Food allergy ER cases increase
from The Sentinel
As schools and parents become more aware of potential food allergies for children, one state is reporting increased cases of children visiting the emergency room for treatment of severe food allergies. The Associated Press reported that an analysis of Illinois hospital data showed that the number of ER visits relating to food allergies increased from 226 in 2008 to 590 in 2012. The study was unable to pin down what is driving the trend upward, the AP reported.
