Food allergies are up among children, but the problem seems to be growing among black children faster than others.

A new study says food allergy reports among black children have risen at a rate of more than two percent per decade over the last 23 years. The rate among white children was one percent, and it was slightly higher among Hispanic children.

Another new study found that people who are allergic to milk, eggs and soy products are usually more likely to tolerate those allergies than those who are allergic to nuts.
