Survey reveals widespread lack of knowledge about food allergy among general public

From Forbes.com:

Online survey of 2,148 adults found that 50% of respondents incorrectly believed that there is a cure for food allergy.

The survey reveals widespread lack of knowledge and awareness about food allergy among the general public.

More than 2/3 of U.S. adults mistakenly believe that daily medicine can be taken to prevent a food allergy reaction.

76% of food allergy-related deaths follow consumption of foods outside of the home.


Eight top allergens account for 90 percent of all food allergies. See more Allergy and Immunology mind maps here.
