What’s going on?
It cannot escape your notice, even if you’ve just arrived from Mars. That a high percentage of the UK population has some sort of allergy or intolerance. I’ve never seen or heard as many people with a runny nose or constantly sneezing, it’s a national sport nowadays. That includes me.
This didn’t happen when I was a kid (I’m 50 now), yes there were a few people who had eczema, asthma and hay fever, but not in the numbers we have today. It’s definitely at more than pandemic proportions.
It’s another modern illness phenomenon that’s affecting a high number of the globe. But Why?
Over the past few years, there have been a few well-documented deaths due to reactions to certain food types, and ingredients. The Pret-A-Manger incidents spring to mind. According to www.allergyuk.org, the UK has the largest rate of allergic conditions in the world. 20% (about 12 million) of the population has an allergy. Not only that but over 150 million Europeans have chronic allergic diseases.
The future doesn’t look rosy either the current prediction is by 2025 half of the EU will be sneezing, coughing, wheezing, burping or scratching.
Think about it. We in the western world are meant to be the standard-bearers, the beacon of medical hope. We apparently have the best of the best that modern medical advances can offer. That’s the story that we’ve been sold anyway.
Is this what we voted in government after government for, to increase illness?
