A new publication by Dr. Sébastien La Vieille from the PARERA platform


This new publication (Clarke et al, 2020) presents the latest data on the prevalence of reported food allergies in Canada.

Sumary: The prevalence of self-reported food allergy increased from 7.1% to 9.3% between 2010 and 2016, whereas food allergy based on history or physician diagnosis remained stable (5.9% vs 6.1%). This increase in selfreported allergy is likely attributable to increasing awareness.
