Most people not really allergic to foods identified by blood tests.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has revised its guidelines for allergy testing after determining that merely doing blood tests is not enough to accurately diagnose an allergy.  They have found that up to 90 percent of people who have been told to avoid foods based on blood tests actually have no allergy to the foods, such as peanuts.  Many of the restrictions that have been implemented against such foods in public apparently are unnecessary and overprotective.
