Why Your Grandparents Didn't Have Food Allergies...But You Do
#1
Come to think of it, I don't recall my grandparents (born in the 1800's) having any allergies, food or otherwise, nor my aunts and uncles either.

A very thought provoking article this:

WHY YOUR GRANDPARENTS DIDN’T HAVE FOOD ALLERGIES…BUT YOU DO

Did your grandparents have food allergies? Mine sure didn’t. A stark comparison to the growing epidemic of food allergies, worsening with every generation.
So why didn’t your grandparents have food allergies? It’s really quite simple…

1) THEY ATE SEASONAL REAL FOOD.
Food came from farms and small markets in the early 1900’s, and because food preservatives were not widely used yet, food was fresh. Because of the lack of processed food, their diets were nutrient dense allowing them to get the nutrition they needed from their food.
For babies, breast milk was valued and it was always in season.

2) THEY DIDN’T DIET, AND PLAY RESTRICTIVE GAMES WITH THEIR BODY AND METABOLISM. THEY ATE FOOD WHEN FOOD WAS AVAILABLE.
Our grandparents did not fall victim to fad diets, food marketing, calorie counting, and other detrimental dieting habits that are popular today (in part because the marketing infrastructure didn’t exist yet). Because of this they had a healthy metabolism, and ate according to their body’s needs and cravings.

3) THEY COOKED FOOD AT HOME, USING TRADITIONAL PREPARATION METHODS FROM SCRATCH.
Buying processed food was not an option, and eating out was a rare luxury. Lucky for our grandparents these habits actually increased their health.

4) THEY DIDN’T EAT GMOS, FOOD ADDITIVES, STABILIZERS AND THICKENERS.
Food was not yet treated with additives, antibiotics and hormones to help preserve shelf life and pad the pockets of food producers in the early 1900’s at the expense of the consumer’s health.

5) THEY ATE THE WHOLE ANIMAL THAT INCLUDED MINERAL RICH BONE BROTHS AND ORGAN MEATS.
Animal bones were saved or bought to make broths and soups, and organ meats always had a special place at the dinner table. These foods were valued for their medicinal properties, and never went to waste.

6) THEY DIDN’T GO TO THE DOCTOR WHEN THEY FELT SICK OR TAKE PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS. DOCTOR VISITS WERE SAVED FOR ACCIDENTAL INJURIES AND LIFE THREATENING ILLNESS.
When they got a fever, they waited it out. When they felt sick, they ate soups, broths and got lots of rest. They did not have their doctor or nurse on speed dial, and trusted the body’s natural healing process a whole lot more than we do today. Their food was medicine, whether they realized it or not.

7) THEY SPENT LOTS OF TIME OUTSIDE.
Our grandparents didn’t have the choice to stay inside and play on their phones, computers and gaming systems. They played on the original play-station:  bikes, swing-sets and good ol’ mother nature!

AND WHAT DO THESE THINGS HAVE TO DO WITH FOOD ALLERGIES?
Nutrition affects EVERY cell in our body. The health of our cells is dependent on diet and lifestyle. Cells create tissues, tissues create organs,  and we are made up of a system of organs. Ifyour nutrition is inadequate, the integrity of each cell, tissue and organ in your body will suffer, thus you may be MORE sensitive to certain foods.

Mc Donald's has changed the way food is processed in our world. They modeled the food industry the way Henry Ford manufactured cars: with the production line.  So when we buy hamburger meat at the supermarket, that one hamburger contains thousands of different cows, not just one.  The big corporations like monsanto (monsatan) have the money to manipulate the food industry, and governments have allowed this. We no longer have farms where animals are raised, we have industrial "farms" where animals are kept in overcrowded spaces, in their own poop, and pumped up with antibiotics so they don't get sick. Some of that poop gets into the meat during processing. They're fed hormones to make them grow fast. The sick ones are harvested with the others. this is a big reason why antibiotics don't work or won't work in the future. Food industry equals extreme greed...It's just disgusting!

Yes, and while they're in that big yard, walking around in the poop, they're fed corn. Just corn, GMO corn, proven to be lower, a lot lower in nutritional value too boot. Its that corn diet, not the usual or preferred grass diet, that they are fed. Not much grass to eat in a stockyard. That corn diet makes them get fatter and changes the chemistry in their stomach making it a better place for Drug Resistant strains of Echoli to proliferate in their guts. Then when they are slaughtered and a leakage takes place, bunches of people get sick.

lovely.

When they were raised on small farms and ranches, then sold at small local auctions, this didn't happen and outbreaks of any disease was easier to isolate and control from spreading.

Interesting...but not really true.

We know my great aunt was probably lactose intolerant. She was a very sickly baby according to my  great grandmother.  She was always vomiting and quite thin.  It wasn't until quite recently we put it together. 

They just were told by a doctor to try different foods and then when they removed all the dairy, she got better.

Two other children in her family weren't as lucky.

Same great grandmother used to joke that she'd sneeze from spring straight through until winter.

Huh...maybe that's why she ended up living in the desert?  I never thought about that.  I'll have to call mom and ask. Mom used to tell us all to be good or we'd be sent to deser to live with gram-gram  for the summer. 

My mom used to hate those summers. 

Also, oddly enough I don't have any allergies. Guess I'm lucky.

I was mildly lactose intolerant as an infant. I survived on goat's milk (expensive) and oatmeal water (cheap). My only other food allergy, shared with my sisters, is that raw carrots give me the hiccoughs. And, thanks be to God I outgrew the lactose problem, because I love milk!

One reason is that people died earlier and of other things. If there was  a food allergy and it was fatal then they died young.
