How many are legit and how many are feigned for attention? My friend who has worked in a few nice restaurants as a server said she accidentally gave an item fried in peanut oil to a woman who claimed she was allergic to peanuts. Nothing happened. I don't think everyone is faking a peanut allergy or anything but I'm not sure everyone is actually being honest about it.

I certainly do not remember all of these food allergies being a problem when I was a kid.

Not surprised.

As a dentist, I deal with people's "allergies" all the time and a good chunk of the time it's all in their head.

I've learned from working in the food industry that it's actually trendy now to have a glutton allergy.

I had a cousin once eat some noodles and ask what was in it. We told her there was dried scallops in there and that's when she mentioned she was allergic to scallops. She didn't have an allergic reaction to it though, but she has had allergic reactions to any form of scallops in the past. Perhaps she's no longer allergic to them anymore, but it's not like she's going to start stuffing her face with scallops whenever she gets the chance.

My assumption is that people that used to be allergic to something will still try to avoid it as much as possible, whether or not they may currently be allergic to it.

Peanut oil can be pressed multiple ways, depending on how it's done the proteins that trigger the allergy may or may not be present in the oil.

Celiac disease isn't an allergy to gluten, it's similar to lactose intolerance.

And if anyone claims to be allergic to Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) they're full of ****.
