens, or brag about items that are gluten free, soy free, dairy free, peanut free, etc.

Some 15 million Americans are estimated to have food allergies, according to a fact sheet at, with a rise in the percentage of people suffering from allergies rise at a pace of at least 18% over the past decade in the U.S., with a similar trend across the Western world.

Food states, “The number of people who have a food allergy is growing, but there is no clear answer as to why.”

Why? No one knows why? Perhaps because food production has centralized into a few hands, while the government has subsidized corn and soy, so that Big Agra can add it to nearly everything.

Now, more than 90% of that corn and soy is genetically modified, with many documented dangers, including increased risks of cancer, sterility, infertility, immune system damage, digestive disorders and a correlation with rises in – you guessed it – food allergens.

As the photo shows, this fast food restaurant, displaying a well-worn sign, simply declared that allergens (presumably of any and all kinds) are present in general. No guarantees whatsoever about the foods’ standards.

No doubt about what is tied to the trend of unhealthy living, including food allergies. Don’t worry, Big Pharma and Obamacare-sponsored Big Health is waiting on the other side…
