How Stuff Works featured research by Christopher Warren of the Keck School of Medicine of USC and colleagues finding that 45 percent of all American adults with food allergies have at least one allergy that only materialized in adulthood. "Adult-onset allergies are particularly interesting to study because they likely involve losing immune tolerance to foods that adults have already been previously exposed to and eaten without having an allergic reaction. This is in contrast to childhood food allergies, which involve the immune system failing to develop tolerance to these allergenic foods in the first place. There may be two distinct mechanisms at work here," said Warren.
