According to the Centers for Disease Control, food allergies in American children seem to be on the rise, and they now affect about 3 million kids. About 1 in 26 children had food allergies last year, up from 1 in 29 kids in 1997. The study's author says the 18-percent increase is statistically significant. Nobody knows for sure what's driving the increase. One reason may be that parents are more aware and are quicker to have their kids checked out by a doctor. Larry Mantle talks with childhood Dr. Kari Nadeau, Director of the Allergy Clinics at Stanford University, Dr. Sheila Bonilla, allergist, immunologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at USC, and takes listener calls.
