Canadians' perception of food allergy risk


Methods Households (n = 3,666) were selected at random, as part of a national food allergy prevalence survey, and data were collected via telephone. In addition to determining household allergy status, respondents were asked about environmental health risks, including those associated with food allergy/anaphylaxis. Multivariate logistic regressions, weighted to the age-sex structure of the Canadian population, were used to determine the characteristics of respondents who ranked the risks of food allergy and anaphylaxis as ‘High’ or ‘Moderate’.
