Wednesday, October 22nd — Food Allergies

October 23, 2008

Today I Learned…

…that strawberries are not a common food allergy, despite what the customer at my store said.

The eight most common food allergies in the United States are:

  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Peanuts
  • Tree Nuts
  • Seafood
  • Shellfish
  • Soy
  • Wheat

You’ll notice that strawberries are /not/ on this list.

    So… number nine, then?

    Food allergies… grargh. When I was a kid, if you had an allergy to food, you just didn’t eat that kind of food. This whole “require that someone provide a nondairy nonnuts nonwheat vegan alternative made out of gravel and processed plant proteins” nonsense is such a waste of time.

    If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go make a seafood omelet with tree nuts and a peanut butter sandwich. No soy, though. Bollocks to soy.
