What has caused the explosion of allergies? I was born in 1960 and I didn’t know anyone who was allergic to food. If any of you are that old, did you know anyone with allergies? I visited my kid’s middle school a few years ago and ate lunch in the cafeteria. They have entire tables for allergy free foods. If you want to bring in a snack to a classroom today you need a computer program outlining what is acceptable. Class lists now list banned foods from nearly 3/4 of the class.
I’m no scientist and I didn’t research to see what the theories are. I’m sure I will get some quality feedback trying to educate me. Maybe its linked to climate change? I’m not downplaying allergies. They can be very serious and I feel for people who suffer from them. According to a local pastor, there can be no nuts on his church property or four of the members will die.
What have we done to ourselves and our society to make this drastic change in 50 years? Is it genetic tampering? Chemicals? Pesticides? I’m serious….how did this happen so radically and in such a short time? We are supposed to be the healthiest nation and yet we are obese (me included) and we suffer from every food ailment possible.
What was meant to be a blessing has turned into a curse. Do you know why?
Genesis 9:3 Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
