How common are allergies?

Allergies are very common and approximately 10-30% of people are affected by allergies. The prevalence of allergic conditions has increased significantly over the last 20 years and continues to rise34 – in fact, for example, 1 in 5 people in America have either allergy or asthma symptoms.34

Family history or genetics plays a large role in whether you will develop an allergy or not and this risk will be higher if your parents or siblings have allergies.34 If one of your parents is allergic you will have a 33 % chance of developing an allergy and if two of your parents are allergic then the chance of your developing allergies will rise to 70 %.34
