In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we take a look at how and why food allergies affect so many of us. Conquering mine has helped me immensely on my Bulletproof journey and I want to share a conversation that could help you do the same.

Dr. Kari Nadeau is considered one of the world’s leading experts on food allergy, and is the author of the new book “"The End of Food Allergy, featuring Immunotherapy: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse a 21st-Century Epidemic". For more than 30 years she’s focused her expertise on the environmental and genetic factors that affect the risk of developing allergies and asthma, and the molecular mechanisms underlying the diseases.

Allergies play a growing role in every part of our lives. They happen because of the products we put on our skin, the foods we eat every single day, and the products we use in our home and work environment. Dr. Nadeau offers ways to spot the allergens all around you.

“We have the science,” Dr. Nadeau says. “We should do better and make people's quality of life better in general: on the therapy side, on the convention side, as well as on the diagnostic side.”

Here are some quick allergy facts:

  • One in three Americans has some form of allergies.
  • It is estimated that one in 20 adults in America (5%) has a food allergy and 1 in 13 children in the U.S. suffers from food allergy
  • The rate of people with food allergies is doubling approximately every 10 years.
  • Adults with food allergies have a 65% chance of passing those allergies to their children.
  • 90% of food allergies are caused by the following 8 allergenic foods: cow’s milk, soy, wheat, peanut, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, egg.

“If you don't treat your body well within any given year, you might develop a food allergy,” Dr. Nadeau says. “You've got to take care of yourself because any one person can develop a food allergy newly, even if they didn't have an allergy before. This is a growing epidemic; it's just not a US-based disease anymore. It's growing around the world.”

In the midst of a growing epidemic, Dr. Nadeau shares information about a potential upcoming treatment process that could help you find out what your allergies are, manage them if you already have them and potentially end them.

Listen on to find out the differences between food sensitivities and allergies, thresholds for bodily stress, and ways we can both cure and prevent asthma and allergies. Dr. Nadeau answers all these questions and much more.
