8. For many years I have thought all these

crazy food allergies young people now have must be due to something in processed foods. ADHD, too.

I was an oddball in grade school because I was the only kid who had allergies and related asthma (mold and mildew was the trigger). I've only known a handful of folks my age and older with food allergies, and it's always shellfish. Over 20 years of waiting tables, I only had few customers with allergies- again, it was almost always shellfish.

What has changed since then is the proliferation of processed foods. It's the one common factor across all regions of the US and all socioeconomic groups. I bet the food lobbies work hard to make sure studies on this are suppressed.
